Hartford Yard Goats Have Best Name In Baseball, Are Channeling Hartford Whalers
When the New Britain Rock Cats decided to move their Double-A Minor League Baseball franchise to Hartford earlier this year, the first order of business of course was re-branding. The Colorado Rockies affiliate decided on a new name -- Yard Goats, and thus an awesome logo was produced.

The new logo colors are also an homage to the defunct NHL Hartford Whalers.

So I think we have a new best baseball nickname.
1. Hartford Yard Goats.
2. Montgomery Biscuits.
3. Lansing Lugnuts.
4. Albuquerque Isotopes.
5. Modesto Nuts.
Honorable mention: Columbia Blowfish (independent Coastal Plain League).
Fun fact: The team will play in the Dunkin' Donuts Goat Yard.
So as you can see above, the Yard Goats need a name for their mascot. I assume it will be a costumed goat of some kind, but yours doesn't have to be. So engage your brain and send it to @Sportsgrid or @Rickchand.
My vote is for a crumpled tin can by the name of Chewy.
