Totally uncalled for, right? Sorry, trying to bore myself to sleep. Some dude named al is flooding the main board with stupidity tonight.

sCRAP+ - Scrappiness on a 100-average scale. Not sure who is average, just know that Theriot is 999 and Castro is -125.
BELLYf+ - Similar to OBP but uses an exponent of the binomial calculation of the trigonometry of sCRAP+. Theriot is, once again, 999. Aramis was -999 during his tenure with the Cubs.

Here is the aggregate of this thread. If I missed something let me know & I will add it in.
Ace: the former tag line used by the almighty creator, Brett. Other synonyms include, "The One" and "He who will bring balance to the force."
Apocalypse Now: refers to the feeling one received from realizing the Cardinals won the WS. Often followed by a series of fucks.
BELLYf+ - :Similar to OBP but uses an exponent of the binomial calculation of the trigonometry of sCRAP+. Theriot is, once again, 999. Aramis was -999 during his tenure with the Cubs.
BertMan: See Brett, Ace, AceCubbie, #BagOfFeminieHygieneProduct, synonymous to Captain Planet
Blog-A-Thon (see: prostitution) What Brett does to get his readers to send him money to pay for his gold plated bidet.
Bold changes: something for which the organization/roster/lineup wasn't quite ready in June/July.
BNV: (BleacherNation Virgin) this relatively new term refers to those posting on this site for their first time.
"Chemistry". The answer to all a dugout's ills. Some of you new kids might have to scroll back a few months for that.
Convenient "slip of the tounge": trying to get your name in the lexicon for all of posterity.
Cookies: although many believe to know the definition of this word, it has taken on an alter meaning on this site. It once was used to defuse negative, unintelligent anti-Cubs reteric (see diehard). This term was largely overused in its brief exisitence and has since been banned from this site. The only reason for its inclusion in this list is to warn unsuspecting BVN's from unknowingly using the term. Consider yourselves warned.
Crype: (invented by Oswego Chris) term created to sum up the majority of players drafted by the Cubs before 2011.
Dick Tidrow: this man beast roamed the friendly confines from 1979-1982. His lore has grown to unfathomable heights within the halls of BleacherNation and is considered the "Chuck Norris" of his era. Tread lightly if you dare.
diehard: screen name used by a fellow poster to this site. This bitter individual has yet to accept the regime change, and still holds onto wrong doings of Cubs yester year. Take the comments posted by diehard with a grain of salt, but please keep your distance and do not poke the bear.
Duffman: Ace/Brett's former avatar (and current twitter avatar), if you don't know who Duffman is you'll have a hard time keeping up on BN.
ellipsis points (...): an often over used punctuation device that is used way too much by some posters and lends to make a comment appear schizophrenic and difficult to understand.
he Garza Deal: trade done before the 2011 season in which some believe that the Cubs quite literally "sold the farm".
Katie: hansman1982's BN love. Her ability to have a picture taken where she is smoking, drinking a crappy beer and wearing Cubs gear while at Wrigley is the stuff of legends in the hansman1982 cave.
Kyle-ing: arguing for the sake of arguing, especially when it is apparent to anyone outside of a mental institution than you have far more invested in seeming to be right rather than actually getting at any real truth.
MISS: Moxy In Stressful Situations
OBP: Overall Belly-Fire Percentage
Pulling a Hawkeye: referencing a chick flick movie on a website predominately visited by sports loving males.
Pulling a Taylor: To plagiarize.
Scrappy: Small, hustling guys who seem to be allergic to OBPs above .300
sCRAP+ - : Scrappiness on a 100-average scale. Not sure who is average, just know that Theriot is 999 and Castro is -125.
Short and informative: things of which this site is neither.
Sveet: 1.Our new manager.
2. a general feeling of euphoria and or hope
Svell = see sveet
Sveat = persperation generated while practicing fundamentals and taking hacks in the cage
Svelte, something Prince Fielder will never be.
Svearve = often used in a phrase suck as "get you svearve on" I think the cubs will have to win a WS before this can even be discussed.
Sveep = the past tense of this shall never be uttered
Sveltry = a cubs hitter who finds himself in the middle of a hot streak
Svord = ?
Svagger = a new a attitude, see the "the Cubs way"
"Tiresome": the perfect way to explain (and hopefully dismiss) some of the arguing-for-the-sake-of-arguing back-and-forth that has developed recently on the front page comments. Agree, disagree, agree to disagree, whatever. But to keep pressing your point over and over only to be "right", to say "I told you so"? Yawn, man. State your peace and move on. This ain't the comments list at cubs.com.
TOOTBLAN: Thrown Out On The Basepath Like A Nincompoop.
TWTW: The Will To Win aka the only advanced baseball metric that Hawk Harrelson cares about"
Upside: see Crype.
Quaded - vb. to be inept. Trying to save your job by hindering the careers of those under you.
n. A person who makes decisions that makes the insane look down right palatable.
"Y U No take Pitchers Out" - Reference to a pitcher being Quaded by pitching after he obviously is gassed or simply does not have it. Often associated with an image that may or may not bear a cartoonish resemblance to Ozzie Guillen.
Zambrano'd: A word used when the continuation of a debate is no longer fruitful for either party because all facts have been laid out and the debate is becoming less and less effective despite the time cost of the debate increasing. See also: Agree to Disagree

But the truth is when you paint rainbows on unicorns.
