Does any player in baseball have a funnier name for their position than Brewers prospect Grant Balfour. What could Abbot and Costello have done using that in their routine?

(Bottom of Seventh Inning of 2-2 game, 2 out and runner at 2nd...pitching change situation)

Manager: Hey Ump! I want to make a some changes here.
Ump: Okay, What ya got?
Manager: I am going to Grant Balfour for this batter.
Ump: You want to grant ball four for this batter? You sure?
Manager: Yeah that's what I got
Ump: Okay, Batter go on down to first.
Manager: What did you do that for Blue?
Ump: You said you wanted to grant ball four for that batter!
Manager: Yeah but I didn't want to walk him!!!!

Could you imagine having Grant Balfour and Bob Walk as your relievers?
