Best Fantasy Baseball Team Names: 2011 Early Surprises

May 11, 2011


.
Perhaps the fantasy baseball season hasn’t gone as you anticipated. Your first two picks of Evan Longoria and Josh Hamilton have been on the shelf. Ubaldo Jimenez and Mat Latos are nowhere near what you were expecting. Just because you are off to a bumpy start doesn’t mean the fun is over. Here are some fantasy baseball team names based on some of the early surprises that can give you something to smile about.
.
Joyce to the World:  Matt Joyce‘s fast start certainly has those savvy enough to grab him singing a tune. By the way, where the heck is Jeremiah the bullfrog?
.
Masterson of My Domain:  Jerry, Kramer, George, and Elaine would be proud of the way Justin Masterson has handled himself in the first few weeks of the season.
.
Kubel Than the Other Side of the Pillow:  Actually Jason Kubel as been anything but cool. He’s about the only Twins player producing at the plate.
.
Beachy Blanket Bingo:  You can got this route or you can go the Son of a Beachy route, with Brandon Beachy. I opted for the Frankie Avalon reference.
.
Filthy Sanchez:  There has been nothing filthy about Gaby Sanchez‘s start. He’s even showing some pop.
.
Harangutan:  Aaron Harang has been a gentle giant this year. He’s been getting the job done, but his strikeouts  have gone down.
.
Ryan “The Snake” Roberts:  Diamondbacks are getting more than expected from Ryan Roberts.
.
North Correia:  Pittsburgh has treated Kevin Correia well.
.
Know When to Fuld ‘em:  After a hot start, it’s getting harder to hold Sam Fuld.
.
Great Britton:   Great is exactly what Zach Britton has been thus far for the Orioles.
