Here are the best Players’ Weekend nicknames from each team

Players’ Weekend is back, which means it is time once again to celebrate the expansive variety of nicknames we have in today’s game—and see them featured on the alternate jerseys worn by the players.

My favorites:

D-backs: Brad Boxberger—BOX HAMBURGER
Marlins: Jarlin Garcia—JARLIN THE MARLIN
Athletics: Sean Manaea—MANAEALATOR
Indians: Shane Bieber—NOT JUSTIN

I saw a list where a few players apparently didn't want to participate, just using their actual last name. This should not be allowed. Here's how I would handle it:

1. You come up with a nickname, it cannot be your real name
2. If you cannot do so, you will be assigned a nickname chosen by your teammates.

Homer Bailey "Homer" that is original.

Other than Joey Votto's, this might be my favorite Reds nickname for this:

Rookie Davis "Bill" :-)

Whoever the shortest player in baseball is should call himself "HalfMan", and the fattest player should go with "Lard Lad". It's about claiming ownership.

There really aren't a lot of great nicknames out there but "Mayor of Ding Dong City" for Travis Shaw is just great. That's a Gas House Gang era style nickname, descriptive, fun, a bit silly, I just love it.

#8: Good nicknames do seem to be few and far behind anymore. Even compared to the 70's/80's, there's really no comparison.

I mean:

The Mad Hungarian
Scuzz
Charlie Hustle
Oil Can
The Wizard of Oz
Nails
The Human Rain Delay
Space Man
Wild Thing


Esp. when they utterly nail said player's personality or style.

I think it's the shift from the written word to the spoken word as the means of communication. When speaking or describing someone it's too easy to just use "he" or "him" but in written form that sticks out a bit more so you need something different.

I am afraid I don't get the Votto reference


He is Canadian. From Wikipedia:

In Flanders Fields" is a war poem in the form of a rondeau, written during the First World War by Canadian physician Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae. He was inspired to write it on May 3, 1915, after presiding over the funeral of friend and fellow soldier Lieutenant Alexis Helmer, who died in the Second Battle of Ypres. According to legend, fellow soldiers retrieved the poem after McCrae, initially dissatisfied with his work, discarded it. "In Flanders Fields" was first published on December 8 of that year in the London magazine Punch.

It is one of the most quoted poems from the war. As a result of its immediate popularity, parts of the poem were used in efforts and appeals to recruit soldiers and raise money selling war bonds. Its references to the red poppies that grew over the graves of fallen soldiers resulted in the remembrance poppy becoming one of the world's most recognized memorial symbols for soldiers who have died in conflict. The poem and poppy are prominent Remembrance Day symbols throughout the Commonwealth of Nations, particularly in Canada, where "In Flanders Fields" is one of the nation's best-known literary works. The poem is also widely known in the United States, where it is associated with Veterans Day and Memorial Day.


It is just another way in which Votto is a bit different than all the other players...

edit: I mean, I guess he could be JVot or whatever.

Brandon Dixon "B Dix", which is kind of funny
Jesse Winker "Wink" I wonder how long it took him to think of that one.

Gosh, I was thinking it had to be a Simpsons reference. Though with 639 episodes, I'm sure they probably worked it in there at some point.

I don't think it would be allowed, but somebody should try to get an endorsement deal out of this. I'm looking at you, Dee "ZIMA IS BACK" Gordon and "KHRISTAL PEPSI" Davis.

Votto took some flak earlier this year for criticizing Canadian baseball. He apologized, but I suspect that choosing a Canadian war poem is a way to get back his Northern bona fides.

What's the best decade for nicknames? The 1920's?

Ruth had more good nicknames than the entire 2018 NL. You had "Big Train", "The Iron Horse", "The Gray Eagle", "Big/Little Poison", "Rajah", "The Fordham Flash", "The Mechanical Man", "The Georgia Peach".
   29. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: August 10, 2018 at 11:33 AM (#5724665)

"Nah. Let's go have some Molsons at Gord's hoase."

That only rhymes in its original Canadian.

