  1. My team name last year in all three of my fantasy baseball leagues was “Chasing Utley”, a play on Chase Utley’s name and on the Kevin Smith movie “Chasing Amy”.

  2. This isn’t the wittiest of choices, but I’m pretty sure I’m going to go with “Angels Acquire Vernon Wells”. It will make my league laugh every time they see it.

  3. Is “The Itchy Pujols” already over-played?

    Comment by MTUCache — January 26, 2011 @ 10:32 am

  4. Otherwise I’m going to be stuck using “ARod’s Purse” again…

    Comment by MTUCache — January 26, 2011 @ 10:32 am

  5. For the last 3 or 4 years I have used “Sell My Grill Manny”

    Manny is one of modern day baseballs greatest characters. Any guy who is willing to take a picture next to his neighbor’s grill, say that it is his and include a signed baseball to help increase the selling price of the grill is worthy of fantasy baseball team named after him in my book.

  6. I had stolen one for a few years that i won’t Release here because I didn’t come up with it, but I’ll be changing to ‘Fisk Me’ for the new year

  7. For years, I’ve gone with “The Rio Granderson”

    Comment by gerardnmartin — January 26, 2011 @ 10:48 am

  8. Our league had movie/baseball names last year, based on players on our team. Some of the better ones: Inglorious Bastardos, The Dark Wright, The Braun Supremacy, The Hangoverbay, Shaun of the Dead, and Joakim Tall

    Comment by Jon Colosimo — January 26, 2011 @ 10:50 am

  9. I’m going with my old blog name this year: “Basement Dwellers.” Not only represents my likely position in the standings, but also a reference to the fact that all I do is sit in my basement and look at spreadsheets even though “I need to get outside and watch a damn game for once.”

  10. Ever since I read Ball Four, I’ve used the name Beaver Shooters in at least one league a year.

  17. Smell the Glove. Spinal Tap and baseball reference.

    Comment by odbsol — January 26, 2011 @ 11:10 am

  18. The Oneders (or spell it The O’Needers if they don’t get the movie reference). I go with this often.

    I’ve won a few leagues with Jeters Never Prosper, so I still dust it off from time to time even though it feels campy now.

    Comment by Nick — January 26, 2011 @ 11:52 am

  19. As a suffering Chad Qualls owner for much of last year, I adopted Chad LOLZ for the second half of the season.

  20. Last year I had Owners of a Loney Hart and Only the Loney. This year one of my teams names is With or without Youk

    Comment by Damon — January 26, 2011 @ 12:27 pm

  21. One of my best was just plain “Doug Fister” but it’s a little dirty.

    Liked “Always Wear Clean Hunter Pence”

    Tried “The Other Other Escobar” one time, didn’t work so well

    “Billy Beane is not My Lover” was pretty good.

    Just saw this one: “My Pujols Byrnes.” wow.

  22. My favorite from last year, though no longer as timely: Longorias Basterds

    Comment by Mark — January 26, 2011 @ 12:49 pm

  23. Off-topic kind of:

    I used to joke that Brodie Croyle’s passes landed “somewhere over Dwayne Bowe.”

    Comment by Travis Reitsma — January 26, 2011 @ 2:38 pm

  28. Being a huge Sim City fan as a kid, and a FPS gamer as a teen helped develop a love of llamas, so I often use Llamaville Sluggers and Alaskan Alpacas.

  33. for this year, I’m going with Yellow Beard Dipping Idiots, which is what Oney Guilley called Bobby Jenks. (It beats out Swell-Headed Bushers, which is what HomeRun Baker called Fred Snodgrass after spiking him twice in one 1911 world series game).
