I would assume that it is short for benjapage, which is his handle.

Benjapage signs all of his posts with a "b".

Here ya go:

Benjapage wrote:cobb once stepped in freshly poured asphalt and was yelled at by fred collins, a construction worker who happened to be black. cobb responded by slapping collins, knocking him to the ground, and continuing on his way. He was charged with assault and battery and found guilty.

he also beat the hell out of a man whom he mistakenly thought to be a heckling fan, claude lueker (a handicapped man) and was suspended indefinitely, a suspension that held until the rest of his team refused to play games without him.

just before the 1909 world series, he got into a fight with an elevator operator who was black. cobb slashed him, and played in the series with an arrest warrant out for him, but he evaded the warrant by slipping out through canada while the rest of the team took their regular train back to detroit. classy.

and from espn's page 2: "The best story is about a young pitcher who intentionally beaned him in his first plate appearance. Cobb took his base without saying a word. The next time he came up to bat, he dropped a bunt down the first-base line. When the pitcher went to field the ball, Cobb knocked him over, then spiked him on the chest. The pitcher was sliced open and had to leave the game."

and also from espn's page 2, specifically from cobb's relative: "On a golf course he wrapped a golf club around a fellow golfer's head. First basemen were told to watch their feet when he was coming. His drinking and shooting of guns anywhere and at anybody is why in my book, without question, he was the meanest, most psychotic, dirtiest player who has ever lived!
Blake Cobb
