Philadelphia Phillies:  'Vanimal' and the 20 Coolest Nicknames in Team History
bapple2286.wordpress.com

There’s nothing like a perfect nickname.  Some of the best ones can  replace a player’s actual name.  I mean how many people call “Cookie” Rojas, Octavio Victor?

 

But is “Cookie” a cool nickname?  And what criteria should be used to determine if a nickname passes the “cool” test?  That’s the question for this list.  After much thought, I decided that perhaps I was not the best judge of ‘cool’ so I turned off my Barry Manilow 8-track and went in search of my teenage son, the coolest person I know.  I read out some nicknames and the ones he judged “awesome,” “nasty” or my favorite, “sick” made the list.

 

So here they are:  the 20 sickest, I mean coolest, nicknames in Phillies history.  And if you don’t agree?  Don’t blame me.  Do what I did.  Ask the nearest teenager.
