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%)

Guys have been plunked for a lot less. You know, staring too long at a pitcher, dropping the bat the wrong way after crushing a HR, looking at a HR too long, trotting around the bases too slow (or too fast)....

IMO those things are meant to show a pitcher up.  When you stare him down it is a challenge to that pitcher.  When you flip your bat exuberantly you're saying I got the best of you.  Wen you smile it means you're having fun.  It isn't directed directly at the pitcher like these other things are. 

Who knows maybe he will get plunked this week but I doubt it.
