Fire Dan Gladden

Twin's Nicknames

Rate this Entry
There is a nice little article today on ESPN about MLB players and their nicknames. I saw Josh "The Hammer" Willingham mentioned, but did not see any other current Twins mentioned. That being said, I thought I would give it a try:

Matt "I need a night" Capps
Ryan "Just" Doumit
Ben "Don't call me Paul" Revere
Justin "Less yes" Morneau
Denard "Spic and" Span
Alex Burnett "Burn it all"

And lastly

Dan "I'll be" Gladden "he's fired"

(couldn't resist)

    While my wife tends to call Justin Morneau "Mr. Hot Pants" (in honor of her 1st base vantage point which for many years provided a view of something she liked) I like other, sometimes less considerate nicknames
    Matt "Capps Shoot"
    Joe "Chairman Mau"er
    "Save Big Money with" Denard S.
    and recently my brother has taken up the task of popularizing:
    "Country Superstar" Jamey Carroll
    (Seriously, I wouldn't be surprised to hear, "That was a classic cut from Vince Gill and now the new hit from Jamey Carroll "Mommas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Middle Relievers")

    I'll take a crack at some pitchers:
    Jason Marquis "de Sade"
    Jeff "Shades of" Gray
    Liam "Jimi" Hendriks
    Nick "Blackburn's Ghost"
    Carl "Hey!" Pavano
    Matt "Don't Give Me That" Maloney
    Alex "Carol" Burnett

    And I guess there's:
    Jamey Carroll "Burnett"
