    Re: nickname for Billy Hamilton

    I would like to nominate the nickname of

    Déjà Vu or Déjà Voom if you want to include the speed element more overtly.

    Not only is he the second super vast Billy Hamilton, but in his first two appearances, the exact same thing happened. Plus, every time he is on first base, you expect to see the same thing again, not to mention that every time he makes it to second, you know he is gonna make it to third one way or another.

    As an alternative, since he is a Southern country boy from nearby Taylorsville, I was thinking about: The Mississippi Moonbeam... fast as light but he looks so calm and smooth doing it.

    I am not a fan of nicknames but I actually kinda like this one! It has an old-timey baseball name feel to it.

    I like the RoadRunner. They can play the "Beep-Beep" sound when he steals...plus probably could have RR promotions too.

    Willy May Hayes Hamilton.

    Reds already have "Wild Thing" in Chapman. Just need Cueto to start sacrificing chickens before games when the team's in a slump.

    Blink, Flash or RoadRunner all good. RoadRunner's interesting since more unique but too many syllables. I think the best nicknames are just one or two syllables. He must have picked one up in high school or the minors, no? Someone in the media needs to ask him that.
