How about Ricky "Dad Shoes" Wysocki. Those white "sneakers" he wore with those blue slacks at the SFO had half the gallery following him around just to see when he was going to start grilling hamburgers.

In general, Ricky always looks not put together. His clothes seem like they are 2-3 sizes too big for him, but its probably just how he is most comfortable dressing and playing. Plus he is pretty lean and tall so its harder for clothes to fit him right.

Eagle and Simon don't seem to have a problem with it.

They should drop the i and just go with 'sockbomb". The extra syllable screws it up.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who dislikes Big Sexy, Sexy Beast, or any other variation of his name. Nate is great on his own.

Also, does Barsby have a nickname? If not, I vote for the Iron Leaf.

Except that the whole point of the nickname is that it is the same pronunication as the sake/beer combo shot you drink like a boilermaker at Japanese restaurants called a "Sake Bomb"

Putterpants I hate to say is pretty good

CoolDaddySlickBreeze is a constant reminder that the guy is an uncool dad for better or worse

I think Sockibomb is pretty decent actually

McBeast while low hanging fruit is fine, someone was bound to end up with a beast-based nickname what with Beast Mode and all that a couple years ago

A.J. Risley - The Risleybear? Not bad. A.J. "The Loose Cannon" Risley, also not bad.

Yeti is top tier, BigJerm and all the commentary variations it spawned is hard to argue with.
