View Full Version : Berardino: Twins CF trio need a nickname

Ron Gardenhire started all three center field candidates in the outfield yesterday (and encouraged La Velle E Neal to take the three-hour road trip to Dunedin to see them (http://www.startribune.com/sports/twins/193124291.html).) Mike Berardino wants a nickname for them, and Joe Benson hasn't been able to help him....


Did the trio, which is battling for the Opening Day job in center field, have time to come up with a nickname of its own?
"No, we're not that creative," Benson said with a laugh, "but I know we can run pretty well



Are we that creative? Well, are we?

If it was a duo this would be easy.

These are kind of negative .... I thought the point was they are three very fast center fielders all playing at the same time...that's a good thing isn't it?

Why are we coming up for a starting outfield nickname that includes at least one clear-cut reserve outfielder? Methinks we wait for Arcia and go with: Hicks Bens-Oz Particle and call it a day.

Suggest we call them the Roadrunners - because with this pitching staff, they're going to be running down a lot of balls.
Either that or the Wallbangers - because they're liable to be hitting the wall often.

Three Men and a Baby (Buxton)

As was pointed out, one of the three is destined as a fourth outfielder on a good team, so make that Two and a Half Men.
