One of the coolest things that we saw today was in the Sox bullpen dugout where there were signatures on the wall above the bench of all of the pitchers since 2011 and their nickname and years with the Sox written by their autographs. From the pictures that I took, Reed was The Phenom (crossed off) and is now Pinky, Jones is Rube, Castro is El Baron, Omogrosso is Omo, Josh Kinney is The Night Fox, Sale is Slim, Purcey is Big Foot, Lindstrom is Stormy, Quintana is Q, Veal is The Real Deal, Humber is Mr. Perfect, Troncoso is Megatron, Heath is Mamba, Septimo is Larry, Sergio Santos is Prime Time, Ohman is Bull Dog, Santiago was Jersey (crossed off) and is now Turbo, Liriano is Pancho Villa and Franchise, Eric Stults is Hoosier, and Brett Myers is Redneck Express. They also were recording tally marks for "Calls to the Pen". In 2012, there were 812 calls and so far around 300 this year.
