So I joined a new world the other day and look at the first names that some of my players have:
Rabbit, Storm, Bono, Mandy, Posieden, Bingo, & Bing.
Anyone have anything stranger than that?
12/6/2006 8:32 AM
I have the following first names on my two franchises:
Buster, Kid, Tuck, Spike, Brutus, Bonk, Doc, Stuffy, Bump, Spud, Mac, Rock, Skip, Yogi, Jumbo, Hootie (2 of them!), & Crash.
I also had an Alex Rodriguez on one of my teams, but he retired.
And I had two guys named Todd Brooks pitching together in a tandem in AA. One was black and -handed, the other was white and right-handed.

I've got a Hootie, too. Also, Nash, Hamish, Scooter, Iago, several Juniors, York, Apollo, and Stretch.
I also have a Terry Fox (no running speed), and a Dan Patrick (talks too much).
12/6/2006 8:52 AM
I've got Slash, Timo, Amp, Trace, and Flip. I also have Aubrey, Hanley, Sterling, Nigel, and Emil.

Another team in Griffey has two – count 'em – two players on the big league squad named Dweezil. I wonder if either one of them has a guitar that wants to kill anyone's mama?

Got a guy in Low A playing CF - Bum Cannon (actually a pretty good arm but can't catch a cold and a below average hitter - so bye bye at end of yr 2)

In the developer chat the other day, didn't Admin mention something about the possibility of owners being able to add names to the database as a reward for making the playoffs?
12/6/2006 10:25 AM
i have seen a few guys named Hulk.
12/6/2006 11:05 AM
I have a Hulk Little on one of my rosters.

I like the players WIS named in honor of Ricky Martin, Che-Bang.
12/6/2006 11:12 AM
I've got a decent prospect named Achilles Kipling. And a career minor leaguer w/ a first name of MacBeth.

Yeah, but only scout, agent, or coach names - not players.
