Phillies All-Time All Name Team

Saw that Philly Sports Daily just posted some of their favorite Phillies names through the years, so I thought I should dig up a piece I did a couple of years ago on isportacus and post it here. Here it is, the Phillies All-Time All-Name Team, the full 25 man roster. Please let me know in the comments anybody you think should have made the squad.

    I always thought Dick Sisler was deceptively dirty.

  2. Dan Koch says:

    Since frequently-used nicknames seems to be fair game, I’m surprised to see Puddin’ Head Jones and Granny Hamner missing from this list. Bonus points for being the left half of the Phillies infield for ten years.

  3. Hey Dan, good point. This is a tough lineup to crack, however. I don’t think Granny Hamner makes the squad, but I think Puddin Head probably does. WHo does he replace? Deacon van Buren, perhaps?

  4. Dan Koch says:

    Van Buren would be my pick, although the Van Buren Boys are not gonna like that:
