Pitcher!! Got some tips!?
Pitchers who throw hard have been named after trains for a long time, going back at least to Walter Johnson (The Big Train) and Christy Mathewson (Bix Six, the nickname of a railroad engine), and continuing through Nolan Ryan (Von Ryan's Express, actually a movie about a train, but so it goes).
There actually are D-Trains on some subway systems, including New York's (A-Trains also, which is where the Ellington song comes from), and there aren't any W-Trains that I know of, so . . . well, there you go.

Well, he throws hard, and his name starts with the letter "D." And once upon a time, there was a very popular song called "Take the 'A' Train" by Duke Ellington. It was long ago, but every once in a while, some older sports writer will drag it out to tag on some player. I think a couple years ago, Anthony Thomas, the running back who was with the Bears then was being called "The 'A' Train."
Because it's his knickname,I don't think there's a real reason..someone just thought it'd be cute to call him that.the train part is just adapted because he's a great pitcher..and a train is,i guess you can say unstoppable.
