CHICAGO -- So which Chicago Cubs nickname do you like the best?
If you're in Philadelphia this week you'll be able to see the entire team wearing their new track suits with their nicknames on the back of them as Joe Maddon green lighted a "track suit road trip" and pitcher Jon Lester and strength coach Tim Buss supplied the outfits.
"We wanted to get that college basketball team look," pitcher Kyle Hendricks said. "We'll be comfortable. I know that."
Hendricks will be known as 'Karl' this week because bullpen catcher Chad Noble likes to add an "R" to names.
"He even calls my fiancé Erma instead of Emma," Hendricks said. "I don't know why."
Some nicknames are better than others and some don't even have any -- Cahill simply has 'Trevor' on the back of his.
"Guess they couldn't come up with one," he said.
The Cubs also missed a great opportunity with Tommy La Stella as Maddon has referred to him as "3 a.m." in regards to his ability to "wake up and hit anyone at 3 in the morning."
"I'm just Tommy," La Stella said. "I think these guys would give me a lot of crap if it said '3 a.m.'"
Here are a few other nicknames that were on track suits hanging in the Cubs clubhouse on Saturday morning:
Zo for Zobrist
Jhey for Jason Heyward
Addy for Addison Russell
Jor-ge for Jorge Soler
Stropy for Pedro Strop
Ronny for Hector Rondon
Szcz-URRRRR for Matt Szczur
Rizz for Anthony Rizzo
Reaper for Justin Grimm
Hammer for Jason Hammel
Dex for Dexter Fowler
KB for Kris Bryant
Fed for Tim Federowicz
Joe Maddon met with reporters wearing his track suit with 'Joey' on the back of it. All in all the Cubs are excited about the comfort and "look" they'll have on the trip.
"It's a cool idea for everyone to have their nicknames on their back," Heyward said. "It's a great idea."
