Just read some of the Urban chat, and I was reminded of something that drives me nuts.
I hate, hate, HATE when Urban calls Matt Cain "Shotgun". IMHO it is a completely retarded nickname with NONE relevance. The great thing about baseball nicknames is that they relate to something. "The Freak" or "The Franchise" for Timmy. "Kung Fu Panda", cause that's what Pablo looks like. "Huff Daddy" plays off his name. "FBAL" is self-explanatory.
In high-school, Matt Cain's nickname was "Big Sugar." I LOVE that for him. Can we please, through a phone call on the weekend or in a chat, lobby Urban to stop with the "Shotgun" and just have everybody call him "Big Sugar"? Please? Do I have to be the one who does this? Cause I have no problem if nobody else wants to step up.
