They list 193 ABs for 07...and 189 as a left-handed batter? the big dog was batting righty? when?
also, i have to say, adrian needs a new nickname. I'm a complete hater of nicknames that are just variations on someone's name...A-gon, Kouz, etc. weak. no imagination. come on, where's the cool nicknames? are they just keeping them from us cuz adrian doesn't want us to know in the clubhouse his name is "Muffin" or something?
So, who thinks what? what's a good nickname for a current Pad? What about Mike Cameron? He deserves a nick, and Cammy is effin taken. No amount of nosecandy will erase the burned-in image in my head of Ken slowly falling backwards, completely under the control of gravity, and gunning a ball on a line across the diamond to beat his guy by a tenth of a step. but man! "M-Cam" would be the lamest nickname of all time.
One guy who SCREAMS for a nickname is Peavy. I call him the Bama Cannon when no one is listening. I don't even know if he's from alabama, but it got stuck in my head somewhere. I just checked, yes, he is. Now i trust the voices in my head more. Look out.
Robo-Khalil is pretty cool, but it still has his damn name in it.
I realize that this is not a super-researched diary, but hey, it's late. This is how i talk to my TV.
Where's our Spaceman? Shoeless? Catfish? Poopikins? Baseball nicknames that leap to mind are about as cool as a shampoo cocktail, which is not cool at all my friend.
By the way, "K-man" or "Kouz your daddy" are not good nicknames, but K-daddy might. Or might not.
