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.)

Comments

Jeff Pico de Gallo (C) Carlos @ Parachat.

How about:

Giovany "Riz" Soto
Scott "Chocolate Ecl" Eyre
Neal "Apri" Cotts
Michael "Liver" Wuertz

mmmmm... Porky Pawelek

Carlos Marmolade

Enos Country Slaughter...

Rice-a-Ronny Cedeno
A Ramen Ramirez

Matt Murton Chops?

"Doughnuts" Hendry

The coach, the man who combines all the delicious items into a winning lineup card of a meal: Dusty Baker. Just remember not to have too many plates on the table, it might clog up the meal.

  • Glad to see Hudson having another good outing. He is so impressive for an 18/yo. Surprised to see Shane V. still there. I thought he would be gone this week. I can picture today. Thanks Phil!

  • stats don't lie. *nods*

  • 2016 Cubs are 0-1 on day after Trans recaps, 20-5 in other games. I enjoy his recaps, but there is a price to pay.

  • He's the Albert Pujols of recaps and has gotten a huge contract based on past performance. He doesn't need to do anything the rest of his days and he'll still get love.

  • I thought he was one-and-done on recaps?

    Didn't he get Optioned?

  • Link?

    /I keed

  • Thank you very much for such a robust response. So hard to get anything on these guys that it's nice to hear from someone who has actually seen them. Great to hear about Paredes, I have pretty high hopes for this group of IFAs.

    How impressed are you with these guys and size? I know they're pretty large prospects, especially for their ages. I consider size a plus at this stage - IIRC Amaya is the only one below 6'2"? IIRC Kwon had some baby fat on him it, Sierra's traditionally considered projectable as he's all arms and legs, Paredes has that Peralta build at SS....

  • Godzilla won in the Japanese version, Kong swam off in the American one. At least I think that's how it went....Rematch in 2020, possibly!

  • He has a community everywhere and he can go into any bathroom he damn well chooses.. His recaps are that good.

  • Trans has a community in NC?

  • i do hold strong feelings for which bathroom lester should use...mostly because i think he'd make a huge mess at a stand up urinal.

  • Phil, any news on Oscar de la Cruz? Is he actively rehabbing?

  • Obama approves that message, as does the Trans community in N.C.

  • The advantage we have is Ross is a bit susceptible to the walk and this Cubs team, you know, walks a lot.

    get a room, you two. actually, bring it in for a group hug! yeah!

    The Crunch Reporter thanks you for your input. my feelies...however...weep for the future of this country.
