Mets Nicknames Thread [UPDATED]

Update: The nicknames list has been updated based on everyone's suggestions. Enjoy!

See below for an incomplete list of nicknames for Mets big-league players and a handful of minor leaguers. It could use some sprucing up; only a few nicknames are particularly memorable. Drop suggestions in the comments. The list will be updated as necessary. And be thankful Fernando "F-Mart" Martinez is out of the organization, so we no longer have to hear the worst nickname in baseball on a regular basis.
