Campaign: "Slappy McPopup" = Juan Pierre
Unfortunately, his page at Baseball Reference is already sponsored, and in the absence of a champion like (hold your nose) T.J. Simers or some other acrid figure in the press, a nickname like Slappy isn't liable to stick. Therefore, I suggest the following to my fellow Dodger bloggers who are so inclined (and I am already writing off Jon, though he may surprise me): it's time for a Googlebomb. Greetings, Slappy McPopup... not that this is a meme that needs a lot of help.
Update: Welcome, readers from Hardball Times, and thanks to Matthew Carruth for linking here. (By the by, the name's M-c-M-i-l-l-i-n, though I'm used to misspellings by now.) I cannot claim originality here, only propagation; the owner of this trope seems to be a commenter at Dodger Thoughts, but I haven't yet been able to establish who. Funny as hell, though.
ps if i'm making no sense at all look at goodbomb.com to see what I'm talking about
