We need to talk about FARTSLAMs.

Ever since /u/FunnyID introduced the FARTSLAM last week in this post, the usage of the term has exploded in our fair sub. I get it - we just got a new toy, we want to play with it all the time, it's a lot of fun to say, it has "FART" in it, etc.

But we need to define it and make a ruling on what is, and is not, a FARTSLAM.

For the uninitiated, let me FARTsplain: FARTSLAM is an acronym which stands for Fielder Allows Runner To Score Like A Moron. The example used by the term's coiner was this 1998 play in which a fielder begins arguing with an umpire during a live ball, oblivious or indifferent to the fact that his arguing was allowing a runner to score.

To me, the spirit of the FARTSLAM means that it is much more than a throwing error or double-clutch, or throwing to one base when he had a better play at another - there has to be an extra layer of moronity on top. The fielder would pretty much have to stop playing baseball for a minute - maybe because he's arguing with an umpire during a live ball, maybe he forgets how many outs there are and jogs in casually thinking there are 3 outs when there are only two, maybe he tosses a live ball to a fan, maybe he throws to an unoccupied base.

A FARTSLAM is NOT just any throwing or fielding error, even a spectacularly bad one, as long as the fielder is trying his hardest to make the play.

Of course, these are just my opinions - but let's discuss it now, come to a consensus on a meaning, and move on with our lives. We can't just have every garden variety throwing error being dubbed a FARTSLAM or the term loses all meaning.

I am so glad we are finally having this conversation.

We're reporters who investigated a power plant accident that burned five people to death – and discovered what the company knew beforehand that could have prevented it. Ask us anything.

Our short bio: We’re Neil Bedi, Jonathan Capriel and Kathleen McGrory, reporters at the Tampa Bay Times. We investigated a power plant accident that killed five people and discovered the company could have prevented it. The workers were cleaning a massive tank at Tampa Electric’s Big Bend Power Station. Twenty minutes into the job, they were burned to death by a lava-like substance called slag. One left a voicemail for his mother during the accident, begging for help. We pieced together what happened that day, and learned a near identical procedure had injured Tampa Electric employees two decades earlier. The company stopped doing it for least a decade, but resumed amid a larger shift that transferred work from union members to contract employees. We also built an interactive graphic to better explain the technical aspects of the coal-burning power plant, and how it erupted like a volcano the day of the accident.

But I guess comparing apples to oranges is unfair.
