Players' Nicknames

Since the latest sensation out of the minor leagues has already earned himself a legitimate nickname (The Big Sadowski), I thought it'd be time to, once again, review our favorite (or least favorite) nicknames of all time, Giants or otherwise.

I must admit an affinity for Tim the Enchanter, even if other nicknames overcame it once he made it 'big'.

Least favorite: 'Crash'. It's become more like a default title for a longtime minor leaguer. I love the reference, but seeing it used for any longtimer in the minors (Dallimore, McClain, etc.), it becomes a bit old. At least with McClain, who was the active minor league leader in home runs, it was a bit more appropriate than others.
