You guys are not the three amigos; you’re the Big Three. End of conversation.
In other Big Three nickname news, The Bronx Block is holding a naming contest. So if you don’t like the Big Three, go win the DVDs and books they’re giving away.
hasn’t the “big three” been used already? as good as hudson, mulder, and zito were for a few years, i have higher hopes for our guys (especially considering the current performance of previous “big three”). while the “three amigos” is a little silly and “generation trey” is downright stupid, i still think we can do better. don’t take the easy way out and use lame or recycled nicknames, you guys are better than that.
Lame nickname?!?! We’ve been calling them the Big Three for months. We even sold a whole bunch of t-shirts based on that one. Lame nickname, indeed.
Ben: I am loathe to criticize anything you guys do because I love this blog and I’m here 50 times a day. However, I will say that Adam has a point that the nickname “The Big Three” was used previously in regards to the A’s pitchers (and quite a lot). It’s not “lame”, but it isn’t original either. It wouldn’t be a terribly bad idea to come up with something else that hasn’t yet been used.
ben, i am sorry, but you misunderstood my use of “lame”. “lame” was referring to the “three amigos”, which it clearly is. i used the word “recycled” to refer to the “big three”, which it also clearly is.
by the way, i love the nickname “the big three”, and i own a “save the big three” t-shirt which i wear proudly, but don’t our guys deserve a little originality? we might as well just call them hudson-mulder-zito v2.0.
Oooh! In that case, all is forgiven. I had forgotten about the Zito/Mulder/Hudson nickname. I hope the Yanks’ Big Three manage to last a bit longer than those guys.
I still prefer “The Holy Trinity” but probably just because it appeals to my essentially blasphemous nature.
In reality though, I don’t really care if they call themselves “Larry, Mo and Curly” if they pitch us into the playoffs.
Nineteen more days…
Besides the three Amigos just sounds corny
All I can say is that “Three Amigos” is far better than the stupid “Generation Trey” that Michael Kay gave them.
That idiot George King started calling them “Generation Trey” as well.
Talk about stupid.
actually, joel sherman came up with “generation trey”, and kay stole it because he erroneously reads the ny post and not river ave. blues.
how about calling them like the “K-Force” or something.. that sounds badass.. too bad CMW can’t join in on that.. he’s more of a “GDPower”.. good god i’m so lame
Haha. GDPower and Associates.
Rather, GBPower and Associates
Ha! Now that’s funny.
[...] Stop fooling yourself, Phil – Ben K. – River Ave. Blues [...]
GBPower and Associates is AMAZING! Since Wanger is still the #1 for a time that has to be the name for those 4 guys.
yep gotta love that one!! let’s go with that!!!
The Original Trilogy.
Phil is A New Hope.
Joba is The Empire Strikes Back.
IPK is Return of the Jedi.
We are the Evil Empire. And, our “Big Three” (Phil, Joba, IPK) predates Boston’s “Big Three” (Garnett, Pierce, Allen). Hence, we’re the “original” trilogy. Plus, you gotta love a nickname that spawns three more nicknames.
