  1. Give Pat Burrell his last chance to win a nickname. He’s more of a man than anyone here.

  2. I think he’s more of a man than everyone here.

  3. You’ve convinced me.

  4. Not with a name like ‘Pat,’ he isn’t.

  5. “I told him he needs to have longer hair,” catcher John Buck said. “When I think of Giancarlo, I think of someone with long, flowing hair, like Fabio. But if he keeps hitting homers, I’ll call him whatever he wants me to call him.”

    Giancarlo has my vote.

  6. Judging a book by a cover I see. If you were to open that book (like thousands of women before you), you would find an extremely long tale of womanizing, except the tail is in the front, not the back.

  7. Pat Burrell has had plenty of tail.

  8. Is it intentional that we can vote for as many as we like?

  9. I don’t think John Buck speaks french, so he will be unable to call him this nickname. Likely he sticks with Mike.

  10. The NotGraphs hivemind gave the nickname “Gomez’s Hamburger” to Mark Hamburger. If he was thus adjudged sufficiently “Gomez’s” by his surname alone, I feel comfortable doing the same for Patrick Burrell in the case of ‘aimait les femmes.’

    My logic is unassailable and you are weeping profusely.

  11. Well, I guess you just going to be killed then. By this:

  12. The entire top three is verrrry deserving.

  13. No Napoli? :(

  14. Derek Jeter is deserving neither of our time nor our nicknames.

    I will be rejecting the decision here, democracy, and America, be damned.

  15. Hear, hear.

  16. As a Rays fan, I am pleased Burrell appears not likely to win this. If he deserves any French nickname it is this: L’homme qui a violé une ville.

  17. I took four years of French in high school (why?????) and have no idea what that means. Translation, please. The man who……..destroyed a city?? No idea.

  18. the man who loves the ladies.

  19. I apologize if it was unclear. I used google translate to convey, “The man who raped a city.” You know, because Burrell earned 16 mil for not doing much of anything while he was here. I guess raped sort of equates to violated, thus violé.

  20. How can this not be Jeff Francoeur, the man whose nickname heretofore has been “Frenchy”?

  21. Next nickname to be named: “Sparklehorse.” Google it.

    Found that the singer and I share to same date of birth. Exciting. I personally think the band name is it a fitting nickname for a baseballist.

  22. A terrible thing has happened gentle men.

    Alex Rodriguez.

    “The Man Who Loved Women.”

    Madonna, Cameron, a centaur, himself.

    Forgive us.
