Brian= Poolboy, after the incident at the Playboy mansion I found it fitting... He didn't seem to like it when I told him what I called him when I ran into him in Toronto, but Mack and BMAC thought it was funny

Oh and I guarantee you if Mr. Roboto sees this thread he'll offer up what Detroit fans call Crede.. Hilarious!

God Damn ___ ___! Historically, this often took the form of God Damn Jose Valentin! Lately, it's been God Damn Rob Mackowiak! or God Damn ___ ___, why can't you lay down a mother ****ing bunt! Now I can bring back the old classic God Damn Sandy Alomar, stop setting up 4 inches off the corner when the ump's obviously not going to call that pitch!

Run fat ass! comes up on occasion (especially yesterday).

GiDPK has been used frequently in the game threads over the past several years.
Valentin had a similar moniker: JosE6.

Lip oughta know this. :tongue: It's asked continually because no one answers the question without a smart-ass response. Someone would rather post a rolly-eyed emoticon than typing a simple sentence.

Is it an inside joke? I'd like to hear it if it is, because using a language filter for a nickname is sort of extreme. No?

I must have missed the story on McCarthy. Why is he called Fingernails on a Blackboard?

one of the coolest featrues of this site is that if you try typing in brandon mccarthy's nickname, "Fingernails on a blackboard" the server automatically changes it to "fingernails on a blackboard".

some of mods felt that the nickname for brandon mccarthy that begins with the first letter of his first name and the sound made by the first two letters of his last name, or, "Fingernails on a blackboard" was unoriginal and lame sounding, hence, they went on a campaign to ban it from being used. to them, hearing the nickname "Fingernails on a blackboard" was the equivilant of hearing fingernails on a blackboard.

have fun figuring out where i actually typed in his nickname, Fingernails on a blackboard.

the mods don't like the sound of mccarthy's common nickname, b__mac, for whatever reason. so, unless you modify it while typing it, it gets filtered and is replaced as "Fingernails on a blackboard". that's why he is constantly referred to as Fingernails on a blackboard.

My buddy calls Cotts "Mr. Baseball Man" because damnit, if you ever made a movie about a baseball player you'd want a guy who looks like Cotts to play the lead.

I call AJ "Zerpinsky" from time to time.

Iguchi is "Tadahootie." Mackowiak is "straight gangsta."

His career numbers vs. Detroit aren't bad but they aren't exactly outstanding IMO. Maybe it's the perception that he kills them all the time? Kinda like "Cy" Mays in Minnesota a few years back?

My nickname for Joe Crede

" THE BIG SHOW"

This cat is not to be denied this year. Looking at all stats and comparing him with all other 3rd basemen in BOTH leagues, he's clearly the best "ALL-AROUND" third baseman. Only Troy Glaus has better power numbers and only Eric Chavez has better defensive numbers. Crede is Unbefreakin'lievable!

This cat is not to be denied this year. Looking at all stats and comparing him with all other 3rd basemen in BOTH leagues, he's clearly the best "ALL-AROUND" third baseman. Only Troy Glaus has better power numbers and only Eric Chavez has better defensive numbers. Crede is Unbefreakin'lievable!

And IIRC Chavez's defensive numbers aren't THAT far ahead of satan's.

I don't know but the Satan nickname is growing on me. "For the fourth time tonight Maggs grounds out to Satan and this ballgame is over"

I'll just list the more unusual nicknames I sometimes use:

Dye - Main
Uribe - Pot Smoker (he looks like a guy who used to work with me who was always high on the plants, so that's my little inside joke)
Pierzynski - Magnet, Trouble (as in "Here Comes Trouble!")
Cotts - Lucas (to me, he looks like Scott Lucas from Local H)

I like it - I'm always searching for a nickname for AJ - he just doesn't have as many.

I've heard people call Pods, Scottie the Body or Scottie the Hottie......i wouldn't ever do it, but it's out there!
