You know you do it already in your head ... even as you groan at the nicknames ESPN's Chris Berman slaps on players from Cy Young to Michael Young, you think you could do better. Maybe even at a Hall of Fame level.

Okay, then, here's a complete list of Cooperstown inductees. Can you do better than a pedestrian Eddie "Walk the" Plank? Or an erudite Hank Aaron "on the side of caution"? Eddie "Tom" Collins is too easy, Bill "I'm feeling kind of ver" Klem"ft" is too much of a reach. Tris Speaker "of the House"? Joe Tinker "Bell" or Mel "There" Ott "to be a Law"?

You get the idea. Who's up next?
