Submitted by Transmission on Wed, 11/22/2006 - 9:29am
Huh, I had forgotten about This Entry from last Thanksgiving, the All-Food team. For your consuming pleasure, here it is, again, with a few updates. The only eligiblity requirements for the team are that the player: A. has a food-related name B. at some point played for the Cubs C. has a food-related name that is so delicious, and plays a position where the Cubs don't have a home-grown alternative, thus requiring an imaginary trade so that we can complete our roster. There isn't much pitching or infield depth to this team, but you've got to love the outfield...
C - Pickles Dillhoefer 1B - Catfish Metkovich 2B - Rabbit Warstler SS - Rabbit Maranville 3B - Pie Traynor (Acquired by Cubs from the Pittsburgh Pirates) LF - Peanuts Lowrey CF - Turkey Stearns (Acquired by Cubs from the Kansas City Monarchs) RF - Goose Goslin (Acquired by Cubs from the Washington Senators) SP - Steve Trout SP - Noodles Hahn (Acquired by Cubs from the Cincinnati Reds) SP - Doug Bird RP - Goose Gossage RP - Sweetbreads Bailey RP - Ducky Swan (Acquired by Cubs from the Federal League's Kansas City Packers) RP - Herb Brett (thanks to KJK) Backup Corner OF Candy Maldonado Ginger Beaumont (thanks to KJK) Backup MI Bobby Sturgeon (Another KJK discovery) Backup Catchers Damon Berryhill Peaches Graham Porky Pawelek Del Rice Manager - Herman Franks Third Base Coach - Cookie RojasAnd this is all before factoring in Felix Pie and Rocky Cherry, or potential trades for Tim Salmon and Jim Rice, or creative liberties like manager Jim French Frey, Hank Sauer Kraut, or Jeff Pico de Gallo. Several of these names were produced from comments last year, anything new to add?
