Nickname Needs Recycling by David G. Temple May 29, 2013 I came across this passage while reading the book The Fix is In. We’ve created nicknames for players. We’ve created nicknames for former players. But every now and then, a previously-used nickname needs to be reapplied. “Whiskey Face” is one such nickname. So, fair NotGraphs readers, spout off in the comments as to which baseballing person– former or current — is most deserving of this nickname of nicknames.
