Nickname Seeks Player: Vote on “L’homme Qui Aimait les Femmes”

The nomination process, which pairs wonderfully with an artisanal Brie, is complete. The list of names has been whittled down to 10, and one of those names is a player rumored to be retired. In this instance, however, a dispensation — a French dispensation — has been granted. The act of doing so involves a kiss on each cheek between resigned drags on a Gitanes. Now go and vote, wine-drunk functionaries …

Thank you for exercising the franchise, absurd and meaningless though it may be.

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

    “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.

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

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

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

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

    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.

      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.

        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.

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

    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.