Speaking of nicknames, I recently noticed that "The Texas Con Man" was recently added to Clemens' nickname list on bbref. I never took that to be a very flattering nickname, and am surprised it's there as many other players' derogatory nicknames never seem to make it. What's next, "Moo" Vaughn, Dustin "Petunia" Pedroia, or John "F'n" Mabry?
   32. Batman Posted: August 10, 2018 at 12:23 PM (#5724696)

You're in for a long day if you're planning on posting the nickname of everyone who's ever played MLB in alphabetical order. But I'll help out: Hank Aaron was "Hammerin' Hank." Tommie Aaron was "Not Hank," I would assume.

Improving Cubs nicknames...

Willson "Willy" Contreras should become something like the "L Train"... the CTA marketing potential is there.... or Contrary Spels.

Anthony "Tony" or "Rizz" Rizzo is just terrible. An easy, better route - given his role as essentially team leader and the Italian angle would be something like The Godfather... or when he's really hitting well - the Godfella.

Javier "El Mago" Baez is perfectly well and fine. Something less direct but still alluding the root might be The Mindfreaker.

Addison "Addy" Russell is usual lazy stuff. Slightly less lazy options would be obvious ones like Clark or, in another CTA marketing opportunity, The Blue Fine.

Kris "Sparkles"? "Silk"? or KB Bryant... If they haven't gone the way of Toys R Us -- Kaybee Poise.

Kyle "Schwarbird" Schwarber is wonderful as is. So wonderful, I'm not even going to list the bb-ref ones and not the obvious best choice is missing.

Albert "Tico" Almora... Everything's a Can of Corn With Prince Albert. Or how about LaLa.

Jason "J-Hey Kid" Heyward is fine as is. Too often, at least at the plate, he's been the Wayward Jason.

Ian "Happy" Happ is a rare instance where lazy works fine. Lengthen it to Happy Dance... or maybe Happenstance, if he developed some of Javy's right place/right time qualities.

Ben "Zorilla" Zobrist is fine. I like the Zobi-wan Kenobi BBREF also lists.

Tommy "3 AM" La Stella... I don't get. Tommy Two Last Names. The Streetcar.

Jose "Q" Quintana... boring. Even something almost as easy as The Mighty Quin would be better.

Kyle "The Professor" Hendricks is perfectly fine. Even stolen from Maddux.

Jon Lester... The Old Glove?

Carl "Stringbean Slinger" Edwards is fine.

"In Flanders Fields" is a war poem in the form of a rondeau

Which isn't a nickname in any sense. Seems like this has moved into "Things I Like" or "You Should Know" territory, with "This Space For Rent" possibly coming soon. Boxbutter's use of emojis to represent his actual name also fails as a nickname. It's anarchy out there.
   36. Ziggy's screen name Posted: August 10, 2018 at 12:58 PM (#5724716)
I nominate the 1870s as the best nickname decade, if only for Bob "Death to Flying Things" Ferguson.

He's the best know Death to Flying Things. But if you type 'Death to Flying Things' into BREF you actually get three hits. There's ol' Bob, but then there's also Jack "Death to Flying Things" Chapman. He was an undistinguished outfielder who played from 1874 to 1876. I wonder who has the claim to priority on that nickname? Bob broke in at the beginning - 1871 - so there's a good chance it's him. But I don't really know.

And the third "Death to Flying Things" is (apparently) Franklin Gutierrez. Who I don't think I've ever heard called "Death to Flying Things" and anyway clearly doesn't have priority on the name.
   37. Zonk was SHOCKED by #6! Posted: August 10, 2018 at 01:06 PM (#5724719)
I've always thought that Dick "Dr Strangeglove" Stuart had the best nickname ever...

Scuzz

Of all the nicknames I'm acquainted with, Ross "Scuzz" Grimsley's surely has the best back story. Wiki's reference to his "liberal grooming habits" only hints at the real reason for his sobriquet.

