Nickname The Phillie: Rudy Seanez

The Phillies have some fantastic nicknames. There’s The Bat (Pat Burrell), Hollywood (Cole Hamels), Lights Out (Brad Lidge), Chooch (Carlos Ruiz) and of course, the Flyin’ Hawaiian (Shane Victorino). But not everyone has a nickname, and we need to help.

An off-hand conversation about Chad Durbin brought upon the nickname “Dim the Lights,” which I think is a worthy moniker for the man. That’s why I think we here at the Nation need to do more of the same. This week I’m opening a feature called “Nickname the Phillie,” where you guys can determine the nickname of select Phils.

For the final installment of the series we’re going to Rudy Seanez. The veteran reliever was picked up off the bargain bin and has done a nice job from the front end of the pen. He is into mixed martial arts, gives great quotes and seems to be a generally cool guy. Currently he’s ailing a bit, but says he’s OK to pitch before the All-Star break. Here’s a guy who’s been around a long time and really deserves a nickname. Go to it (by the way, his middle name is Caballero).
