In part of its ongoing quest to “make baseball fun again,” as Bryce Harper would say, Major League Baseball is holding “Players Weekend” from August 25-27. During that time, players of all 30 teams will wear nicknames on their nameplates in place of their regular names. Even the Yankees, who have never ever put names on jerseys, are participating.

And although more than a few players lamely decided to forgo nicknames, some of them came up with pretty clever monikers.

There was Chase “Silver Fox” Utley.

Travis “Lil D” d’Arnaud.

Felipe “Nightmare” Rivero.

Michael “Jus Blaze” Blazek.

Josh “PTBNL” Phegley, who finally gives Oakland A’s fans a jersey they can buy without worrying about having to throw it away later.

“Dirty Craig” Kimbrel.

Aaron “A-a-ron” Altherr, with the Key & Peele reference.

But the undisputed best Players Weekend jersey belongs to Mariners third baseman (and noted very good player!) Kyle Seager, whose nickname is a nod to his younger brother.

As for Corey Seager?

He’ll just wear “Seager.
