The Importance of Fantasy Baseball Team Names

What’s in a name?” Juliet asks.  ”That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet,” she says.  Okay, Shakespeare, we get it, names are relatively arbitrary.  Except in fantasy baseball.  A fantasy team by any other name would not be nearly as sweet. Here then to help you, are some of the best (worst?) fantasy baseball team names from the writers here at Fantasy Baseball Crackerjacks.
