Nice, I forgot about some of these.  My favorite was always Bert Byleven.  Also while I never cared for him, Bad Moon Rison was perfect for Andre.

When I went to look this up, due to my memory getting bad, I came across this berman nicknames list.  Might have a few more on there for your list here.

One Berman used back in the 90's.  In a game against the Tigers, Indians 2B Carlos Baerga hit 3 home runs.

Berman's description: "One if by land, two if by sea, Three if" Baerga.

 

Would have been better if the game had been in Boston, but still...
