Spring training is well underway, and I suppose I could analyze players and teams, or tell you how much I love the smell of grass (I don't--I don't even really love watching games--I mean, they're great when they come in at 2 hours or under, but not more--mostly I just like reading about them, which probably makes me something approaching a baseball heretic). Instead, I think it's time we establish that some baseball players have had some funky names. All these players have officially played in the MLB, according to the inimitable baseball-reference.com:
Oil Can Boyd
For my money, Oil Can Boyd takes the prize. It's pure poetry: Oil Can Boyd. You just want to say it out loud. I also like the simplicity of Lu Blue, and the oddity of Oyster Burns. I'll try to get to the post-D players at some point.
