    Why does everyone get a dumb nickname but Freeman?

    Freddie doesn't need a nickname. He's the real deal.

    Good old fashion racism.

    No one seems to be clever enough to think of a nickname for him. And he's been so consistently good and white that no one has been able to really irrationally complain about him, thus not netting him a nickname.

    I got a buddy that calls him Beavis. Just because he looks like a Beavis to him.

    Honestly, Freddie's boring. Really good, of course, but good in that steady, professional, unspectacular way. By the end of the year he's going to be between .290-.300, between 20 and 25 home runs and around 100 RBI as a good-but-not-great defensive first baseman. He doesn't run fast, he doesn't hit massive home runs. He just hits his line drives to left-center. That's not a recipe for a good nickname.

    Besides, "Freddie" is one of those first names that's mildly goofy enough that a nickname isn't necessary.

    Nothing says, "We've given up" quite as well as "leadoff hitter Grady Sizemore" in the year 2014.

    So far it seems like our pitchers like to bounce them up to CB. I swear I've seen a ton of balls in the dirt to him

    Technically, no. It's just censorship.

    This game has all the signs of one of Harang's six-inning, 112-pitch, three-strikeout, three-walk, seven-hit, two-run Russ Ortiz special starts.

    There is no filter on his name. That was intentional.

    Yeah, his starts aren't pretty but he gets the job done.

    It's pouring here in Lithonia! I wonder how long before it reaches the stadium.
