Literally: Evan Gattis “Congers” Up Images

The Seedlings to Stars blog at SI.com is keeping tabs on the winter leagues. Recently, they wrote up Evan Gattis, including this tidbit in the final paragraph:

Evan Gattis, with his barehanded hitting, size, and mug, congers up images of what one would imagine as the original, raw, old school power hitter.[Emphasis mine.]

Literally?


Scouts are taking notice of Evan Gattis’s advanced control of the Conger Caldron.

Is it just in the UK it is spelt ‘conjures’?

I (a thoroughly American individual) have also always spelled it conjure. Weird.

An inadvertent Conger comp may be a bad ohman for Gattis.

Thanks for catching my error. Im actually more pleased that you are bothering to read my article that closely. It is indeed “conjure.” Conger is a word but with a different meaning. Conger is part of the latin name for a family of scaleless eels that are native to the Atlantic.

Well done.
