How this ‘Tsunami’ got started

Mark Newman:

Introducing our newest Player blog: Cardinals right-hander Carlos Martinez. He welcomes you with an introductory story about how he got the nickname “Tsunami.” Take a look and leave him questions and comments!

Originally posted on The Wave of Perseverance:

Welcome to my new blog. The nickname ‘Tsunami’ is a story in itself, so to make a long story short, here it is.
