By Adam Rubin

Robert Carson warned teammates his mother is meeting him in Atlanta this weekend, and her nickname for him is "Pookie-Nookie." Armed with that information, teammates including Jon Rauch had a little fun, making a batting practice jersey that included the nickname rather than "CARSON." Carson wore the jersey during Tuesday's BP.
