Well, if he is going to be on our team we need a nickname for him. Here are the choices. For those who don't understand the last two, they are from a bad translation of a Japanese article posted in the "Love Connection" thread in Whats the Score?

Gooch.


Monosylabbic, easy to yell, reminiscent of a real word, can be turned into a verb: "to Gooch" or "Gooched" i.e. "He Gooched him out of that hit" or "man, that guy got Gooched!"

So we have:

1. Pods
2. Gooch
3. Big Frank
4. Paul-eee
5. Crazy Carl
6. A-Row
7. Dye?
8. Uribe?
9. Crede?

lol...my family nickname (mostly me and my dad) is "Chooch" derived from Chuchman. It is a pretty cool nickname for sports and awesome to hear people yell CHOOOOOOOOCH, so I second Gooch. :smile:

And close enough to a Racial slur that I think we'll have to nix this one... The last thing White Sox fans need is to have Legue Highlights replayed over the Chants of 16 thousand strong chanting Gooch at someone of Asian Decent!

Man, you must be watching a lot of MASH re-runs... that's such an archaic slur that no one under 50 (or no one who hadn't watched a lot of MASH) would ever recognize it!

In the alternative... how about Gucci?

You need a catcher in that lineup. AJ pierzynski in the 8 or nine hole and one of Everett, Dye, Rowand, Podsednik or Frank needs to sit.

Teki the PC meister has amended it to Goochi, which I am down with. Just as memorable, and you can still use the "Gooch" verb tense.

Didn't mean to ruin the fun... But I think with the fan base that a move like this will likely build, that we should avoid any possible confusion.

Fans in Japan sometimes shout "Ganbatte!" to their players. It's roughly translated as "Go for it! / Do your best! / Persevere!"

Nah, I think it sounds more like a slang for a female's private area.

But it is the best sounding nickname so far. :D:

I'm guessing this has already been pointed out to you and others in your family, but "chooch" is Italian-American slang for dummy or idiot.

Make sure they're laughing with you and not at you.

I say go with Da Gooch. In honor of the bully that beat up Arnold Drummond on Diff'rent Strokes.

7. Dye?
8. Uribe?
9. Crede?

Hawk calls Uribe "Jose Uribe" sometimes but I'm not sure why...I think he just forgot his name was Juan. Crede can be Krede. The only shortcoming of that one is that you can't hear the difference, it has to be written (tailor-made for WSIers!)
As for Dye...I have no idea.

Depending on the time of immigration, 'Russian Polish' could mean anything from the aforementioned to Lithuanian, Ukrainian, German, or a number of other ethic groups as Poland didn't exist as a nation-state until after the First World War. You can thank the Russian empire for its numerous partitions of the current geographic Poland.

If he becomes a "cancer" in the clubhouse, he could be Red Dye No. 2.

(isn't that the die that causes cancer? e.g. don't eat the red M&M's in the 80s?)

You can thank the Russian empire for its numerous partitions of the current geographic Poland.

Russia was 1/3 of the Polish partition party. Don't forget Ze Germans and the Austrian-Hungarian Empire.

I also prefer to call the Nazi Soviet Ribbentrop Molotov treaty the fourth partition of Poland. We allowed parts of that treaty to remain in effect until the end of the cold war (i.e. Soviet control of Poland and the Baltics)


My vote is still "Tad Ghostal"
