So what I am advocating in this FanPost is that we begin calling any time a pitcher strikes out the side in an inning a 'Kimbrel'. We already call GIDP a 'Vidro' and I think Kimbrel strikes out the side even more often than Vidro hit into double plays.
While I haven't looked up exactly how many times Kimbrel has come into a game and struck out the side, it sure feels like it is often enough to warrant such a namesake. We could even have a variation for when someone strikes out the side on only 9 pitches.
What do you guys think? Any other nicknames for plays or events in a game which we could give to other players?
Should striking out the side be referred to as a 'Kimbrel'?
