Seeing as how Marc Rzepczynski's(notes) last name looks like an unlucky grab from the tile bag, it makes sense that his Toronto Blue Jays teammates have taken to calling him "Scrabble."

The nickname surely ranks as one of the best in baseball, but leave it to Sarah Green of Ump Bump to point out a few reasons it's unpossible to see 'Rzepczynski' played on the board.

In other bad news, the 24-year-old lefty saw his bid to join the Jays' rotation derailed when a line drive broke his finger during a game on Tuesday. He'll miss up to six weeks.
