Jay Bruce is The Deal

The internet is a fickle place.

As of this posting, our request for a new nickname for superstud Jay Bruce has been our most popular entry to date, snagging over 3,000 views. Of those, the post garnered 42 comments (at least eight of those came from me or OMDQ) and about 12 proposed nicknames. We narrowed that down to five finalists and put up a poll, which has picked up…. 9 votes in three days. The returns be diminishing, and rapidly.

So, we’re calling it.

Fellow blogger TheNaturalMevs from Diamond Hoggers wins the Revised & Edited Baseball Field Guide for his inspired choice “The Deal”. We’re all convinced that Jay is the realest deal we’re going to see this season, so we can’t wait to see him in the majors.

Congratulations, Mevs! Thanks to everyone who participated. We’ll figure out a way to do this again sometime soon.

Now get out there and take in a little baseball with your Memorial Day festivities!
