What should Rendon's nickname be?

The Grin: no need for explanation
7 (11.7%)
El Martillo:  Spanish for "The Hammer;" earned by the comparison of his wrists and swing to Aaron's
5 (8.3%)
Tony "Two bags":  in honor of his doubles, not his once and maybe future position. sounds vaguely mobbish.
29 (48.3%)
The Hitman:  also has mob overtones
19 (31.7%)

Davey said Rendon doesn't appear to be overly powerful. wtf does that mean :?

My interpretation: Rendon doesn't look strong, but he hits the ball perfectly. I happened to look up some of the home run hitters from when I was a kid. Yes, there was Ted Kluzewski, and Harmon Killebrew was so strong that any ball that hit him landed with a dent. Willie Mays, though, was about 180 pounds. Aaron was about the same.

I think Davey has said, since last year, that Rendon's swing reminds him of Aaron.
