    I just call him Dusty...
    He is great, but he is A) too small to be compared to Papi
    and B) not enough constant power.

      Yeah, but that's the reason it would be funny. It's like calling a huge guy "little john". lol.

        Only players with a last name something like "Rhodes" can be called "Dusty", that's a well established baseball tradition.
        I guess the "Big Hurt" (Frank Thomas) and "Little Hurt" (Craig Grebeck) combo kind of worked with the White Sox, but I also feel that calling a non-Hispanic guy "Papi" doesn't quite make it. By the time Grebeck joined the Bosox, he had morphed into "Little Talent".
        I actually like "Smudge" better than "Hellborn"...the player as well as the nickname. I admit that the latter nickname is pretty stupid, but it tickled me after a few beers at the park.
