Watch the Cardinals try to spell Marc Rzepczynski’s name

Apr 26, 2013, 1:18 PM EDT

Daniel Descalso and Joe Kelly have spent more than a year as Marc Rzepczynski‘s teammates, but they both had a lot of trouble trying to spell the Cardinals left-hander’s last name:

My favorite part is both Descalso and Kelly claiming that they used to be able to spell it, but have since lost the ability. By the way, I copied and pasted “Rzepczynski” for every mention in this post, so I wouldn’t screw it up.

    I spell it “Rzafbhs;fbiuski”. Always have.

      My buddy is an O’s fan and he was going on about that little punk Machado all last year, so I’d purposely mess up his name and call him Mojito. Wore my buddy down. Now, he’s all about Ribs (Adam Jones) and Mojito.

        I wanted to like mojitos. They have such a cool sounding name. “Mojito”. They SOUND delicious. Then I had one. Tasted like Scope Mouthwash. Perhaps it was just a bad job with the mint leaves? Who knows. I’ll give them a chance again this summer. Might make my own, in fact. And, FYI, from here out I shall only refer to that 3B punk who picks E5’s double down the line right out of the air as “Scope”.

        I like the O’s, but they are like the least minty-fresh dudes out there.

      • cur68 - Apr 26, 2013 at 2:26 PM

        I think they are going to win the division and it wont even be close. That WOULD be minty fresh of them.

        Ironically, my buddy was complaining the whole off-season that they were the only ones not making moves to upgrade. Last year, he was afraid to let himself hope. This year, he’s gone full on homer.

        Man, I wish this were me you were speaking of. Oh well. Next season, eh?

      • historiophiliac - Apr 26, 2013 at 2:45 PM

        Well, I can randomly assign goofy names to your guys, whenever you want.

      • cur68 - Apr 26, 2013 at 2:51 PM

        Well, I’m staking out “E5”, “The Most Interesting Hitter in the World”, & ” ‘Saki San”. The field is open aside from that.

    I just call him Marc. It’s easier to say/spell. Although spelling it with a C is tricky. He’s a shady fellow.

    LaRussa spells it M-O-T-T-E.

      You win.

    pretty sure the online consensus is scrabble

    • professormaddog31 - Apr 26, 2013 at 2:38 PM

      that’s what my buddy calls him, for sure.

    S-C-R-A-B-B-L-E. That is the only way you can spell it.
