Hey, We Like the Name, Too!

The Hardball Times had a fun feature today: Writer Chris Jaffe listed in order, 1-30, his favorite team names in baseball. The D-backs got a nice, high ranking on the list:

2. Arizona Diamondbacks. It’s distinctive, relates to the region, and sounds cool. Depending on the mood I’m in, I might rank this one over Seattle. It’s between those two of the top slot, and then there’s a gap before the rest.

Right on! The regional tie to the team name is exactly what I’ve always thought was cool about it as well.

THT’s top five: Mariners, Diamondbacks, Rangers, Rockies and Brewers.
