Actually in Houston he's called "The Big Puma" more than "Fat Elvis". He obviously never embraced the latter but on numerous occasions referred to himself as "The Big Puma".

Yep, used to LOVE baseball, but the '94 strike threw a big bucket of cold water on that. And my interest level has never been the same. Bunch of greedy fools, the whole lot of 'em.

That's why they remanufactured the ball to bounce farther, lowered the pitcher's mound and had a steroid free-for-all. To get more hits and home runs to get more viewers after 1994.

There are a lot of players who have been referred to as the Cuban Missile. Alexi Ramirez, Yoenis Cespedes, even Yasiel Puig a little bit. Also, think about adding such players as Clayton "The Klaw" Kershaw, Frank "The Big Hurt" Thomas, etc.

If Dennis Boyd had been accused of juicing his nickname could have been Oil Can Roid.
