Darren Oliver’s New Nickname is “Buzz Oliver”

I just so happened to be perusing through Baseball Think Factory’s 2012 ZIPS Projections for the Toronto Blue Jays, and stumbled across what could be Darren Oliver’s new moniker: Buzz.

This is the first I’ve ever heard of this, but I’m a big fan of the “Buzz Oliver” nickname. It makes him sound like a drill sergeant or something.

Another great video courtesy of Yahoo’s Beyond the Bases. This week, It’s Brett Lawrie and Darren Oliver’s childhood - reflecting on toys, video games, movies, shows, etc.

A lot is being made of Mariano Rivera and Todd Helton’s swan song season this year, but Darren Oliver is also enjoying the final year of his career. Yahoo catches up with Oliver’s teammates to reflect on his amazing career.
