The crew over at NESN is pushing to come up with a new nickname for Adrian Gonzalez. Things like “El Jefe” or “El Machete” are pretty cool, in the tradition of El Guapo. I was thinking more like “Yankee Bitch-Slapper” or “He Who Makes Pinstripes Cry” but I’m not sure those would catch on. So, I figured if there was a need for some creativity, what better place than the SG comments section. Have at it, folks…
Plus, in ten years when Gonzalez retires as a Red Sock, a future John Opdike (Red or Denton) can write "Hub Fans Bid Cid Adieu"
Welcome to Boston "El Cid".
I love the simplicity of AGon, but i always called alex gonzalex that when he couldnt hit the broad side of a watermelon with the sox, so it sort of has a negative connotation in my mind.
how bout we just combine crawford and gonzalez into "Speedy Gonzalez"
I think "Yankee Bitch-Slapper" pretty much covered it. But if it was up for my call--I'd throw in "Green Monster Masher"
And while he's gonna mash the Monstah---that is a poor choice...so Yankee Bitch-Slapper it is!
