    Re: Tribute rename vote for 2017 draft class

    OK, based on the votes we'll have one rename this year for Alan Stokes - bit of a tricky one as with his horrible RA I'm guessing he won't be staying at SS...

    My suggestion is Jim "Zipper" Zapp. The guy played corner outfield (and not very well at that), so I'm kinda projecting that's where Stokes may end up. They have similar builds (both 6'2", Stokes 207 lbs & Zipper 208 lbs), and with Stokes having high BA and SL it seems a good match offensively - Zapp had a .305 career average and was consistently in the elite of both HRs and TBs in the league he played in.

    If anyone has any objections or better suggestions, I'm certainly open to them. I'll leave this here for the rest of the week and do the rename on Friday if there's no comments.

    OK, Alan Stokes has been renamed to Jim "Zipper" Zapp, and included on the official list - as an outfielder.
