The agony of picking out the perfect, witty name for your fantasy baseball team can drive a person insane.

My thoughts, exactly, Evan. 

As a way to cut the noise, we've assembled some of Twitter's best offerings, as well as some offerings of our own. 

Many people like to use team names, player names and the many acts that occur in every game as a means to begin coming up with their clever fantasy baseball team name. 

I, for one, am a fan of puns. 

Here are a few of my own lame attempts, which will certainly fall among the "worst" on this list:

  • The Sean Doolittle Handymen
  • I'm Coco for Coco Crisp's Coco Puffs
  • Joba the Hutts (Joba Chamberlain)
  • Reds Dead Redemption
  • ARod's Roger Clemensy Appeal

One of my coworkers here at Bleacher Report came up with this one, which I thought was pretty clever, so we'll stash this in the "best" portion of the list:

  • The Jason GiaMVPs

Twitter is always a great resource for topics like this. I'll let you decide which ones are the best and which are the worst.

Whatever you decide to name your fantasy baseball team, make sure to have fun and don't take it so seriously that you start throwing stuff.
