Good News For People Who Like Bad Names

Exciting news, sports fans: the Yankees have claimed RH reliever Brian Schlitter [1] from the Cubs. I can’t remember who Chicago was playing at the time – maybe the Mets, possibly the Dodgers – but I remember taking note of Schlitter during a game last season and thinking that the announcer, whoever he was, ought to be going very, very carefully.


I would like to start brainstorming now in preparation for the coming season. On Twitter, SNY’s own @OGTedBerg [3] has already offered up “It’s a Schlitt Storm!” and “This game has gone down the Schlitter.” @d_limonene [4] suggested the phrase “Schlitt the bed.” To which I would also like to add:


Anyway, one day — maybe in April, maybe July, possibly September — John Sterling is going to slip up on this, and it is going to be beautiful. Yes, apparently I’m 12 tonight.
