The Cardinals' "Players Weekend" jerseys were unveiled today.

Jersey closeup
Nickname preview

The team was kind of unimaginative on nicknames.

Matt Carpenter - CARP
Adam Wainwright - WAINO
Tommy Pham - T. PHAM
Dexter Fowler - DEX
Carlos Martinez - TSUNAMI
Kolten Wong - WONGER
Seung-hwan Oh - his name in Korean
Randal Grichuk - GRICH
Michael Wacha - WACH
Yadier Molina - YADI
Alex Reyes - A. REY
Jose Martinez - CAFE
Stephen Piscotty - MOMO
Trevor Rosenthal - BIG T
Mike Leake - SPARKY

Paul DeJong tried to be "Paulie D" but apparently there is a DJ that has the name trademarked so he couldn't.

Piscotty's, though he probably won't be wearing it, I've heard is a tribute to his Mom.

Really disappointed that Wacha did not go with FOZZIE.

My favorite has to be Kyle Seager in Seattle, who will have "Corey's brother" on his jersey.
@JonDobleRBD - Redbird Dugout

My apologies .............. but I was offended when I read several articles about this earlier today. This has to be the dumbest 'promotion' ever.

I guess if you do something in the name of charity you can get away with just about anything. Turning MLB into a circus. Ridiculous.

Definitely not a fan of this either. This particular money grab won't be working on me.

Rosenthal placed on the 10-day disabled list with right posterior elbow irritation, Luke Weaver recalled.

Hope nothing serious with TR. Hopefully rest will do the trick.
