3. I believe today's tabloid cover called him "The Jerk".
Not sure if it was the News or the Post. Big picture of a hand in front of a camera, headline: The Jerk, and smaller print something about Randy.

4. We used to call him the Big Eunuch.
When he was with Seattle, and they were playing the Indians.

I think the Yankees made a big mistake. He has a hell of a fastball, but the Indians had some great fastball hitters in Manny, Thome, etc.
They used to eat him alive.

He's also the ugliest person in the major leagues.

8. Hmm...
According to ESPN, Jim Thome is 1-4 versus Randy with 2 strikeouts,
Manny is 4-19 with 6 strikouts, Carlos Baerga was 12-37, Roberto Alomar is 8-40 and I can't find the numbers on Albert Belle.

5. Oh, and to answer your question
Yes, that's been his nickname as long as I can recall. At one point, he was the tallest major leaguer ever, hence the "big" unit.
