This list is invalid, because there is a prospect named Handsome Monica.

Wow! Not only that, but there are photos online of Handsome Monica tagging a runner out by double-punching him in the scrotum.

Just another solid tag to save a wild toss on a pick-off play. Happens every day when you’re Handsome Monica.

So what’s his striding to the plate music- Lola?

“Sneedclone” is very good, but upon seeing the name I instead went immediately to Cy “Sy Snootles” Sneed “and the Max Rebo Band.” And I now think he is a puppet.
