Giancarlo Cruz-Michael Stanton will now be known by his legal first name instead of half of his middle name. That’s pronounced like “shoncarlo” in case you were wondering.
But this quote was more telling:
“Everything,’’ he said with a smile. “Cruz. Giancarlo, Mike, Mikey, Big Mike, Big Foot, Bam-bam. Man-Child. I respond to 25 different names.’’
It’s true, we’re often known by many names. Especially those of us with strange names.
Here are the names that I have been known by:
Eno Kama Sarris
Bubbly Bubbly Eno
Eno the Beano
Enis the Penis
With a phone full of pictures of pitchers' fingers, strange beers, and his two toddler sons, Eno Sarris can be found at the ballpark or a brewery most days. Read him here, writing about the A's or Giants at The Athletic, or about beer at October. Follow him on Twitter @enosarris if you can handle the sandwiches and inanity.
