I don't know if this has been posted yet, but Bacon is officially Gordon Beckham's nickname, as noted by the guys at B-R.com

Well done. Well done. :clap:

Easily.

I'm going to go ahead and attribute Gordon's massive sophomore slump to this horrendous nickname.

What's the alternative, Gordo? That's just stupid.

Bacon has it's flaws, but I love it. Besides, lots of guys have strange nicknames.

Bacon is a greasy, nasty, fattening food that I despise. So naturally I never cared for the nickname.

But if he likes it, I guess that's all that matters. But DOES he like it?

Is there a need for an alternative?

We can call him Turkey Bacon then, maybe?

The nickname is part of the "Over-hype" on this kid.

And it's lame.

Basically it's a way of making fun of how another person speaks the English language (Ozzie).

Why do I have a feeling Ozzie wouldn't really give two craps that the nickname resulted from his butchering of the English language?

Dis keeeed Bacon!

Ozzie doesn't like his Bacon fried
Beckham sent to Charlotte to fatten up, improve PAs

It was a lot cuter when his batting average was 100 points higher.

Even then, I didn't like it.
