A New York Yankees Single-A affiliate is in the midst of a name change, bringing intriguing name choices into the mix.
Back in June, the Staten Island Yankees announced that they would be changing their name.
Now, a short list of potential name choices is surfacing. Let’s just say some make more logical sense than the others:
- Staten Island Bridge Tolls
- Staten Island Heroes
- Staten Island Killer Bees
- Staten Island Pizza Rats
- Staten Island Rock Pigeons
The Bridge Tolls make sense given their location. The Heroes is a cheesy name, but it fits nonetheless.
With that said, the other choices are simply preposterous. The Killer Bees? The Rock Pigeons? The Pizza Rats?
Why don’t we keep a serious organization the way it is. For instance, the “Staten Island Pizza Rats” breathes foolishness from a franchise which signifies class.
Brace yourselves, Yankee fans.
