Kevin Slowey pitched a complete game, shutout against the White Sox last night. That led me to thinking how unfortunate a name "Slowey" is for a pitcher. I don't know which is worse, "Slowey" or "Balfour" as in Grant Balfour, former Twins pitcher who plays for the Rays now.
Here are some Twins with great names:
Boof Bonser
Shooter Hunt (Named after the drunk in Hoosiers)
Anthony Slama (He's a closer, he slams the door shut on the other team)

Other MLB players:
Coco Crisp
Milton Bradley
Tim Spooneybarger
Razor Shines
