Postby AquaMan2342 » Wed May 26, 2010 12:36 am

Best: "Say Hey Kid"
"J-Hey Kid"
Mike "Snacks" Napoli
Pudge


Worst: Nelson Cruz (NC-17....dumb!)
Franklin Gutierrez (Death to Flying Things.....this is the stupidest IMO....why not just nickname him "Great Defensive Centerfielder"?)

I always found A-Rod not quite right or fitting.
He is too much of a douche to have a pornstar name. :-t

EDIT: Randy Johnson on the other hand = perfect fit. :-b :-D

Worst: First letter of first name + First syllable of last name
