Minor/Independent/Collegiate League Baseball Logo/Uniform Changes

I don't think either is so overwhelmingly iconic as to prohibit a minor league team from adopting the name.

I actually think of the Astros with Biggio, Bagwell, Derek Bell, and to an extent Lance Berkman.

This isn't an argument against the name, but the Red Sox seem to have their own Killer B's developing in Bogaerts, Betts, Bradley and Benintendi.

Staten Island Fairies, come on, do it.

These names are getting way too specific while simultaneously meaning nothing at all. None of those are any good, except maybe Killer Bees.

This is a very good observation. "Yard Goats" comes to mind. Incidentally, did we ever talk about how Hartford never finished building their park?

Man, I think all of those are pretty bad.  Pizza Rats kinda sounds it like was inspired by TMNT...maybe...not really...?

More than likely, it's inspired by this:

They're considering naming themselves after a two-year-old meme.

...and here I was worried that the proposed new names for the Zephyrs would be the worst in the minor leagues.

The problem with Heroes is that it can lead to a possible food association since heroes is another word for a sub and it can lead in nicely to bevy of "super" heroes specialty uniforms.

All those SI Yanks names are awful... here's to hoping there is a name on the back-burner they haven't told us about.  Staten Island Bambinos, anyone? Clippers? Iron Horses? Scooters? Tugboats?

While I personally like Tugboats, I doubt anyone would set themselves up for a "Let's go Tugs" chant. It's no Austin Peay, but still.

"Let's go Tugs" chanted by a crowd would sound something like "Less Goat Hugs."

 

So, I'm 100% all-in for Tugboats!

Or the easiest one of all, Ferries! \

 

Other options: Staten Island Oysters ("Shellfish was a staple of their diet, including the Eastern oyster (Crassostrea virginica) abundant in the waterways throughout the present-day New York City region. Evidence of their habitation can still be seen in shell middens along the shore in the Tottenville section, where oyster shells larger than 12 inches (305 mm) are not uncommon")

Staten Island Hudsons (Henry Hudson)

Staten Island Wheels (After the New York Wheel)

Staten Island Snakes (alliterated) or Rattlers ("
The Staten Island Zoo was also the first to exhibit all the 32 varieties of rattlesnakes known to occur in the United States.[citation needed] In the late 1960s, the Zoo maintained the most complete rattlesnake collection in the world with 39 varieties.")

All better.  The ones I listed were all Yankee player nicknames.  Bambinos - Ruth, Iron Horses - Gehrig, Clippers - DiMaggio, Scooters - Rizzuto, Tugboats - Munson

Reading the last paragraph made me think of three more possible names for this Staten Island team...1) Staten Island Vipers, and then 2) Staten Island Black Knights or 3) Staten Island Aces.

Are we witnessing the birth of Vegas-jacking? Like Duck-jacking, but with neon lights and more apathy.

Someone PLEASE make it stop...

 

The new Rangers high-A affiliate-to-be in Kinston, NC now has a name-the-team poll up. From MiLB.com:

 

Down East Eagles
VoteA nod to baseball history in the Eastern part of the state, the Eagles were the first pro team to play at Historic Grainger Stadium.


 

Down East HamHawks
VoteAs one of the country's biggest pork producers, there's no questioning the importance of the mighty pig in North Carolina. But, hogs are just a fraction of what the state is known for - this is also the birthplace of aviation. This team name is a play on words paying homage to some of the state's most notable contributions.


 

Down East Hogzillas
VoteWhole hog BBQ is part of the very fabric that makes Eastern North Carolina a colorful place. Hogzilla is a mighty and powerful team ready to bring home the bacon, and the wins, for fans.


 

Down East Shaggers
VoteThe Carolina Shag is a partner dance that will leave your toes tapping. Watch for members of this team to shag balls on the field and maybe even invite you to dance at the ballpark.


 

Down East Wood Ducks
VoteAlso known as "woodies", these colorful local waterfowl and a favorite among local hunters and boast some of the sharpest claws among all ducks. Less than 24 hours after hatching, these gutsy ducklings make a long and unassisted jump out of their nest high above the ground. Look for this team to make equally plucky plays on the field.
