BP Unfiltered

The 2012 All-Backwards-Name Team

by Sam Miller

These are not players with two first names. These are players whose names would make more sense if they were switched.

8. Allen Craig
7. Brooks Conrad
6. Nyjer Morgan
5. Clete Thomas
4. Boone Logan
3. Tyson Ross
2. Darwin Barney
1. Clayton Richard

Apologies if you disagree, and I suspect Nyjer Morgan and Tyson Ross will be controversial selections. But obviously, this list is simply too important to entrust to a fan vote.
