Sox minor league pitcher Rusty Tucker is my current favorite. Heaven help him at the Cell if he ever goes bad.

CoCo is a nickname. Boof has his name legally changed.

Personally, though, I gotta say: "Where is Jimmy Gobble?"

Coco was the best on the list, but Rocco Baldelli is a good one.

We have a winner. That has always been my favorite.

Rusty Kuntz is pretty good also.

There's nothing special about Johny Damen's name but I like saying it in Charles Bronson's voice.

If you asked anyone off the street to draw someone named "Biff Pocoroba", I guarantee it would be pretty damn close to the picture on this card.

I find your tag and your post ironic considering the Boog Powell once dropped a throw from Luis Aparicio to lose a game in which their pitchers gave up no hits. If the had caught the throw, the Orioles would have had a 9-inning no hitter.

Boog Powell was quite the sight in the infrequently worn all-orange Orioles uniform.

I always thought that was the most badass baseball name, ever. Although, my father told me to never trust a man with two first names.
