funk
 n.— «His biggest advantage, Mets Manager Willie Randolph said, is that Bradford brings “the funk.” His slider can start at a right-handed hitter’s knees and run across the plate. Or it can zip upward. His sinker, meanwhile, appears to rise before it plunges.» —“The Pitch From Down Under” by Ben Shpigel in Port St. Lucie, Fla. New York Times Jan. 16, 2006.
