For one weekend, Major League Baseball is allowing players to wear nicknames on the back of their jerseys. This raises the question:

What nicknames could the Cardinals use?

Well, that is what we are going to discuss today. To help aid in this process, I have split them up into four categories.

Shortened Names

  1. Adam Wainwright - Waino
  2. Yadier Molina - Yadi
  3. Matt Carpenter - Carp
  4. Dexter Fowler - Dex
  5. Trevor Rosenthal - Rosey
  6. Sam Tuivailala - Tui

The Adjectives

  1. Dexter Fowler - Sexy Dexy
  2. Kolten Wong - Molten Kolten

The Obvious

  1. Seung Hwan Oh - The Final Boss
  2. Seung Hwan Oh - Stone Buddha
  3. Carlos Martínez - Tsunamy

Getting Creative

  1. Carlos Martínez - El Gallo
  2. Lance Lynn - Sir Lance-a-lot
  3. Adam Wainwright - Uncle Charlie
  4. Mike Leake - Mr. Steal-Your- I am sorry, no, I cannot make this joke.
