arm hangover
 n.— «“After the last outing in Tampa I had what I call an arm hangover,” Bannister said. “It was extra sore. I tried to get ready, but I honestly just didn’t have it tonight. I didn’t punch anybody out until that last batter and that’s a sign. You can’t rely on weak ground balls. You have to get the punch outs sometimes.”» —“Mazzaro ends losing skid as A’s beat Royals” USA Today Aug. 7, 2009. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
