Why Bobson, and why Dugnutt? A deep dive into why and how Fighting Baseball's names are what they are - and a joke that's been hidden for over 25 years

folks, I just learned that hall of fame manager Connie Mack's birth name was Cornelius McGillicuddy. I don't really follow any baseball threads on ilx but given that that's pretty much the best name ever I had to search out the appropriate place to share my glee

Gehrig Pineda rules

Tapping the sign for outfielder ROMAN ANTHONY, as ever, mainly because the chances my dn has to exist are non-zero

Roman Anthony gets on his horse (gyac), Friday, 15 March 2024 09:53 (four months ago) link

so one of the fantasy sites i play on still sends me an email pretty much every time a new player is added to the database. i am sure i could turn this off but i choose not to because sometimes i get names of minor leaguers that rule. recently it hit me with an email with one or two dozen names, and i had to write some down, and now i will share them here

here are some (new) guys:
Zander Darby
Duce Gourson
Chase Harlan
Kale Fountain
Rustan Rigdon

i've added them to my "cool names" list along with more established prospects that have been there a while, including:
Leodalis De Vries
Chase DeLauter
Xavier Isaac
JJ Bleday
Christian Encarnacion-Strand
Wyatt Langford

Ryan seaQuest (Will M.), Friday, 15 March 2024 17:45 (four months ago) link

also roman anthony was on said list but i didn't include him bc you mentioned him (also, incredible dn gyac)

Ryan seaQuest (Will M.), Friday, 15 March 2024 17:46 (four months ago) link

There was a prospect on one of the teams called Dillon Dingler.

Ty, Will! I hope to hear someone say it irl!
