Over on Bronx Banter, the quite estimable Cliff Corcoran has produced a list of the 25 least estimable Yankees of the past 20 years. Good reading, though for the life of us we can’t figure out how Pat Kelly failed to make his cut of failures. We all have our favorite unfavorites, I suppose.

In the interest of comedy, we present our top 10 funniest names of the same period:

10. Cecilio Guante
9. Paul Assenmacher
8. Hensley Meulens
7. Bob Shirley
6. Jeff Moronko (forgot about him, didn’t ya?)
5. Andy Stankiewicz
4. Wally Whitehurst
3. Eric Plunk
2. Steve Balboni
1. Kevin Mmahat

What are yours?

  • If we were going by nicknames, I don’t see how you could leave out Hideki “Fat Pussy Toad” Irabu.
