Nickname The Phillie: Finalists

Two weeks ago I started asking you to give nicknames to five Phillies who really didn’t have any real nicknames. Some of the responses were hilarious (Ryan “Can’t hit a fucking off-speed pitch” Howard; “The Brown Sombrero”), some were very good, some … ehh … (You could’ve humored me with more Seanez material!)

But I narrowed the choices down to at least four for each player (I made it five for Werth, since I couldn’t leave out “Johnny Wacko,” I added some regular stand-bys for Howard, and I took out Happ, who was victim of a send-down during the nicknaming process), so now it’s up to you to vote for your favorites.

In the response to this post list your top choice from the finalists of each player. You can copy and paste this to fill in your choices:

Jayson Werth:
Kyle Kendrick:
Ryan Howard:
Rudy Seanez:

And now, the finalists.

Jayson Werth
The Patient
Speed Stick
Jay Bird
Johnny Wacko

Kyle Kendrick
The Kid
Krazy K
The Sink

Ryan Howard
Baby Huey
Giant Power
The Big Man

Rudy Seanez
Black Belt
Cinderblock Head
The Chief

And just to put my two cents in, I’m uncertain with Werth; for Kendrick, The Kid (it seems as if that’s his name already); for Howard, I don’t know how I feel about giving Howard a nickname solely on his strikeouts when he is an amazing run producer; for Seanez, ColdStone.
