I Stole This Idea

Hey, intrepid bloggers can't come up with totally original stuff every day, right?

The guy calling himself "Score Bard" over at Baseball Toaster has begun doing roster anagrams, along with little poetry for each team.

I stumbled on this yesterday, when he did the Rangers -- today it's the Mariners (I particularly like "A Zen Elf Hendrix"- Felix Hernandez), and figured I'd beat him to the punch with my take on the Cubs.

These are courtesy of the wonderful Internet Anagram Server.

Note that the server could not come up with a single anagram for "Rich Hill" other than "Rich Hill". I did do all this anagram work myself.
