I was reading the A's official site when I came across this
Mt. Everidge making a name for himself.
Did this possibly come from here?
I did think of that nickname on July 28th, but I can't say if anyone else used it in print prior to that. If no one can prove otherwise, I just may have to take the credit for that particular one Mr. Urban.
I have heard of a rumor that someone is doing a revamp of AN terms " time to update ANcillary terms?" and want to see what the accepted nickname should be for him. Feel free to throw out some new nicknames for the other rookies and see if we can get some consensus before the next update.
I have looked over the nicknames used for Everidge and tried to get most of them in this poll- There are a lot of good nicknames so I grouped a few together.
