    Give the Reds' bullpen a nickname

    With the strong bullpen this year, that group needs a nickname. I was thinking with their height, it should be something tree related. So to steal a name from The Lord of the Rings, how about "The Fangorn Forest"?
    Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    When the trade for Latos happened I was thinking they should of named the starters "The Regulators".... from Young Guns.

    "We regulate the scoring in these here parts".

    They could even play that old song that starts up with a yell

    "REGULATORS.........MOUND UP"! Ok, I changed it from mount to mound.

    I really like this one. It would get my vote.


    Speaking of songs....how about stealing one from the 1990 rap....

    Well, if Chapmann moves into the bullpen, here's my nerdy star wars based nomintation:

    C-3M-B (Chapman - Massett, Marshall, Madson-bray)

    All though 2012 world series bullpen would be my favorite if it has last power.
