Funny Fantasy Baseball Names

funny fantasy baseball1


Winning your fantasy baseball league requires baseball knowledge, hard work and a lot of luck. Thinking of a funny name for your fantasy baseball team just requires a few moments of inspiration.

Funny fantasy baseball names typically involve one of the players on your team and a pun. Some funny fantasy baseball names are based on song or movie titles. (In 2013, we imagine there was a “Call Me Maybin” in every single fantasy baseball league.)

We’ve compiled a long list of what we think are the most funny fantasy baseball names of the last few years. We’ve also ranked our top five favorites from the group. Let us know if you agree or disagree and make sure to add your own funny fantasy baseball names in the comment section.

5. A Streetcar Named Cuddyer
When Tennessee Williams wrote a Streetcar Named Desire in 1947 he couldn’t have known that 66 years later Michael Cuddyer would win a batting title, thanks to the thin Colorado air, making Williams’ Pulitzer Prize winning drama relevant once again. Oddly, the play’s title would have made about the same amount of sense if Williams had gone with a Streetcar Named Cuddyer.

4. Cano Soup For You
Anytime you can combine a great American show like Seinfeld and the great American pastime of baseball you should go with it. We can’t wait for agent Jay-Z to use this clever phrase when the Yankee’s refuse to give into his $200 million demands for Robinson Cano’s new contract. Cano Soup For You!

3. Don’t Ask Dotel
Octavio Dotel is so ancient he was actually in the minor leagues in 1994 when “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell,” the government’s then-official policy on gays in the military, went into effect. In 2011, the year ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” was rescinded, Octavio helped the St.Louis Cardinals win the World Series. Coincidence? Almost certainly.

2. He’s Just Not Shin Soo Choo
The influx of Asian players into Major League Baseball has allowed American fans to see such talents as Ichiro Suzuki and Yu Darvish. It’s also been a bonanza to fantasy baseball, as the exotic pronunciations of their names really lend themselves to funny team titles. Because, let’s face it, if you can’t do something good with a name like Shin Soo Choo you’re never going to have a clever team name. Still, you’d be hard pressed to ever top the nod to the romcom “He’s Just Not Shin Soo Choo.”

1. I’m Bringing Sexson Back
Ex-Boy Bander Justin Timberlake first brought SexyBack in 2006. Three-true outcomes slugger Richie Sexson retired from baseball after the 2008 season. And thus was born the greatest fantasy name of all time. And one that will work as long as Sexson remains retired, which means forever.
