Sorry if this isnt the Right forum for this but i thought it was appropriate. I used to visit ESPN forums a lot and it used to be a lot of fun to make nicknames whenever somone posts the gamethread for the day. So in the spirit of that, post your nicknames for our players and i hope the creator for the gamethreads has fun with this
Here my random day lineup:

1) spandemonium
2) lil general (revere)
3) mauer pauer
4) willinghammer
5) The big canuk
6) Doom
7) Bulldozier
8) Plouff it's gone
9) sing me a carroll

Im sure you all can come up with better names than that!

Spandemonium is really catchy.

I'll throw a few out there. Please remember this is all in jest...

Spando Calrissian (He has a suave and smooth young Billy Dee Williams aura about him)
Brokeback Mauer (As in Injured, nothing else)
Beef Willingham (I prefer this over Hammer... it is too cliche)

Although I named a few earlier. I thought I'd finish the rest of the Starting Line-up tonight. It is guaranteed some of these will suck!:)

1. Denard Span - Spando Calrissian/The Pimp/Billy Dee
2. Ben Revere - Lil' Peeps
3. Joe Mauer - Brokeback Mauer/Joey Baseball
4. Josh Willingham - Beef Willingham
5. Justin Morneau - Risky Business (Morneau is a tough one to come up with avoiding cliche or lameness, I am using the actress Rebecca De Mornay of the movie "Risky Business" (Mornay=Morneau). This is the best I can come up with.
6. Ryan Doumit - God Doumit - although I do like "Doom"
7. Brian Dozier - "Bull Dozier" works, but I'd go with "Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz"
8. Trevor Plouffe - Babe Plouffe
9. Jamey Carroll - Tiny Tim (as in X-mas Carroll)

Good call bringing Sano into the convo, we need to have some ready for his call up. Plouffalouffagus has been a household name here lately. Not sure what it means but fun to say when he blasts one out.

That sounds like a revamped "New Kids on the Block" line-up. I can't wait till they put out there next album and tour.

I've heard Scott Baker often referred to as "Big Spot Scott", I think Diamond is a much better person for the title right now.

I don't know if this is a Good Will Hunting reference, but if it is, you sir just made my week.

It could be a Ron Coomer reference. Imagine listening to his broadcast if you weren't familiar with the players...

And by the way, Denard Span is "de Nard Dog."

In our house, # 7 has been Kid St. Paul for years. The only other "original" we have ever used almost exclusively in place of a player's name was "Zoooommmm!" for any reference to Carlos Gomez.
