Unfortunately "Easy Lover" did not catch on

Doug Melvin has his own nickname for Ryan Braun:

Doug Melvin, the Brewers' general manager, isn't the Delta-house, gotta-give-everybody-a-nickname type. But he has come up with one for Braun. "I don't use it around here (with the team) but I do in the front office," Melvin said. "I call him the 'Braun-tosaurus.' That's a nickname I put on him early. Because he's going to put up monster numbers."

The article also notes that Braun drives a 2000 Honda Accord. This is a popular choice among Rookies of the Year and Frito Lay workers!
