Baseball Surnacronyms

Over at, Rob Neyer drops in with something he—or, rather, Bill James—calls baseball surnacronyms. The idea is simple: turn a baseball player's last name into an acronym which describes him. Some examples from Rob:

Chone Figgins: Flexible Infielder, Good Glove, Is Not Slow

Craig Biggio: Began In Gear, Grew Into Outfielder

Jason Giambi: Grew In Artificial Manner By Injection

What can you come up with? I'll add the best ones to this post.
