The first strike against this list is that it uses the term "first annual". Ugh.

I love minor-league identities, but not necessarily these. Here's my take on the list.

Biscuits' - fun logo, unique name.

Jammers - stupid name. logo looks like a constipated tumor.

Nuts - great name, even better logo

Isotopes - Good name that would have been much better if it was original. Logo is subpar for such a great name.

Catfish - definitely a minor-league name, but mascot isn't unique. I like the logo, though.

Swing - should have been #1 out of this group.

Grasshoppers - a classic minor-league name & logo!

What's missing?

Burlington Bees - perhaps my favorite logo in the minors.

Cedar Rapids Kernels - I guess they do two things in Iowa, grow corn and make great logos.

Connecticut Defenders - previously mentioned.

this guys criteria seems to be as follows:

-logo must scream "minor league baseball"

-team must have a silly name that works

i doubt he really looked through all the logos to come to a decision. if he had the list might have included:

Brooklyn Cyclones(mentioned)

Auburn Doubledays

Fresno Grizzlies

Boise Hawks

Cedar Rapids Kernals(mentioned)

Jacksonville Suns

Myrtle Beach Pelicans

Corpus Christi Hooks

wow, thats more than 5...oh well.

Biscuits - Tasty name and logo. Nuf Ced.

Jammers - Have the good burghers in Jamestown considered changing the name to the Jamestown Fighting Lower Intestines?

Nuts - Hillarious, but somehow a rip-off of the Visalia Oaks

Isotopes - The Simpsons called. They want the name back.

Catfish - Someone investigate that fish.. I think it's on steroids.

Umm...Jamestown Jammers? That could be the WORST logo ever. And that's not new this year; that sad-sack logo debuted last year, so Rovell contradicted himself. Way to do your necessary research.

Better than the depraved demon muskrat....
