Big League Stew:Add your 2 cents on a nik for Zack

Finding a nickname for Zack has gone national


Sorry if repost


By 'Duk

Zack Greinke(notes) seems to have it all these days: A league-best 6-0 record, a 0.40 ERA, a 0.84 WHIP, two complete game shutouts and, oh yeah, a piping-hot fiancee who's getting another round of attention with the emergence of her man's newfound domination.

But the one thing he doesn't have, as some have noted, is a baseball nickname worthy of his talents.

Mr. Johnny Rathbun, a loyal Stewie from the mean streets of Lawrence, Kansas, is among those looking to slap a moniker on the Royals ace.

Here's what he wrote to me:

"My buddies and I have already been to a few games at the New K (it's friggin awesome) and we are just as pumped as everyone else around here about how nasty Greinke has been. On the local broadcast of the game they've thrown out a few options for nicknames for Zack like 'Zack Attack' and 'Greink-a-nator' and a few other lame, unoriginal monikers.

"My buddies and I prefer 'Stinky Greinke' (or 'Steinke Greinke' if you prefer the creative spelling) because of how absolutely filthy the guy is. You can smell the STANK of his pitches as batters whiff on that Bugs Bunny curve. WE however don't have an international audience, and YOU do. So if you have a slow day sometime let's try to get the 'Stinky Greinke' train a-rollin."


While I can't endorse Johnny's suggestion in good conscience the "Stinky" nickname is reserved for bums, clowns and cats I can send out an APB for nickname nominations.

Rany of Rany on The Royals fame has repeatedly suggested 'The Baseball Jonah,' a biblical nod to Greinke's meandering path to superstardom. I'm kind of partial to "King K," since it references both his strikeout prowess and the team he plays for. Meanwhile, Jeff Passan contends that Greinke is too good to need a nickname, noting that "Pedro never had one."

So in the tradition of Slam Mag's "What's My Name" feature, let's hear some possible alternate names for Greinke. Winners get a dip in the Kauffman Stadium fountains.

I don't think he needs one but I heard a decent one for him on the radio the other day (on Chris and Cowboy's show) - Zack the Ripper it was.
All I could think of was: Finster Baby. Because Zack sort of looks like a kid to me, but he's got that killer arm. The Finster Baby was a character on the old Bugs Bunny that was actually a grown-up criminal and carried a gun, but he dressed like a baby in disguise and rode in a little carriage.

He doesn't really need one but if I had to choose I'd go with Zack Nasty.

I like Zach the Ripper. That's a good one.

Finster Baby is good, but I think it's too esoteric.

I don't think he needs a nickname, but if he had one, I like Planet Z.

I saw the sign for greink-a-nator at the game the other night and thought wth why didn't you just go with Zack-a-nator?

Not that I care for either one just seemed like it was easier said plus KC would have The Mexicutioner and the Zackanator.
