Brad “Sergio Millar” Miller

This one may have changed since he’s taken down the Twitter account that was associated with the name. Still, it’s a curious nickname, and possibly more of an Alias.

"I’m still quite smitten that Brad Miller’s nickname is Sergio Millar. It’s ridiculous in the most baseball way possible. One day Miller’s college teammates started calling him Sergio and that was that. Now he’s Sergio. So there you go. It’s so much better than B-Rod or an awkward inclusion of the suffix “-y” to the end of either of his names."

Who doesn’t want to be a spy? A nickname like Sergio Millar makes me wonder about whether or not Miller has multiple passports sitting at home with a cashbox full of different currencies and a handgun. It’s kind of badass when you think about it, even if it did go by the wayside.
