Nickname Seeks Former Player: Dramatic Special Election Yes

You may recall that we recently presented the reader with every appearance of a meaningful and democratic vote on the nickname “Museum of Questionable Medical Devices.” It turns out that Barry Bonds, by a rather leisured margin, won the voting. Established practice would suggest that the nickname is now his. But, lo, the powers that be are as capricious as the nuts of lightning!

As such, it took but a simple peasant’s Internet comment to derail the process. Witness:

Egad, the lad has a point!

The nickname is “Museum of Questionable Medical Devices,” and Ted Williams, of course, had his coconut preserved in scientific pickle brine in the hopes that he would one day return to take back the streets. As such he seems an impossibly fine match for the nickname “Museum of Questionable Medical Devices.” On the other hand, the people — just look at them — have already spoken in their wee voices, and they want Barry Bonds. The best compromise at this point is a Final Vote Showdown Final. And that is what you shall find below …


Thank you for exercising the franchise.

Ted Williams is definitely the right choice here. Even if you wanted to go the steroid route, Clemens makes more sense than Bonds (the syringe in a can and stuff). But Williams is the only person here who could have multiple ‘artifacts’ in a museum of questionable devices.

In other news, I nominate Bert Blyleven for the nickname “Dramatic Special Election Yes” for the on-going HoF thing.

I thought this was a “Dramatic Special Election Yes” thread myself. I steeled myself to nominate Pete Rose.

Or possibly Jim Bunning.

Me too. That should be the next nickname we assign.

I exercised the franchise, and I exercised it hard.

This two party system is bullshit! I don’t like either option. I am writing in Rosie O’DOnnell’s character from A League of Their Own. Granted I’ve never seen the movie because it has Rosie O’Donnell in it. But, I think she deserves this name because I imagine that her OB-Gyn has lost a fistfull of devices in her cavernous, vaginosis-ridden twat. Join me in the revolution fellow freedom lovers. A vote for Rosie, is a vote for A Fistful of Dolores. A two thumbed, peyote button holding fist.

I clicked here believing I was about to voice an opinion on which former player should be granted the moniker “Dramatic Special Election Yes.” I feel cheated. The only way to rectify such disappointment is to introduce a player vote on the object of my confusion. In effect, a dramatic special election. Yes?

I think “Dramatic Special Election Yes” ought to be awarded to Kenesaw Mountain Landis.

Dramatic Special Election Yes belongs to Shoeless Joe, who definitely needs more nicknames.
