    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
