Yu Darvish's name lends itself to puns.

To paraphrase William Shakespeare, a fantasy baseball team by any other name smells much worse than a squad with an awesome one.

That’s how it goes, right? You know Shakespeare and his unmatched love for rotisserie leagues.

While it’s probably too early in the game to make important decisions such as what shortstop to take or will this be the year that Colby Rasmus breaks out (why must you toy with my heart like it’s some insignificant plaything?), it is time to name your team.

Sure, some owners like to keep it simple and stick with the same label. I branded my main club as “The Amazins” seven years ago and haven’t changed it since.

But that can get boring.

While scouring the Internet for funny team names it’s apparent that everyone fixates on incorporating a specific player’s name into a pun. Many are also unfit to print, but that’s another story.

This route might not be for you. Maybe you want to pay tribute to an interest outside of baseball. I’ve embraced my love for TV comedies by naming some of my past teams “Mr. Manager,” “The Darkest Timeline,” “Duke Silver Trio” and most recently “Troy and Abed in the Roto.”

With the help of FantasyTeamNames.net and BuzzFeed, here are some gems to consider if you prefer to keep it baseball related.
