    I would have said the Splendid Splinter if it weren't in the 'master list'.  Spaceman is also good.  And how about our own Rem Dawg?   Then there's Big Papi of course.  And if derogatory names count I'm fond of A-Roid and A-Fraud.

     Pedey. Pedroia's my favorite player, but Pedey is a better nickname than Pedroia is a player. And that's saying something.
