    We’d be lucky to have just Romine in our system.

    Mack Daddy really can’t be the best nickname we can come up with, can it?

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

      Well damn tsjc, why don’t you come up wif sumfin?

      • Tom Zig

        1997 called they want their nickname back

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        Deangelo Mack’s porn name is Deangelo Mack.

        His name is so sweet, he needs no nickname.

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      It’s better than Mack the Knife or some tired shit like that.

    • pat

      Mack, Return of the

      • pat

        boooooo, I’m tired can’t think good.

      • Jacob

        I have a cheesy enough sense of humor to vote for that. Makes me feel like I need to take a hard look in the mirror.

  • Accent Shallow

    Anyone other than Higgy who’s worth looking at on the SI Yankees?

    I haven’t heard of half these guys.

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      This guy here is dead.

      • Bryan

        Cross him off then.

    i hate it when Jesus doesn’t play.

  • Reggie C.

    The weather looks to turn midweek (hopefully). That’s when the guys at Staten Island hopefully can turn it on. There are good college hitters on that squad + 2nd years like ‘Shio and Arodys that should make that team fun to watch on most nights.

  • Brandon

    I cant stand when Montero doesnt play. It just doesnt seem like a DOTF without a Montero hit.

    The article says that Charleston sends 5 representatives. I count 4, not including the 2 coaches. Dan Brewer, Melky Mesa, Pat Venditte(who should have been in Tampa a long time ago), and Hector Noesi. Oh and the 2 coaches, if anyone is wondering, are Torre Tyson and Jeff Ware.

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      A Montero hit and an Angelini error a day keeps the doctor away.

  • Mark

    Looking forward to getting to my first Staten Island game on Saturday night, but just annoyed the Yanks and Mets are playing Saturday night as well. Looking forward to seeing Higashioka play. It is worth it to drive past all the chop shops to see the baby bombers.

  • Mike bk

    Lane at NoMaas says that Adam Warren the 4th round pick from UNC has signed and should be in SI by the weekend.

    • V

      Awesome.

  • FL Yank

    I vote for either “Mack Attack”, “Mack Truck”, or “Big Mack w/ Cheese.”

    • http://eemack.blogspot.com Jackson

      As someone with the same last name I can tell you that we’ve been called all of these growing up, and we don’t like any of them.

  • ManBearPig

    Two things:

    1. The kid is good enough to get drafted – so he probably already has a nickname.

    2. The kid just got drafted, shouldn’t he have to earn his nickname?

      2. The kid just got drafted, shouldn’t he have to earn his nickname?

      (thinks of the idiotic quasi-debates about how IPK hadn’t accomplished enough to “earn” a nickname that was comprised of his own freaking initials and shudders)

  • Clemson Rob

    Hungry Hungry Humberto much better nickname than Dirty Sanchez

  • pete

    d’angelos is now serving big macks???
