Peter Alonso changes to Pete, and adds more torque to our collective boners, then Peter Tork dies? Yeahhhhhhh right.


(Shitface would have said something like that)

This change has got to automatically add 10 pts to his batting average. Similar to the effect of a player wearing eye black.

Funny!

Pete Hill and Pete Alexander are MLB HoFers.

Aside from Rose....sheet.... Peter Gammons might be the next guy in, in about 2060.

Golf, Peter Jacobsen and Ooseterhuis had nice careers, but no majors. Jacobsen is still a TV analyst and very good.

Not so much now, but "Peter" was a nickname for your junk, maybe that is why it was avoided in the clubhouse.

As far as Alonso...well, "Scooter" was taken...

“It’s good to be on a first-name basis like that, it’s more informal. I just think I am very approachable and I think I am a nice guy, so anyone can just call me ‘Pete.’ If anyone calls me ‘Peter,’ it’s just like, ‘All right, you can relax a little bit.’ ”
What the actual fuck does this even mean?

Technically, "Peter" is his given name, so to him it sounds more formal that the nickname "Pete."

He can call himself "Patty" for all I care if he hits like that.

Hopefully the dropped catch was first-game-with-big-leaguers jitters.

Mike Conforto
John Lagares
Bobby Gsellman

Those two are just Anglicizing.

As in:

The Saint Frank Giants
The Saint Dick Dads.
The The Angels Angels of Anaheim.
