    Twins Nick Names

    What are your favorite nick names for Twins players? I find myself making up and using terrible nick names I hear from friends all the time. Some of my favorites are below:

    Plouffe = The French Pancake, Babe-Plouffe
    Chris Parmalee = C-Parms or Parmesian Cheesey
    Joe Mauer = Baby Jesus, Mr 2%
    Kurt Suzuki = Kurt's Motorcycle Shop
    Jason Kubel = Koooooooooooobs
    Ricky Nolasco = Ricky Tikki Tembo-no Sa Rembo-Chari Bar Ruchi-pip Perp Pembo
    Colabello = The Italian Hitman
    Pinto = Beans

    And so on. What are some of your favorites that you use with your friends or around the house?

    Around the house:
    Dozier = "the doooooj" (the j is pronounced like a "zh" sound)

    Joe Mauer's always changes but it usually has something to do with bilateral leg weakness

    I seem to go with a musical theme:

    Honky Tonkin
    No Limit Dozier
    MC Hammer, Hammer Time, Please Hammer Don't Hurt 'Em
    Chick Correa
    Perkins - Pony Boy
    Mauer - James Loney (ok, not strictly a musical theme)
    He's a No Limit Dozier, I thought I told ya!

    One I was hearing by a certain nameless someone, referring to Plouffe's defense (mainly) last season: Ploofda
