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.

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.

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