Your favorite player nickname?

Postby oukurt » Wed May 03, 2006 6:13 pm

Before my time but I always loved hearing my granddad talk about the "Say Hey" kid.
The Big Hurt isn't hurting anyone these days, but I love the nickname. Which is your favorite?

And I don't think anyone dislikes "The Splendid Splinter".

For the current guys I like Aram because it can be taken as either a shortened version of his first name or a shortened version of both his names.

Can't possibly argue with "Three Fingered" Brown...

A nod for "Pops"...

And, my favorite player growing up "Mad Dog" Bill Madlock.
