What, Derek, Lawrence and Roger weren't good enough? Yogi will hear "smarter than the average bear" jokes, Maris is a girl's name, and God only knows what's going to happen to Jeter. It's enough to make them want to be Dodgers fans.

Looks like Maris IS a little girl.

Sounds about right for Yankee fans

The old-timers call Roger "Asterisk" and it really pisses him off because now the kids do it, too.

Time to tell Mrs. Soopey that her kids will be named Ted, Wade, Carl, and Pedro.

They didn't go with Seven?

I'm a Reds fan going back to 1970 but no way was I going to name my daughter Marge.

I assume Maris is really uptight and snobby but in a familiar, comforting way. We will never actually see her, though.

i hope they end up sox fans when they try to piss off their parents

Do they have a pet toad named Irabu?

...and they probably live nowhere near NYC.

Yup. Kansas.

I'm drawing a blank on who Andy might be named after (bearing in mind that Andy is the brother of someone who looks to be about 40-45, so clearly not Pettitte).

Here's my best guess:

Andy Carey

But yeah, I specifically clicked just to see if they'd explain that.

Wow. That's sad.

I did a little clicking.  That was the best I could come up with, too.

That or some magical precognitive abilities that predicted the coming of Pettitte.

That'd be like naming your kid Shane, for Shane Spencer.

Still, your guess is better than my guess of Andy Hawkins, also in the wrong time frame but not as far off as Pettitte.

If you want to give your kid a name that's unmistakeably Yankee-themed, how about Thurman or Tino or Mariano or Graig?

(Of course, the last one might cause some to hesitate, considering the guy wrote a book about what a buffoon George Steinbrenner was.)

/waiting for a generation of kids named Masahiro
 
2014-07-05 02:03:23 PM  
And this is differs from  parents naming kids after figures in their respectful religious mythos/histories how?
 
2014-07-05 09:28:42 PM  
If I had had kids I'd go with Tim, Gary and Andre.

They need to hire a chef named Harry Stevens and then they'll have a perfect set.
