    I’ve got one for Martin Prado. When he was a rookie, the official stat keeper misspelled his name, calling him “Martin Pardo.” For several weeks, Martin Prado was hitting about .280, but Martin Pardo was hitting like .333. I have called him Martin Pardo ever since.

    Omar Infante is basically Pardo from last year, so I have been calling him Prado Jr, Martin Jr, Little Martin, Pardo Jr, etc.

    Moyland’s nickname is Moylo – saw it on an ajc.com page quoting one of his teammates

    Alex Gonzales is called SeaBass because he never smiles (according to a teammate from one of his former teams)

    add’l detail: Kevin Millar on the Marlins coined the SeaBass nickname for AGonzales because of his perpetually sullen game face
