    The New Most Ridiculous Minor League Baseball Team Name



    The New Orleans Baby Cakes, ladies and gentleman. (Baby Cakes)
    Move over Hartford Yard Goats, Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp, Savannah Bananas and El Paso Chihuahuas — the New Orleans Baby Cakes have come to claim the crown of most unbelievable but actual Minor League Baseball team.

    On Tuesday, the New Orleans Zephyrs — the Miami Marlins Triple-A affiliate — announced that they’d rebranded themselves as the Baby Cakes, a move that, if nothing else, got people talking. It immediately became a trending topic on Twitter, where was there no shortage of opinions about the team’s new look, which is inspired by actual New Orleans king cakes, which are popular at Mardi Gras and often have a small plastic baby inside of them.

    This baby, though? Looks like he could be Negan’s youngest underling, popping out of a cake ready to bash your skull in. Or maybe just hit a baseball. It’s no surprise that the Baby Cakes have a lot of new merchandise and some different jerseys to wear, both of which celebrate the new identity.

    new orleans n-words would've been more appropriate

    less offensive, and very represenatative of the general new orleans population.....

    personally, I like the "New Orleans Beer-Drinking Floatin' on a Door Skanks" .... but I guess that'd be hard to fit on their uniforms....

    ah, the good ol Katrina days:
