I know it isn't the correct spelling, but I think "Wrigly" and "Wriggly" should count....

Why wouldn't we just accept "Ryglee" then? Heck, why not just accept anything you type?

The line goes "If you build it, they will come." Last time I checked, there was a whole team in the movie, not just one guy. ;-)

"If you build it, HE will come", not they. In the end, it's all about bringing one man, not the whole team.

All I could come up with for Brett's bat was 'pitch.' Knew it wasn't quite right, but couldn't get there.

Come on, no X? There's so many possibilities.

X= Xander Bogaerts

X= Xavier Nady

X = strikeout in a box score

He absolutely did not punch him. Zimmer charged at Pedro, and Pedro grabbed him by the head and threw him to the ground. Very different than punching an old man in the face.
