Name Game

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 11, 2020

Ok here’s a fun game to play if you are completely freaking bored as I am right now. I saw this on twitter, I didn’t invent it. Without looking at any rosters, come up with the first or last name of a Giants player for each letter in the alphabet. It has to be the first name you think of (like when I picked Aardsma I always remembered he had a cool name that started with Aa and that was the first name that popped into my head when I thought of A. I struck out on Q and X. I spent the longest time on F for some reason. And I used a nickname for M but I went with it because that’s the first name that I thought of when I got to M. Give it a whirl, this took me like 20 minutes to do. And try not to read my list if you haven’t done so already, it will mess with you doing it completely by yourself.

Aardsma

Beck

Chili Davis

Deion Sanders

Evans

Fred Lewis (this one took forever for some reason)

Gott

Hammaker

Ivie

Julian Tavarez

Krukow

Laskey

Moon Man

Nen

Otero

Pablo Sandoval

Q–come on.

Reuschel

Swift

Tomargo

Uribe

Von Hayes

Willie Mays

X–nope

Yastremski

Zito

    thx for that box from 1970 wild game with Reds, Loo re: Jim Johnson. Reds were still in Crosley then.
    bobby tolan was in OF for Reds. Always liked him. He was the guy who hit the ball that Mays caught above the fence at Stick with the collision with Bobby Bonds.

      Good stuff, Warren. Didn’t know Tolan hit that ball. When he came up with the Cards, I heard he was faster than Brock…
