I'm watching Tucker take his hacks now. He's a good hitter for sure, but I don't know how he got that nickname.

Not sure if it is widely known or used, but his local nickname is "King Tuck."  This has replaced his longtime and previous nickname of Ted, which was due to the the similarities between his swing and that of Ted Williams.

Both sure beat other nicknames like Pee Wee, no?

Slashed .327/.398/.631 after the break, which raised what he earned in 140 games to exactly what he earned the year before in 60 games.

A big change in Pull% this year. I wonder if it helps explain his strong second half?
