This morning Paul emailed the UmpBump writers with a new candidate for best nickname in baseball.
It seems the Blue Jays’ Marc Rzepczynski is nicknamed “Scrabble.”
Of course, it wasn’t long before Scrabble-nazi Sarah chimed in with her two cents:
The irony is that a) proper nouns aren’t allowed, b) there’s only one Z tile in Scrabble so you couldn’t make this name, and c) it’s way too long to actually make it. But, if you could, it would be worth 40 points before you even factored in any bonuses.
The moral of the story: Don’t play Scrabble with Sarah. She will bury you in a sea of triple-word scores and mock your limited vocabulary. She will make you cry.
