Please welcome Mr. Cheerios to the Cubs as we have some fun with anagrams

A different look at names on the Cubs’ 40-man roster.

It’s been a while since we had the offseason time to look at the Cubs’ 40-man roster in anagram form — last year, with the lockout there really wasn’t time to do this.

So I thought, as we get closer to Spring Training, I’d post these humorous anagrams for everyone on the Cubs’ 40-man roster, including the recently-signed Michael Fulmer.

I’ve given away the identity of the Cub in the headline with the photo. See if you can figure out the others. I’ve put them in alphabetical order by anagram and added some punctuation to some of them. As always, I have used the fantastic Internet Anagram Server.

Some of these would make good rock band names. And I think we should all call Eric Hosmer “Mr. Cheerios.”

Sadly, two 40-man roster Cubs are excluded from this fun: Ben Brown and Seiya Suzuki generated no anagrams.
