What’s in a name?

Posted on: August 10th, 2018 by Ron Kaplan

One of MLB’s newer attempts to separate fans from their money is this “Player’s Weekend” thing in which the athletes wear jerseys with their nicknames. Some are inventive, others are just lazy. Here are the one’s we’re interested in:

  • Richard Bleier: Dickie-B
  • Ryan Braun: Ocho (I assume because he wears number 8)
  • Alex Bregman: A-Breg
  • Max Fried: Maximus
  • Ian Kinsler: Boostie (I like that one; old school)
  • Joc Pederson: King
  • Kevin Pillar: KP (eye roll)
  • Robert Stock: Crecth
  • Danny Valencia: Slugger (eye roll redux)
