I searched the posts but couldn't find it. Juan Uribe had a Spanish phrase or term he'd use when doing pre-game interviews with Ed Farmer. Farmer would often refer to this term when Juan was up, and it meant he was going long or hitting a homer.

Anyone know?

I am not sure of the spelling but I think Farmer calls it going "perfundo"

It is profundo, which in spanish means "deep".

I love hearing Farmeo say profundo. Ed cracks me up with his Spanish pronunciations. He has fun with it and so do I.

Next thing you know, we'll get an iPod with Juan Uribe on the metal backing admiring a home run with his hands up in the air after he drops the bat like it's hot.

Supposedly, Uribe thinks about walking now instead of going deep whenever he talks to Farmer. I think Juan's been affected by Billy Beane in the past couple of years.
