MLB Players' Weekend is back for the end of August and some of the guys came up with some great nicknames to put on the back of their jerseys.
MLB Players' Weekend is back once again.
This year all the teams will be rocking either black or white jerseys, so some of the creativity normally associated with the weekend has been reduced. However, the nicknames on the back of the uniforms are just as good as ever.
So let's do a team-by-team breakdown of the best nickname on each squad.
Ty Buttrey: "(PEACH, TREE EMOJIS)"
Butt. Tree. It's pure gold.
Jake Marisnick: "BIG FUDGE"
If this doesn't make you chuckle a bit then we just aren't built the same.
Dustin Garneau: "DRAGO"
Trent Thornton: "BUTTERS"
Dallas Keuchel: "BIG D"
Bold move Dallas Keuchel. I respect it.
Lorenzo Cain: "THREE KID$"
It might be too accurate.
Kolten Wong: "THEWONGONE808"
I like to think this was his AOL screenname.
Javier Baez: "EL MAGO"
I mean, this just sounds like a ton of fun to say out loud over and over again.
Kristopher Negron: "NEGRON JAMES"
Brandon Crawford: "DJ BC RAW"
Does this mean Crawford is in charge of clubhouse music for the weekend?
Shane Bieber: "NOT JUSTIN"
You'd be surprised at just who needs this clarification.
Anthony Bass: "T-FISH"
Retweet when you get it.
Garrett Cooper: "COOPALOOP"
I mostly love this one because it makes me think of Dr. J dunking on Michael Cooper.
Jeff McNeil: "FLYING SQUIRREL"
If you don't laugh at that you just don't have a soul. But also, shoutout to Aaron Altherr aka "A-A-RON."
Max Scherzer: "BROWN EYE"
It's always great when somebody can laugh at themselves.
Richie Martin: "RICH BOY"
Austin Hedges: "(TREE, HOG EMOJIS)"
I'd like to think this is somehow related to having to save his children from 30-50 feral hogs.
Andrew Knapp: "KNAPP TIME"
I expect to see a pillow behind home plate if Knapp sees time over Players Weekend.
Colin Moran: "REDBEARD"
Get it? Cause they're the Pirates.
Hunter Pence: "¯_(ツ)_/¯"
I know the feeling Hunter. But also, Logan Forsythe with "LOGIE BEAR" is too good to not be mentioned.
Tyler Glasnow: "BABY GIRAFFE"
When you're 6'8", it makes sense.
Joey Votto: "WHO"
Sam Travis: "DR. CHILL"
Think he'll bring a lab coat and a name tag?
Jon Gray: "(WOLF EMOJI)"
Sometimes you just don't need words.
Scott Barlow: "SCOOTS McGOOTS"
This doesn't need any explanation.
Blaine Hardy: "HARDY BOY"
As long as Jim Ross is on the call and Hardy plans on bringing a ladder to the arena.
Nelson Cruz: "BOOMSTICK"
Solid name for somebody with nearly 400 home runs.
Evan Marshall: "FORGETTING SARAH"
Bonus points if he fights Jason Segal or Russell Brand.
Zack Britton: "WITH A K"
Sometimes you need to just explain to people how to spell your name.
