Name That Cuban
















As mentioned here earlier, we in fact did sign Adeiny Hechavarria.  I guess nobody would believe me if I told you that LastRow500's got a phone call from a Blue Jays representative a few hours prior to the news breaking inquiring about the details of signing foreign players.....but that's exactly what happened.  And that is why we posted it as fact and not speculation.

In any event, due to my inability to pronounce our new shortstop's name (ah-THEY-nee eh-CHA-ba-ree-ah) I have decided to throw out some ideas for the mandatory nickname he will no doubt be given.

This list is in no particular order:
  • Not Chapman
  • Plan B
  • Marco Who?
  • The Next Great Yankee Shortstop
  • Jobu
  • Voodoo
  • Hex
  • Paco
  • Chico
  • Taco
  • Cohiba
  • Cube
  • Defector
  • Capital "D"
  • Alien
  • No Papers
  • No English
  • Stateless
  • Puddle Jumper
  • Inflatable Raft
  • Refugee
  • Pinko
  • Mojito
  • Scarface
  • Miami Vice
  • All Inclusive
  • Hepatitis "H" or Hep "H"
  • Preparation "H" or Prep "H"
  • Cu-Tip
  • Nacho Libre
  • Fidel
  • Castro
  • Embargo
  • Bay Of Pigs
  • Cuban Missile Crisis
  • Juan Valdez
  • Parador En Corto
  • Mucho Peso
  • Hombre
  • Itchy Cubes
  • Shark Bait
  • Sombrero
  • Fries Supreme
  • Rum Balls
  • Esse
  • El Nino
  • Inigo Montoya
  • Houdini
  • Elian Gonzalez
  • Monty Christo #6
  • Rico Suave
  • Pepe
  • Tito
  • Loco
  • Ricky Ricardo
  • Dirty Sanchez
  • Gitmo
  • Swine Flu
  • Lada
  • Havana Club
  • Don't Drink The Water
  • Comrade
  • Draft Dodger
  • Steve
You can put either La, El or Senor in front of any of these and it works.  Feel free to submit your own!

My top five so far are:
  1. Gitmo
  2. Shark Bait
  3. El Hombre
  4. Jobu
  5. Hex

  3. JUBB,

    That right there sir is a line I just have to refuse to cross. I find your comments both rude and offensive.

    Totally joking. Good one. Lotta hype.
