Found April 12, 2013 on Awful Announcing:

During Thursday night's crazy Dodgers-Padres brawl, Dodgers brodcaster Vin Scully has a creative term for an expletive-laced outburst by Matt Kemp: "fertilizer." Instead of repeating the word Kemp was saying during the brawl (bullsh*t, for those curious), Scully went with the unique, technical term. It's actually a tactic he has used before to communicate a player or manager spouting off expletives.  In the context of a bench clearing brawl, it's fantastic. Hats off to you for being the best, Vin.
