    Hal McCoy called him "Cool Hand Leake" a few starts ago. Works for me

    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.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    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
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    I have been calling him "The Paper Boy", because he looks like a pup, and delivers bad news to opposing batters.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    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.
