Moniker Madness

So, most of the time when this or that organization tries to ride on the coattails of an already established tradition, it kind of bugs me.  This time, however, I think I have to play along...

Minor League Baseball has started Moniker Madness.  The game is to vote for the best names in minor league baseball, and the M's have three current representatives and one former.

In the "Icicle Reeder" division, RHP Austin Bibens-Dirkx faces stiff competition from Bronson K. Sardinha.  Bronson Kiheimahanaomauiakeo Sardinha.  Like I said, this one is going to be tough.

In the same division, '06 Aquasox RHP Ari Kafka faces off against Terry Large.  Eh?

Down in the "Farmer Works" part of the bracket, there's former Mariner farmhand A.J. Zapp facing Rocky Cherry, but the one that interests me more in the same is, my favorite name in the system three years running, IF Jetsy Extrano is going against some guy name Gil Gil (and currently losing).

Of course, there are other polls around that you still can and should be voting for, but this one's pretty good too.
