  • Use your last name & improve our team!

    Stupid thread, and it will tend to draw people with last names of Jackson, Johnson, Smith, Williams etc. but I will start with a team of big league players all with the same last name of mine. If you can find a better player who has your last name (use your real last name, no cheating) and played at least one game at the position you're choosing, modify the most recent post containing the full team and replace with "your" player and nick

    Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.

      A search of my last name (Freeland) on baseball-almanac.com yields:
      Dick Ward, died in Freeland, WA
      Matt Broderick, died in Freeland, PA
      Conny McGeehan and John Shovlin, both buried in Freeland, PA

      What's with all the death? Isn't anyone ever born in Freeland, PA?

      The Brewers did have a prospect named Dean Freeland who was traded to the Giants for the immortal Rob Deer, but he never made it out of triple-a.

            Now we're getting a team. Now edit these into post #1, and there must have been one Thomas pitcher better than my guys

              Maybe Roy Thomas. The Thomas pitchers are an unimpressive lot.

                            I think this team needs a fifth starting pitcher.

                            This is pretty interesting. I had no clue that no one with the last name Haynes has never been a MLB position player. Three pitchers, though.

                              I'll make a couple of upgrades -
                              C - Lance Parrish
                              3B - Larry Parrish
                              Let's rid baseball of the pestilence of the DH now and forever!
