    We need nicknames

    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!

    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)

    "The Runt" for Revere
    "The Magic Dragon" for Plouffe
    "The Sonic Boom" for Sano

    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.

    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.
