Best Fantasy Baseball Team Names (2021 Fantasy Baseball)

Jim spends the offseason studying every free-agent addition. He surveys the offseason hot stove and examines how every transaction will reshape the fantasy landscape. After tireless and exhaustive hours of preparation studying swinging strike rates, barrel rates, Statcast outliers, BABIP anomalies, and more, Jim drafts what he believes is a championship-caliber assembly of can’t-miss bats, elite closers, breakout pitchers, and sleepers. Despite all this, all of Jim’s league-mates continue to clown him.

Why is that?

The answer is most likely because Jim’s fantasy baseball team name is still called “Jim’s Team.”

Don’t be like Jim.

Here are 10 fantasy baseball team names to give your squad some swagger. Note, if you’re looking for some egregious NSFW content, you probably won’t find it here, but I’ve been known to be a habitual line stepper, so not all of these will qualify as wholesome either. While I don’t take personal credit for all of these, it would be a public disservice to not help a good chap like Jim out.

10. Cruz’n Fo’ Pitches

Well, that happened fast. Yes, this one verges on NSFW, but it does a great job slapping some nice on a slice of naughty while simultaneously paying homage to one of baseball’s ageless wonders.

9. Hidden Ball Tricks

I mean, there’s a 14-year-old in all of us, somewhere.

8. Busty Posers

Full disclosure: I used this name for numerous teams, and it almost certainly is the reason I won titles when I did.

7. Acuña Matata

Lame? Probably. but the joyous references to a song about living carefree just seem to capture the feeling of baseball in the summertime perfectly. Nabbing Ronald Acuña with a Top-2 pick helps, too.

6. Pinot Biggio

Whether you’re referencing the elder or the younger Biggio, this one ages like a fine wine.

5. The Tragically WHIP

This one is for the hip crowd.

4. Kershawshank Redemption

Clayton would surely approve after 2020’s long-awaited ring.

3. D’Arnaud Crying In Baseball!

First, it’s a great baseball movie, and this is a reference to an iconic baseball scene. Second, the ghost of Travis d’Arnaud refuses to die.

2. deGromegorgen

A Stranger Things reference is a win for everybody, which makes this one a hit with the WAR crowd.

1. This… because we all know the Coronavirus isn’t going to let baseball have a completely normal 2021.
