Baseball has always been a game that has been filled with colorful nicknames. Many of the current ones, according to Fantasy Baseball Index seem to be given to the DH position with Big Papi, Pronk, and the Big Hurt. I learned of one tonight that has been endowed upon an exciting up and coming young utility player in the Cubs organization.

Ryan Theriot has been nicknamed "The Riot" because his last name, "Theriot" is actually spelled "The Riot" when split apart. Isn't that a Riot?

I heard someone in my money league refer to him as "Terry-Oh" so I like to call him "Dance Fever" in honor of Danny Terrio of Solid Gold fame (lste 70s show for you youngins).

I remember Soul Train....it used to come on as cartoons went off on Saturday Mornings. As a kid I always loved to see the animation of the train.....Later playing ball, I seem to remember being called Soul Train...but more often it was Nite Train or The Night Train of Pain. I would come to bat and my teammates would start pulling the train whistle.
