Thread: Fun with baseball names

    Fun with baseball names

    How about names that fit certain categories? (And let's not do the vulgar ones, okay? You know which ones I mean. Don't worry, Dick Pole will be in the next post anyway.)

    Starting with

    Money

    Don Money
    Norm Cash (yes, I know there's also Dave Cash and Kevin Cash but there's no real need to list multiples)
    Brad Penny
    Hunter Pence
    Curt Schilling
    Reid Nichols
    John Buck

    Spending Money

    David Price
    Chris Sale
    Oscar Gamble
    Mookie Betts

    It is. I was actually hoping for a category on body parts.

    How about a player whose name consists of 4 body parts?

    Tony Armas.

    If history tells us anything, the path to redeption for any bad baseball team is marked with a deep rotation of durable starters, a world class defense in both infield and outfield, a lineup that can generate runs in more than one way, a bullpen that won't steal defeat from the jaws of victory, and a top end catcher to hold the whole package together. These are the conditions by which victory is achieved, anything that does not accomplish these objectives is a waste of resources.
