Are you ready for fantasy baseball? New York Mets fans can get excited with these Mets-related team names.
Few times of the year are as exciting as the start of baseball season. However, the season itself can be a slog, especially for New York Mets fans wanting to keep busy.
This is the reason why fantasy baseball exists. While it is fun to put yourself in the General manager’s seat and see if you can beat your friends by setting the best lineup over the course of the season, you probably put more thought into one aspect than any other – what to name your team.
Switching gears for a moment, the team here at Rising Apple is getting in on the fun this year and your favorite contributors will put bragging rights on the line in the Rising Apple Fantasy League.
Although the league isn’t open or viewable to the public, it will be my pleasure to keep you updated regularly on RAFL standings and key matchups throughout the summer. As we were discussing the creation of this league, we started to talk about what the best Mets-related fantasy team names are, which led to the creation of this post.
The consensus is that there is one Mets fantasy name to rule them all: Bartolo Colon. It’s beautiful, strong and dynamic.
It can symbolize Young Bart – worry free and with a successful career ahead of him. It can refer to Big Sexy Bart – masher of taters and ground ball fielding legend. It can be an homage to Retired Bart – living his best life in paradise.
Maybe you want to use a play on a current player’s name or something from Mets history. Here are some other Mets fantasy team names that you can use as inspiration for your league this year:
You Don’t Mess with the Johan
The Wright Stuff
Behind the Bag!
Shea La Vie
The Hospital for Special Surgery
What’s in a Rhame?
Chef Nimmo’s Cooking School
Did It All for the Mookie
Plaia’s Gonna Plai
