Best Fantasy Baseball Team Name Contest

Mar 16, 2010

Fantasy baseball will soon be upon us. While you’re studying up , don’t forget the important task of creating your team name. You want it to be funny and memorable.

If you’ve got a good name, share it here. Whoever has the best name will get a free Evan Longoria Fathead, Jr.  All you need to win is a creative name and an e-mail address so I can get your shipping information.  You needn’t use any part of LestersLegends in your name.  You can reference baseball players, songs, movies, whatever.  Just be original and keep it somewhat clean.

Limit three team names per entrant.  The contest will be open until April 1st.

To help get the creative juices flowing I’ve offered the following suggestions:

Hanley My Business or Hanley out Beatdowns

Brains & Braun

Hot Dogs with Mauerkraut

Sizemore Matters

Climbing Up on Ellsbury Hill – Peter Gabriel reference

Morales of the Story


For What It’s Werth

Cano You Didn’t

*** UPDATE ***

I used to select the winner. The winning pick, a sweet Johnny Cash reference, was Train Kept a Rollins.

Thanks to everyone for entering. Good luck with your fantasy teams.
