Please Welcome Archive Troll To The Cubs (or, Fun With Anagrams)

Time for a little preseason fun.

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

Thanks to Josh for reminding me in this morning's MLB Bullets that it was time to do this again.

It's been a couple of years since the last one of these, so there are quite a few new names to anagram. As always, I've used the Internet Anagram Server to create these Cubs roster anagrams for all the players on the 40-man roster -- with one exception, see below.

See if you can figure out which Cubs player matches each of these anagrams. I've added some punctuation in some of them to make them funnier, and mixed them up by putting them in alphabetical order by anagram. I've pretty much given away the player anagrammed in the headline to this post by the photo. See if you can figure out the others.

Note: Matt Szczur isn't included -- the two z's made it impossible for the anagram server to find any anagrams.
