David Price calls Giancarlo Stanton "Create a Player" which is a truly outstanding nickname

Like many baseball fans, Rays ace David Price used to play baseball video games. Like many baseball video gamers, he would create his own players. And like many player-creators, he would endow his creations with prodigious talent and strength. And, Price tweeted on Friday, there is in fact a current MLB player who resembles his beastly brainchildren:

This is brilliant: a digital-era nickname that perfectly expresses its meaning in a short, easy-to-say, well-known phrase. I really hope this catches on, and will add an interesting dimension to the first meetup between David Price and Giancarlo "Create a Player" Stanton in 2013.
