The Sox got off to a strong start, building a small division lead in May before the Minnesota Twins knocked them out of first place. They hung around until a July slump pushed them back 10 games. But even then, they were on the season. They were a home-run machine, with all nine starting players clubbing 16 or more homers on the season. The pitching was strong too, with young starters Cliff Lee and C. Sabathia as their one-two punch. The Indians got off to a weak start while the Sox took the division — and the league — by storm.
On August 1, Cleveland was just and But where the Brewers stop at the beer, we celebrate the month of October, when baseball is at its zenith and beer is at its most appreciated.

New York Mets: Queens Capitals. Among some circles, especially culinary ones, Queens is considered the international capital of the world. Let's turn the Metropolitans into something both hyper-local and cosmopolitan -- just like Queens. And what better symbol of that than the unisphere, which was constructed for the New York World's Fair and now resides in Flushing Meadows, Queens? Embrace it. Be the villain. Oakland Athletics: Oakland Green Beans. The Athletics name had already been used in two cities before the team got to Oakland.
It's time they had their own identity. Cleveland's baseball team was once named after Nap Lajoie , so this team should be named after Billy Beane -- and that sweet green color that is all their own.

Philadelphia Phillies: Philadelphia Franklins. C'mon, Philadelphia. You can do better than that. How about getting inspiration from the great Philadelphian and founder of electricity, Benjamin Franklin? Pittsburgh Pirates: Pittsburgh Stars.

Because of safety concerns, that program was phased out, but now they'll forever live on as the representative of the team.
Seattle Mariners: Seattle King Salmon. Let's keep it aquatic, with a fish that is unique to the Pacific Northwest. Of course, we are also referencing the all-time great Mariner King Felix with the name, too. There aren't enough teams that wear green or orange. So, let's get positively Floridian and embrace the juice. Texas Rangers: Texas Cattlemen. Toronto Blue Jays: Toronto Bats. There are about eight species of bats that live in Ontario, and that's more than enough to make the baseball pun live on forever.
Washington Nationals: Washington Cherry Blossoms. More teams should be named after beautiful flowers.
