Heard it for the first time during Lance McAlister’s show on Homer and not sure who came up with it but this is a pretty great nickname for our impressive starting rotation. Harang – Arroyo – Volquez – Owings – Cueto … HAVOC. Almost worthy of a kick-ass poster like the one Rob designed for Sam. The only problem is I’d hate to waste the effort when you never know how close we are, maybe just an Owings implosion (not that we want to see that) coupled with another Homer Bailey gem in Louisville (wouldn’t mind seeing that) away from HAVBC, which doesn’t spell out a word and therefore doesn’t quite have the same ring to it as HAVOC.

    I think the boys over at Red Reporter came up with that before we were out of spring training. Smart cookies, huh?

    If Homer comes up and replaced Owings at some point, we can just call him “Omer” to keep the acronym intact.
