Why is Scrap Iron Phil Garner named Scrappy? All I could find on Wikipedia was [sic] "nicknamed Scrap Iron due to his gritty style of play."

But why, specifically, Scrap Iron? He's from Jeff City, MO - so it's not like he's from old miner stock, or anything.

Anyone got some answers for me? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?!?

According to my source (someone that played with him for 5 seasons) at the office, it's because "that was his style of play, a real tough 'iron' player". Apparently there's no other significance. Sorry.
