Baseball Surnacronyms: The Home Game

First off, this is so not an original idea ... Bill James came up with the game, and my friend Dave Mlodinoff came up with the term "surnacronyms."

Here's what I came up with for Captain Derek Jeter:

Exists

Enrage

A few more after the jump, and I hope this gives you something to chew on while waiting for the modest little sporting event later this weekend ...

Chone Figgins: Flexible Infielder, Good Glove, Is Not Slow (Mlodinoff came up with this one)

Craig Biggio: Began In Gear, Grew Into Outfielder

Jason Giambi: Grew In Artificial Manner By Injection (Mlodinoff)

and this, from someone named Dwight, tickled me ...
