Best NL Player Nicknames

Time for another list as we love creating them at FBJ. Before I get hammered, this is not inclusive and arguments can be made to add some people over others. We didn't have an exact science when creating this list, but we chose some nicknames that are iconic to the franchise and others because we thought they were funny. Please offer your favorites or ones that we may have overlooked in the comments section!
