A Very Serious Discussion About Baseball Nicknames

This post refers to grantland.com

Adam Moerder:

Nicknames are a lost art. You’d think that in an age of myriad user names and social media handles, our nicknames would’ve evolved, too. Instead, we get monikers a baby could come up with: “A-Rod,” “Tulo,” “Han-Ram,” “CarGo,” and so on. I’d rather root for professional bowlers.

Apparently Moerder reads this website, since I just talked about this. I am not a huge fun of his specific suggestions, but at least someone is trying.
