NameMyBlankFilter: Fantasy Baseball Team name, with a girlie twist.

I'm the only girl in a fantasy league with a bunch of my guy friends. I need to come up with a hilarious and/or ass-kicking name. References can include the female gender, Yiddish, or the Red Sox. Or none of the above.

I know some people hate these kind of questions, but I'm coming up blank and know the HiveMind can come up with some great answers!

Silver Bullets was the name of a short lived all woman minor league team. You could borrow that name and give them a nod.

Explanation for Silver Bullets: It was the first attempt at a professional all woman baseball team since the folding of the woman's baseball league in the '50's. So it was pretty gutsy for the women to walk out on the diamond to play against all men teams. They existed for a few years in the 90's.

Or for throw away suggestions: Diamond Girl, Throws like a Boy, and the blatantly obvious, Red Fishnet Stockings (or plays on that).

You could also make a Jean Yawkey reference.

Seconding "There's No Crying in Baseball." Vetoing anything to do with menstruation or breasts, because you're not an 11-year-old boy.

Olinerd, you genius! I adore The Tessies! I wasn't going to bother with a fantasy team this year, but that's so great it makes me want to.

My team was the Blue Sox (or Blue Stockings) and we played, of course, at Sashay Stadium. I think hosiery is a good bet or maybe something like Sirens or Furies - women from myth that you wouldn't want to screw with.

Olinard: I picked out the name Tessie's Team for my team as part of a Red Sox fan league. Thought I was being original, but kidsleepy can steal it if she wants.

I love the Tessie reference, but not everyone in my league will get it. I ended up going with Victorious Secret (though now I'm dying to make a Future Mrs. Ellsbury jersey...).
