It seems that the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Dave O’Brien reads HardballTalk:
The Bravos and their faithful have a bonafide superstar on their hands
in the young Heymaker, J-Hey, Joltin’ Jason, the kid too big for one
I first suggested “Heymaker” as a nickname for the young Mr. Heyward yesterday, passing along the idea from Twitter follower Brad Hill. I’m assuming Brad came up with it, because I haven’t seen it anywhere else. I am quite pleased, then, to see it used in the Braves’ paper of record.
Dave: go with it! It’s the best one of the three you name because it’s not a ripoff of a clearly superior player and won’t thus be an albatross in the slight, slight chance Heyward, you know, fails to become the next Willie Mays or Joe DiMaggio.
