In the spirit of the Baseball Names II threads started by Edex, and Baseball III started by Bearcat500, post a major league baseball player's name using the FIRST letter of the LAST name of the posted player as the FIRST letter of the next FIRST name.

Example: Roger Maris
Mike Piazza

First letter of last name = first letter in first name.

Some rules:

NO CONSECUTIVE REPLIES TO THIS THREAD unless there has not been any activity in the previous 24 hours. In that case there will ONLY be one consecutive reply.

The player must have appeared in at least 10 major league games in the modern era (1902-current) Any commonly known name for a player will work, therefore Babe Ruth or George Herman Ruth would either be an acceptable answer as would either Richie or Dick Allen.

I'll start with:

Mark Buehrle

janilane - your poor choice to put others on your ignore list leads to your posting incorrectly - twice in the past two days. Your post of BIP ROBERTS is not correct, just like your post of HIDEO NOMO on the 23rd. It is necessary to see the previous post in order to post correctly in this and a number of other topics. Playing off last correct post - Bob Gibson.
