Welcome back to FanPost Friday. You made it, it’s Friday, and it’s hot as heck all around the Northwest. Cool yourself off with this softball of a prompt (also come play SoftbaLL with us tomorrow).
What is your favorite minor league baseball team name and/or logo?
The Mariners farm system alone has quite a few gems. There’s Otey up above there, watching the world burn down in Little Rock. The AquaSox have their frog and the Lumberkings have their maniacal large-armed lumber man. The Modesto Nuts have not one, but THREE DIFFERENT NUTS as mascots. And of course there is the adorable Rhubarb down in Tacoma, forever waiting his call-up to the bigs whenever the Moose finally tears his/her Achilles doing back flips on the visiting dugout.
Anyways, after reviewing many MiLB logos, I think this is my favorite.
I mean, it’s fucking absurd. Let’s start with the fact that Oysters don’t have eyes? Okay, check, moving on. The lil’ fucker is WEARING A BUCKET HAT like he’s going fishing in “Grumpy Old Men.” Oh wait, gotta make it baseball related so let’s give him ARMS and a baseball bat to menacingly swing one-handed. Hell yeah. Presto, an amazingly hilarious anthropormorphic nightmare of a logo for the Biloxi Shuckers.
So, what’s your favorite? Submit your answer (with photos/graphics) in a FanPost and we’ll front page the best ones over the weekend.
