Umpires have funny names, I say

I'm sometimes struck by the silly names of major league baseball umpires. If I were going to put together a crew with the funniest names, I would choose:

Tim Timmons at first
Fieldin Culbreth at second
Kerwin Danley at third
and of course
Hunter Wendelstedt III calling balls and strikes.

And if it were a playoff game and there were two additional umpires down the left- and rightfield lines, I would pick Laz Diaz and CB Bucknor.

I might put Hernandez down the left field line...then we'd have an Angel in the Outfield.

If I begin my final final today and find some curveball bowshit, I'm going to throw my laptop at the proctor and say:

"Regrettably, in the heat of the competition my emotions got the better of me."
