OOTP11 Player Name Thread

Gotta have one of these, anyone with any interesting player names pop up?
In my league I have a catcher named Barry Sanders. But unlike the real Barry he's slow as heck and doesn't play for Detroit.

My personal favorite comes from OOTPX. Henry Henry. Was quite the dominant closer. I also had a 2nd baseman named Peter Parker.... I had to give him a nickname.

I saw a fictional player for a team in Cleveland called Serrano. Not quite Pedro Cerrano from Major League but an amusing coincidence nonetheless.

Charlie Kelly. Now is hitting top of the order, a 22 year old star. Not from Philly though.

The top player in my league is a catcher with the name Harry "Balls" Wagner. Yep the computer gave him that nickname. There's another pretty good outfielder in my league named Andy Wagner who's 2 years younger and also has the nickname Balls. So obviously in my league these 2 guys are the Balls Brothers.

And evidently Carlos Beltran owns my Seattle franchise, but he just died midseason.
In fact two team owners died in 4 days during late July.

Would have been better if he played "sloppy" 2nd base.

On another hockey related tangent, I did have an Ed Belfour and Daniel Briere in my OOTPX league.

When was he born? Sounds like someone had overly Democratic parents in the mid 90's!
