The Cleveland Rocks!

yeah this is it

Won't happen with the Rockies.

I mean, it's going to be Spiders. It's just a matter of when they announce it.

Yes I hope they go with Spiders.  Or as a non serious suggestion, the River Fires.

Every time I pick a favorite, I read the next name and have to reevaluate

I love River Fires but it sounds minor leaguey AF

I was going to comment that MLB names are very traditional, but if you go back 2 of the last 3 "new" names are Diamondbacks and Devil Rays, which are kind of minor leaguey, I think. (also part of why they went to just Rays?)

Spiders has some history with it, so that's probably the easiest to go with.

Both are animals found in the area of the team that they are named for. They dropped the devil for the dumbest reason ever. Their new owners wanted to rebrand, which is fine, but they wanted to exercise the devil from their franchise when they brought the team, as they were historically shitty when they were sold.

If this isn't the greatest endorsement that cancel culture is a fake construct from fragile whitebois, I don't know what else could be.

True. I guess most old baseball names are just relatively vague or have moved so they have little to do with the area anyway. Minor league names seem to be more local/regional/mascot based. Prairie dogs around Amarillo? Let's call the team the Sod Poodles and have a prairie dog mascot! But recent MLB team names are similar since they're making a connection with the area.

Like, if an MLB team was called the Blues, Grays, Cleats, Barnstormers, Belts, or Hats, or Stirups, or Green pants, no one would think much of it.. but if it's an expansion team people would be like WTF, why is there not a connection to the area? ha.

Also the first time I recall seeing “for the right reasons” outside of bachelor tv franchise talk.

Cleveland Trains. Build a track around the stadium and sell tickets so kids can ride the steamer during the game.

Create a Lil' Steamers package for season ticket holders so their kids get unlimited rides.

Baseball is just more fun when the Mets are good.  No one parties like the Mets.
