Right on with the name "Callix Crabbe". A name like that should automatically earn a 30% bonus on any future contract he gets in baseball. Callix Crabbe should indeed go down as one of the great names in baseball. What are some other names that rival ol' Callix? Can't think of any.
Fabulous question, deserves its own Hall of Names discussion. A few suggestions, not to say rules, as you pursue your best contributions ...
- No nicknames. We love Boog Powell and all for which he (rotundly) stood, but let's stick to the art of the given name. Sorry to you, too, Yogi, Mookie, Dizzy, Tuffy, Chili and Boof. (Yes, yes, Bonser actually changed his legal name to "Boof." But that's not his given name originally, so no dice, Boofster.)
- No team theme is necessary -- though the two names mentioned in the aforementioned thread after mamboon's post both could've landed spots on our old X-rated team (Rusty Kuntz and Rusty Peters, match made in heav ... er, in hell), but don't limit your thinking that way. Besides, both are disqualified under Rule #1.
- We're just looking for names that sound cool ... Callix Crabbe. Laschelle Tarver. Yuniesky Betancourt. Vladimir Guerrero. Lastings Milledge. You get the idea!
