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%)

0-5 tonight and 1-12, BB, 3 K in the Philadelphia series.  Before his average falls off and the panic monkeys turn on him let's remember that he's young, the league is seeing him for the first time and may finally be making adjustments to him, and a player that young is just so unlikely to sustain an average above .300.  If I'm wrong and he continues hitting like a beast, great.  But I expect we may be seeing the beginning of his regression to where he should be at this point.  He will now have to learn to make adjustments just like Bryce did last year.  To be completely clear I have very little doubt he will be a good hitter in the long run but very rare is the hitter who doesn't have some rough patches in their first season in the bigs.
