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%)

I'll take a couple of defensive lapses over 0-4 any day

I stared at this post for close to a minute in awe that a baseball fan would rather see a player commit multiple errors in a single game than go 0-4. 

I understand your point but I think you are taking halfsmoke’s post a little too literally.

Instead of “lapses,” replace it with "less-than-stellar-Espi-like plays."

No one values defense more than I do but Espi was an automatic out in the line-up every single time up, every single game.  A rally killer, and pitchers knew it.

I would take Lombo or “Hit Man” Tony any day of the week over a current Espinosa.

I think that was the point.
