    Hope this one hasn't been done already...

    Daryl Strawberry

    Pie traynor

    That's all I could think of now, but I'm all in.

    Probably been done many times before, but I've never seen it, and as I love word games, I'll add Pete Hamm, Bob Lemon and the 'grain trio' of Johnny Oates, Sam Rice and Zack Wheat.

    That's great!

    How about Dusty Baker and Dennis Cook?

    Would Rob Deer count as venison?

    Chili Davis and Sean Berry are players that have food in their name. I'm not sure what other people have food in their names, but these fill the bill.

    Not making this up!

    Herman Franks' (the All-Food Team's Manager) General Manager was Salty Saltwell. 1B Don Pepper got into 4 games with the Detroit Tigers in 1966. There was also an OF, Ray Pepper, who played in St. Louis for 5 years in the 30s.

    Beany Jacobson pitched from 1904-07.

    Bobby Wine played third, and was later the third base coach for the Phillies.

    How about Todd Coffey and George Creamer? Or do you prefer your Joe Black?

    Wally Berger was a good outfielder for the Braves and Reds back in the 30s. And since we know this sandwich guy, I had to look up Charlie Hamburg, who played LF for the Louisville Colonels in 1890.

    Noodles Hahn set some pitching records for the Reds around the turn of the previous century.

    For dessert: How about something Sweet. (Rick Sweet caught for the Padres, Mets and Mariners in the late 70s/early 80s.) But I was thinking about Candy Maldonado, who could be brought to you by John "The Candy Man" Candelaria. Or maybe Coco Crisp.

    Very good!! I think you've got it!

    We can make soup from Milt Stock, a side dish of Billy Bean, Jesse 'the Crab' Burkett, Rabbit Maranville and Chip Hale.

    For dessert, we have Taffy Wright.

    If you want to go the animal route, don't forget Goose Gossage, Ducky Medwick, Turkey Stearnes.
    Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.

    Mule Suttles, though I don't know anyone who would eat a mule unless they had nothing else.

    We mustn't forget "The Georgia Peach," or Catfish Hunter; a side of Chris "Spuds" Sabo...with Pepper Martin.

    Carl Furillo, better known as The Reading Rifle, was nicknamed "Skoonj" which comes from scungilli, the Italian word for a plate of snails. I would eat those (and have) rather than a mule any day.

    I'd settle for the all-fish team of Tim Salmon, Ralph Garr, Mike Trout, Sid Bream, Catfish Hunter, Mike Carp, George Haddock, Art Herring, Brian Bass, Jess Pike, Bobby Sturgeon, and Marlin Stuart.

    People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring. -Rogers Hornsby

    Vinegar Bend Mizell would love to be part of the nickname list...
    "Herman Franks to Sal Yvars to Bobby Thomson. Ralph Branca to Bobby Thomson to Helen Rita... cue Russ Hodges."

    No love here yet for Herb Hash? The man arguably had both a first and last name comprised of foods.
