I know that this is not one of the priorities of the White Sox faithful with such a fun season at hand, but...

I heard my friend the other day, one of the few Sox fans I talk baseball with, and he referred to Hermanson as "The Herminator". As soon as I heard that I laughed at how catchy and appropriate it is for Hermanson's role. Think about it..he is a closer, he has a tough guy attitude, it works. I have been trying to sneak it into conversations and these message boards because that would be an AWESOME nickname for our closer. Spread the word! Any thoughts?

The Herminator is good, but I'll call him Funky Face.

MJH came up with this because he is 25% Native American: Chief Get 3 Outs.

Yeah, he's a giant moron who was also the greatest clutch hitter I've never heard of.

Isn't that the name of a WGN sportscaster?

Freddy Garcia's nickname in Seattle was "Chief."

I just call him "Hermie." A poster at Soxtalk made this image for me after my sign in San Diego.

Dirt.

I had a friend named Dustin, but he went by Dusty. All of his friends called him Dirt.

If you look at the front cover of Sports Weekly dated yesterday, 6-29-05, he's on the cover. The headline says "Dusting off the hitters". On the thumb of his glove it says "Herm Dogg" in white script.

I think that's pretty cool. Maybe he nicknamed himself!

I was calling him Dustin Diamond Hermanson early in the year. AKA Screech.
