Most teams have one or two players on their rosters with really great names: The Giants have, the Yankees have and Didi Gregorious. But 2015, the A’s had who’d rank among the top 10 percent on a highly scientific ranking of all League monikers — and they added even more this offseason.
At least four new acquisitions prove Ahtyba Rubin Authentic Jersey that Oakland is trying not only to improve on the field, but also to monopolize the market on the sport’s best names.

There’s a tradition of Cuban Y names, but Yonder — who came to Oakland the same deal as Rzepczynski — might have the best of the bunch.
