Nickname Seeks Player: White Sangria


If you heard rumors of a recent gathering of FanGraphs writers in Arizona, I’m here to confirm those rumors. And when FanGraphs writers come to a town, they run that town. This is not to say they run in that town, as physical activity is not usually on the itinerary. But they do live life to the fullest, if that only entails going to Spring Training games and restaurants.

One such restaurant, the very fancy Chelsea’s Kitchen, specialized in a certain drink called white sangria. This is fulfilling to two ways:

  1. It is extremely delicious.
  2. It gives all of us a chance to pair a nickname with a player.

So, I turn to you, fair NotGraphs readers. What player deserves the nickname White Sangria?

If you were to put up a picture of white sangria next to a picture of Andre Eithier, I probably couldn’t correctly identify Ethier more than 6 out of 10 times.


The guy just looks like a White Sangria.


My second choice after Mat Latos.
