Met Nicknames

There is a growing collection, out there in the media or at least here on AA. More so than past Met teams, Dr. K and The Franchise excepted. There is:

Captain America -- DW From the World Baseball Classic.

Captain Fastball -- Parnell

The Dark Knight -- Matt Harvey, via Sports Illustrated

Thor -- Syndergaard. Hopefully he'll put the hammer down some time this year.

Captain Kirk -- I won't try to spell it.

The Irish Hammer -- Murphy.

and more recently

The Silent Assassin -- Wheeler

Muscles -- Tejada

Found Money -- Mejia. Hopefully he'll stick long enough to earn some for himself.

Grandpa -- Granderson

any others?

Hopefully a few more will do something to earn an obvious tag this year.
