    Default Best baseball player name, EVER!

    The Met's third base coach gets my vote...

    Maybe he can get an endorsement deal from Maas???

    Hmm... maybe from a wet shaver's (so I guess this would include me) point of view it's the best. But from a purely baseball perspective, Clete Thomas of the Detroit Tigers has a pretty fitting name, and it's not even a nickname!

    Yup. He used to play AA ball with the Indianapolis Indians, back when they were a farm club for the Expos. I was 8-10, and our little league teams used to go to games every season. He was their best hitter and most well-known player for an awfully long time by minor league standards.

    I suppose Sal "The Barber" Maglie should get a mention as well.

    How 'bout some love for Mose "The Rabbi of Swat" Solomon? Lifetime batting average: .375 (3 for 8; 1923).

    Default Yaz

    Gotta go with the Yaz. Carl Yastrzemski.

    The last person to win a triple crown (1967).

    I had my picture taken with him at Met Stadium (Bloomington, MN). The next year, I had the picture sent into the clubhouse and he signed it.

    Saw him play at both Fenway Park and Met Stadium.

    What a guy!

    Definitely the most ironic name, in that he rarely sat on a bench!

    He can't have the best baseball name ever if die hard baseball people are the only ones that can pronounce his name.

    No way you're a Red Sox fan, then.

    Personally, I think "Bill Buckner" and "Bucky Dent" are two of the best as well. [sox fans]