A few weeks ago I saw a picture of Williams for the first time ever. Not sure why I'd never looked, I'd certainly heard of him, but don't remember ever seeing a photo of him. Anyway...holy crap that couldn't be more accurate. I always figured he had a small neck or whatever but this...this is just remarkable. Honestly if I didn't know he was a real player I'd have assumed it was a photo of a batboy or something.
   42. Steve Parris, Je t'aime Posted: August 10, 2018 at 01:45 PM (#5724744)
The 1890s has my favorite - Arlie "The Freshest Man On Earth" Latham. He played with some other good ones, like Tony "The Apollo Of The Box" Mullane, Ice Box Chamberlain, and the Old Hoss himself. Dummy Hoy wasn't so nice, though.
   43. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: August 10, 2018 at 01:47 PM (#5724745)
Ohtani didn't choose "Showtime" himself, did he?
He didn't, but his name lends itself to that. Also, his teammates got the stadium sound people to change Ohtani's walk-up music to Li'l Wayne's "Showtime" in his first AB a few games ago. Ohtani homered in that AB, and now he says he's keeping it.

Could have worked with the "Great Mancini" from the Robert Duvall movie, the Great Santini or Henry Mancini, the conductor -"Pink Panther" or "Moon River"

   47. Jose is an Absurd Force of Nature Posted: August 10, 2018 at 02:28 PM (#5724771)
I would say with the proliferation of cable TV and more and more (now every) game being broadcast. Late 80sish? Until then the game story in a newspaper was the primary way most people found out about the game.

Trey "Boomer" Mancini of the Orioles

Shouldn't that be "Boom-Boom" if they're riffing on the boxer?

"Boomer" is David Wells.

Edit: and while fact-checking myself, I realized I never knew how great a career Wells had. 239-157, 54 WAR, 22 WAA.

That's like inner circle HoVG.
   49. Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Griffin (Vlad) Posted: August 10, 2018 at 02:47 PM (#5724786)
A little explanation about David Freese's, if anyone was curious:

David Freese decided on “Davehuman” because, well, Freese already is a nice nickname. A few years ago, Freese bought a boxer and named the pup Bob. His buddy, also named Bob, would watch Bob the dog while Freese was away. Then, Bob the human got a dog and named it Dave. When the four are together, one must be species-specific about Bobs and Daves.

“It’s funny to, like, five people,” Freese said, grinning. -Stephen J. Nesbitt @ the P-G


Among the others on the Pirates, I also like Ivan Nova ("SUPER NOVA") and Richard Rodriguez ("PERRO FLACO" - skinny dog), and I think it's a shame they wouldn't let Chad Kuhl do "KUHL WHIP" like he wanted.

it's like that in a majority of his Topps cards, too

If you eliminate cruelty, you eliminate a lot of great nickname potential.

How is no one nicknamed "Wiff" in this era of rampant strikeouts? Chris Davis or Joey Gallo should have this one.

Dylan Bundy should be "Idaho" or "Tater" b/c of how many HRs he gives up. Tyler Chatwood should be "The Walking Man"
   53. Perry Posted: August 10, 2018 at 03:07 PM (#5724811)
I don't have it here to check, but I remember in one of the Historical Abstracts Bill James wrote about the characteristics of nicknames in different decades and illustrated it with a funny bit about what Graig (Puff) Nettles's nickname would have been had he played earlier. I can't remember many but it was something like "California Graig" in the 1910s and "The Leaping Octopus" for the 1890s. For the 1930s, when James said nicknames got rough, he figured Nettles would have been known as "Flatnose."

well, there was Swish Nicholson, but that was Bill from the 1940's instead of Dave from the 1960's--it would fit the latter much better

Egyptian Healy was one of my faves (19th C). He was from Cairo, IL. (pronounced Kay-row for those unfamiliar). Seeing Ice Box Chamberlin noted upthread reminded me of a team from the AA in the 1880s/90s which was nicknamed the IceWagon Gang. This was to mock their slow footedness, or lack of stolen bases.

When I was a kid, probably about 11 or 12 (so 1981/1982) I got a book called "High and Inside." It was this little orange paperback that had the history of (as I recall) every nickname and slang term in baseball. I'm sure it wasn't that comprehensive but man did I devour that book.

And the third "Death to Flying Things" is (apparently) Franklin Gutierrez. Who I don't think I've ever heard called "Death to Flying Things" and anyway clearly doesn't have priority on the name.


Mariners broadcaster Dave Niehaus constantly called Gutierrez by that nickname when he made an outstanding catch (and yes, he explained it came via Bob Ferguson). It was a major part of Niehaus's persona in Seattle - it's even referenced on Niehaus' wiki page.
