Ummmm…one of these things is not like the other. Brian McCann amidst all these turds? WTF?

In McCann’s case, I think we have to assume it means the good connotation of “bad.” At least McCann’s deserving of a nickname, some of these guys really aren’t.

I nominated McCann because of his LASIK-induced vision problems and subsequent eyewear fiasco. As in, “Damn, Jesus, that was a bad miracle you performed on Brian McCann. You’re lucky his wOBA didn’t suffer in the long-run.”

McCann’s got a nickname: “Heap”.

None of the Braves will confirm exactly where the name came from (some announcers pretend it’s because of his body composition, but this is known to be false), but we have some rumors. Legend has it that it involves a Braves road game, a hotel, and feces.

I’ll admit:

If this becomes a regular feature, I’m going to have a hard time not voting for Wily Mo Pena for every nickname.

Every time I see his name, I want to actually pronounce it as “Wily Mo,” as in the adjective, “wily.”

If it was FAT MIRACLE then Bartolo Colon would be a lock….

Angl Villalona needs to be added. Read yesterday’s comments.

I’m having a hard time seeing this fit for anyone. Personally, I would vote for Brian Wilson’s beard.

None of these are fantastic, really. I love Wily Mo, but I think it fits Colon better in the context of this season, although his start tonight didn’t help the “miracle” part. I gotta say though, it fits Brian Wilson pretty well a la the beard.

I’d like to submit into evidence:

“Bad Bartolo”. We’re already halfway there with Colon.

When I first read bad miracle I read it as Bad Mucle and went to vote for Willy Mo without even knowing if he was there yet.
