To fail miserably at something. A reference to Philadelphia Phillies beat writer Mandy Housenick of The Morning Call, who wrote an article in the summer of 2010 about how outfielder Jayson Werth should have been traded because he's mean to the media.
Baseball fan: "Wow, T.J. Simers really Housenicked that Marcus Thames column. He was being a real jerk, and he shouldn't of taken it so personally."
