    I bet he's kind of special off the field, too.

    Shows how cultured I am.

    When I saw "Flanders" in Joey's nickname I immediately thought of Ned Flanders and began trying to think about what obscure Simpsons reference he was making.

    Bailey and Stephenson should be handed their immediate releases for a lack of creativity. Amir Garrett should get a stern talking to.

    Robert Stephenson should be cut. That's just unconscious knowledge.

    I disagree. I think Stephenson's nickname is sneakily clever. Most people will immediately think that BOB is just the diminutive of Robert. In truth, BOB stands for Base on Balls.

    Makes me wonder if Ichiro was still playing would he finally be "Suzuki"?

    Personally I woulda gone with "He Hate Me" but then again I'm just original like that

    I like Votto's. I never knew a Canadien actually wrote that poem. It is a very moving poem if you have never read it.

    Harvey and Bailey need some originality lessons.

    Robert Stephenson should be "The Author".

    Good to see DeSclafini likes what RZ nicknamed him.

    Hamilton had better hope that whoever stitches these nicknames on the back of the jersey doesn't mess up and add R to the end of his.

    If anyone needs to be extra vigilant about the stitching it is Preston "Tuck" Tucker

    Seeing Peraza's nickname is Spanish for "the Ranger' should the Reds file a tampering complaint against Texas? Should they be surprised if he bolts in FA?

    In honor of Big Sally and his .031 BA, I will post this here:



    What is odd is that despite being 2 for 56 in his career, both of Romano's hits are doubles.

    "It's better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt."

    I'm not a man of many words. Read my posts, and you'll see what I mean.

    Some people are Optimists (They see the glass 1/2 full).
    Others are Pessimists (They see the glass 1/2 empty).
    Me, I'm a Realist. 1/2 empty IS 1/2 full.
