Manny... but ManRam is funnier

Don't think that's a nickname. 8-o

I've always like Pay-Rod too. :*)

And of course, The Rocket. B-)

Kinda sad, but there really aren't many guys out there currently with actual nicknames (not abbreviations or stupid Bermanisms) and most of those are from the players who were dominate in the 90s.

The Big Unit
The Rocket
Mad Dog
Big Hurt
Pronk
Kid


From the past my favorites are

The Sultan of Swat
Wahoo Sam
The Splendid Splinter
The Georgia Peach
Double X
And it doesn't get much better than when your nickname is simply "The Man".
