Meaningless Nicknames for Every Mariner Player

bubblegumseagerThis past weekend, I went on a road trip to Eastern Washington with my buddy, Matt, and my girlfriend, Andrea. We kept ourselves entertained by assigning non-sensical nicknames to all the current Mariners.

Most of these nicknames are completely ridiculous and have absolutely no significance. If you can find meaning in the aliases, more power to you. But in general, these are simply the products of boredom and dry heat. If any of these nicknames stick, it may signal the downfall of society. God help us all.

  1. I’m writing these down for easy reference during the rest of the games this season so when Kyle Seager is up w/ runners at the corners and laces a double I can use the appropriate #bubblegum! on twitter etc.
