Fun with anagrams and the Royals roster

Years ago, someone at Royals Review put together a hilarious list* of anagrams of the Royals’ 40-man roster, yielding such classics as “Lo, Danger Ox!” and “Crime Horse.”.

Pictures from the Omaha division title celebration

The Omaha Storm Chasers spent one evening only as the OmaHogs, which was the runner-up in the fan vote for the new team name two years ago. It was “What If?” night, and the team’s magic number was just two. A win over 2nd-place Nashville would clinch Omaha’s 2nd consecutive division title. So in their …

Joe Posnanski is in Happy Valley, and has been for a few months. He is there to write a book about Joe Paterno.
