Players weekend will feature player nicknames on the jerseys

MLB: St. Louis Cardinals at Kansas City Royals Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

It was announced that during Players’ Week, Major League Baseball players will be allowed to put nicknames on the back of their jerseys. As previously discussed, the Cardinals have a crisis in this regard: they suffer from a severe lack of great nicknames. Craig Edwards discussed this Wednesday as well as the nicknames that the players chose.

But this is Tsunamy Thursday. So let’s analyze Carlos Martínez’ choice:

We cannot fault the man for going with his long-time nickname over a nickname given to him by some nerds on the Internet, despite how glorious the name is. A few have made the argument that one is not allowed to pick his or her nickname - it must be bestowed on them. But then, once the nickname is bestowed and the person meets new people, is that person not allowed to inform the new acquaintances of the existing nickname or must the person allow the new acquaintances to bestow a new nickname? Where is the line?

I say once you are given a nickname it is yours to do with as you please. And Carlos wants to wear his on his back. With the exception of Seung Hwan Oh’s jersey, this is probably the best one.
