I recommend this Score Bard post which includes our fine 3B, “Altered Brain”. Check it out.

    Are you trying to cheer us up or something?

    I kinda like Jimi John Jake … it’s better than JoMama

    Rear Envier? Oh man, I’m dying…

    Ruin Ablaze seems so appropriate.

    I’m surprised the fact that the Mariners’ backup catcher is Rear Envier hasn’t gotten more attention from muckracking media members.

    Don’t forget BavasiTowerspalooza a week from Sunday! RSVP if you haven’t already:

    Chillness Ring.

    Well of course he has the coolest anagram.

    man, I just thought of that old M’s commercial, with Dan Wilson showing the photos of his favorite players….

    Well, we haven’t had great luck using the name “Doyle”…perhaps we should adopt “Chillness” when referring to He-who-must-not-be-named-for-fear-of-him-getting-injured-
    hitter-making-all-Mariner’s-fans-weep-just-because-someone-actually-used-his-real-name. Just an idea.

    Re #7

    I 2nd that thought… Chillness, equally cool sounding as Doyle

    Doyle always reminds me of that lost in translation line from The 25th Hour (Murphy’s Law) and that is not good for Chillness’ well being.

    Re #7

    I third the nomination. He should be known as Chillness from this day forward!

    Here is one I hope the Mariners get:


  11. Deanna on February 24th, 2006 12:36 pm

    I’m just surprised they seem to have left off one of our lefty relief pitchers, the Shire Egg Roller.

  12. Tek Jansen on February 24th, 2006 12:50 pm

    I sure hope that the labrum of Chile Gem does not require another surgery.

  13. Anthony on February 24th, 2006 12:55 pm

    Not a Mariner, granted, but after the agony of watching Bernie Williams play the field the last few years, I find it infinitely amusing that his anagram is Liable; Mires Win.

  14. Tek Jansen on February 24th, 2006 12:56 pm

    But I would not mind if a certain switching hitting DH would Travel Crete to open up a roster spot for Chillness Ring

  15. PositivePaul on February 24th, 2006 1:01 pm

    Deanna — nope. They got ‘im covered:

    Here Go Grillers

    And they got “the other guy”, too:

    Tot Rant Month

  16. Tek Jansen on February 24th, 2006 1:03 pm

    And despite the Ibanez signing, I do like the minor league deal offered to Get Train Or Beep.

    OK, I have to go. This game has cured my Sudoku addiction, but I need to get to work.

  17. Deanna on February 24th, 2006 1:19 pm

    #15 Paul – oh, whoops! I don’t know how I missed that. Of course you’d pick up on it 🙂

    I really like the Rangers entry. Padilla as “Vanilla Ice Dept” is just awesome. Word to your bullpen.

    This reminds me of the ALCS when I was writing my “Angels vs. Devils” thing, and came up with stuff like “Satan, Loser Rejoicer” for Contreras, “Gory Aid For Dante in CA” for Freddy, and “I Dock Tinted Corpses” for Podsednik. Of course, then I had to point out that Mr. Erstad was infact “a nerds triad”.

    But my favorite current player anagram is still, completely unrelated, that “Chase Cameron Utley” becomes “An ace homers cutely”.

  18. Evan on February 24th, 2006 2:05 pm

    Word to your bullpen.

    I laughed out loud at that.

  19. msb on February 24th, 2006 2:35 pm

    btw, Ski Zurich Oui has led his team to victory in the first exhibition game in Japan

  20. Dash on February 24th, 2006 2:57 pm

    I think TJ Bohn’s is the most creative. TB John.

  21. Evan on February 24th, 2006 4:40 pm

    You prefer that to PJ Jutz?

  22. Dave in Palo Alto on February 24th, 2006 4:57 pm

    I hate seeing to see Travel Erect filling the shoes of my Main Tzar Edger.

  23. irish on February 24th, 2006 5:08 pm

    My favorite anagram is the Blue Jays’ newly signed starting catcher…Boiling Enema.

  24. ConorGlassey on February 24th, 2006 5:24 pm

    I, Greasy Colons, really enjoy visiting and reading the fine work of Duke Germ Zest, Cadaver Omen, Jamaica Herb Snorkel and, um…Wash Jeff.

  25. Trademark on February 24th, 2006 8:08 pm

    Topical anagrams of USS Mariner:

    SEA is Mr. Run
    A remiss run

    Not so topical ones (hopefully):

    Rum is saner
    Animus errs

    Left out of this comment entirely:

    The naughty ones involving nurses. Check an anagram generator if you’d *really* like to know…

    (aka a dark term, Drama Trek, marked rat, Tad Kramer)

  26. Trademark on February 24th, 2006 8:19 pm

    Oh, and on the Doyle subject, there is also:

    Shin cells ring

    Not sure if that’s a good omen, but it’s certainly a musical cue…

    o/~ My hamstrings ’tis of thee
    curse dis-a-bil-ity
    my shin cells ring. 0/~)

    My favorite player names: Rezone Erect, Tot Rant Month, and the indomitable Timid New Ballerina.

    Some of these anagrams are more descriptive of the actual players than their real names.
