A Thanksgiving Tradition

Not as old or celebrated as the Macy's parade, but more entertaining, it's.... it's.... Thanksgiving-Themed Baseball Names! Re-hashbrowning what we came up with, last year, here's your All-Turkey Team. The only eligiblity requirements for the team are that the player: A. has a food-related name B. at some point played for the Cubs C. has a food-related name that is so delicious, and plays a position where the Cubs don't have a home-grown alternative, thus requiring an imaginary trade so that we can complete our roster. C - Pickles Dillhoefer 1B - Catfish Metkovich 2B - Rabbit Warstler SS - Rabbit Maranville 3B - Pie Traynor (Acquired in fantasy-trade from the Pittsburgh Pirates) LF - Peanuts Lowrey CF - Felix Pie RF - Goose Goslin (Acquired in fantasy-trade from the Washington Senators) SP - Steve Trout SP - Noodles Hahn (Acquired in fantasy-trade from the Cincinnati Reds) SP - Doug Bird RP - Goose Gossage RP - Sweetbreads Bailey RP - Ducky Swan (Acquired in fantasy-trade from the Federal League's Kansas City Packers) RP - Rocky Cherry Backup OF Candy Maldonado Ginger Beaumont Turkey Stearns (Acquired in fantasy-trade from the Kansas City Monarchs) Backup MI Bobby Sturgeon Backup Catchers Damon Berryhill Peaches Graham Porky Pawelek Del Rice Manager - Herman Franks Third Base Coach - Cookie Rojas And this is all before factoring in additional fantasy trades for Tim Salmon and Jim Rice, or creative liberties like manager Jim French Frey, Hank Sauer Kraut, or Jeff Pico de Gallo. Several of these names were produced from the comments in the last couple of Thanksgiving threads, anything new to add? (oh and hi. I'm not dead, yet.)
