In reference to "The Bad News Bears," "Kelly" or "The Loan Shark"

For a long time I've been calling him "The Leakester" Kinda catchy. The white writing on my avatar actually reads, "The Leakester- Pluggin' Leakes"

I like this one. Both a pun and applicable given his demeanor.

"Stretch" because he's so tall.

Not everyone may know the Cool Hand Luke reference though. But I agree that this is the best one. Fits well.

Cool Hand Luke is about as good as you can get. So far he seems unflappable and very unassuming.

How about Clyde or Catfish, in honor of pitchers who also skipped over the minor leagues
Or possibly Rainman, his middle name is Raymond and leak/rain. Remember there are no wrong answers in brainstorming :)

I have been calling him "The Paper Boy", because he looks like a pup, and delivers bad news to opposing batters.

Until he eats 50 eggs, he doesn't deserve the nickname. :)

With as small as he looks and the baby face looks...Opie comes to mind. But I still like Cool Hand Leake.

And as soon as he has a game or two where he gives up too many HR/SB/BB/etc., he'll be leaking them. Let's wait until he completes a second trip around the league before we decide if he's "Cy" Leake or Mike Weake. ;)

if he played for Bobby Cox, he'd be "Leaker". Bobby is a master at giving nicknames.

Good backgrounder in the Enquirer about Leake. "Mikey" fits pretty well.

Nicknames need to be short- Cool Hand works.
Cool Hand Leake does not.

Same difference.

The "Cool Hand" wouldn't work if he wasn't Leake.
