Farm hands, waiting for a cup of coffee...
A chance to go to the show...
Isn't such lingo "made" for wiffle activities? The possibilities are just about endless with some 240 + clubs out there. Minor league logos and mascots are meant for wiffleball. The minors, like wiffles, are built on shtick. With which team would you affiliate? Here are some possible matches for today's HRL squads.
A's: Montgomery Biscuits
Lovable dudes, just like a good ol'-fashioned biscuit (complete with a pat 'o butter mouth).
ASTROS: West Tenn Diamond Jaxx
Word is, they like moustaches and picks.
BLUE JAYS: Grand Prairie AirHogs
Self-explanatory? I thought so.
BRAVES: Albuquerque Isotopes
Team chemistry has always been a mainstay of the Braves. Very little turn over for this group of sluggers.
COLT 45's: Richmond Flying Squirrels
Is there an animal that better exemplifies TT?
CUBS: Cedar Rapids Kernels
Down-home, corn-fed fellas
DODGERS: New Jersey Jackals
They're rabid. They want to eat you by 16 runs each game.
EXPOS: Traverse City Beach Bums
The ultimate laid back squad. If they were any more laid back, they'd be horizontal.
GIANTS: Gary SouthShore RailCats
Sometimes, during games, the Giants look as menacing as their mascot. They seem like they would like to be swinging steel tracks at your ass.
INDIANS: Lansing Lugnuts
What an amalgamation of dudes' dudes (this is in no way a CJ IQ joke...in no way).
MARLINS: Greensboro Grasshoppers
This young squad took on the grasshopper role and has learned the ins and outs of non-newb WB.
METS: West Michigan White Caps
Just like large bodies of water that rhythmically hit you with waves, the Mets rhythmically pound you with, 'meet the Mets, meet the Mets...' Aaahhhhh!
ORIOLES: Las Vegas 51's
I know about as much about these guys as I do about Area 51. Cinches it for me.
PHILLIES: Asheville Tourists
The Phils could shtick the hell out of tourism. Mound buckets of WB's may no longer be necessary - Think, fanny packs.
PIRATES: Inland Empire 66ers of San Bernardino
Long on name and shtick - ringer for Ten and the boys.
REDS: Jupiter Hammerheads
They intrigue many, but few endeavor to swim with them (except for the Kid – he's a badass). Could be the bubblegum pop music blaring during their games.
RED SOX: Tulsa Drillers
Doesn't this just scream the Man? I think he refers to himself more as 'the driller' than as Rian.
TWINS: Southern Maryland Blue Crabs
No doubt, there has been at least one case of crabs on this team. Not to mention, K-Mart is a menacing pincer.
WHITE SOX: Modesto Nuts
Is there a sane member?
YANKEES: Mesa Solar Sox
Anyone who purposely chooses the Yankees earns a soft logo.
WHAT SAY YOU??
