I forgot about Wonderful Terrific.

Coco Crisp and Milton Bradley are two of the best ever. Razor Shines was a good one too. Throw in Rick Short and consider him lucky he never got an alternate nickname.

I almost forgot Old Hoss Radbourn. BTW he owns the single season record for wins.
"I do not think baseball of today is any better than it was 30 years ago... I still think Radbourne is the greatest of the pitchers." John Sullivan 1914-Old athletes never change.

As a kid I always got a kick out the Royals having both Frank White (who is black) and Bud Black (who is white). Then again I am easily amused.

Interesting that it took till the second page for this gem. I have a few of his minor league cards. My all-time favorite.
