Joakim Soria Needs a New Nickname: Royals closer Joakim Soria, known to many as the ‘Mexicutioner’, suggested in a tweet yesterday that a change in his nickname might be in order due to the violence taking place in Mexico. “It is sad when you see your country like that,” Soria said, “and that nickname is a negative to the kids in Mexico. There’s too much violence. It’s really bad.” The replacement name is a no-brainer, right? Right. J-Sor it is. [Kansas City Star]
