Twitter Tuesday: The Mexicutioner

I was all prepared to welcome back "Twitter Tuesday" with an obvious attempt to get some traffic by talking about how Major Leaguers are more enamored with talking about the Carmelo Anthony trade than Spring Training.

But then Kansas City Royals closer Joakim Soria had to go and blow that post out the water by tweeting this:

how about if we change my nickname to something positive? in support to mexico to stop all the violence !!!

What?  Really?!?
There are plenty of bad nicknames out there (most of them coming from ESPN's Chris Berman), and Joakim..."The Mexicutioner" isn't one of them.  Matter of fact, I'd go out on a limb and call it one of the game's best.
I get it...Soria is wanting to be "positive" and stop the violence.  But c'mon, enter games to "Welcome to the Jungle" and Guns 'N Roses aren't really honor students.
Viva el Mexicutioner!
