MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Cincinnati Reds David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

After Saturday’s game, I was done with the Phillies.

Then on Sunday they called and said, “We’re sorry. Look at how awesome we can play. Give us another chance.”

And like the sucker I am, I keep taking them back, even though I know they’re just going to break my heart again and again.

But how about Bryson Stott? After tying the franchise season-starting hit streak record (16 games, and he’s sitting pretty with 27 hits for the season), he needs a cool nickname on par with Willie ‘Puddin Head’ Jones. ‘Jell-O Head’ sounds like an insult. I’ve heard ‘Mousse Head’, but that might turn into ‘Moose Head’ and we might as well call him Bryson ‘Bullwinkle’ Stott or ‘Lager Head’ at that point.

What’s your recommendation for a good nickname for Stott?

On to the links,
