Recently, Diane Firstman, creator and curator of the fabulous Value Over Replacement Grit baseball site on ESPN Sweetspot Network and a favorite of mine, was kind enough to anagram the names of some current and former Milwaukee Brewers players and managers. She made quite a few for the Brewers Bar to use, so this will be split up into a series. Part One was posted last week.
Not sure what an anagram is? An anagram is created by rearranging the letters of a word or phrase to produce a new word or phrase, using all the original letters exactly once. Those good at constructing them can arrange things in a way that reflects somehow on the original subject.
Here's an example: (this is one I tried, so as not to waste one of Diane's) "Lad Afire Forgo" – would be the Brewers relief pitcher, Alfredo Figaro. Another helpful set of examples would be the answers, published also last week (Here)

This week's list features 7 anagrams (without answers). See how many of these you can figure out, and I'll have the answers posted sometime on Thursday! Have fun!

Once again, many, many thanks to Diane Firstman for lending one of her great talents to The Brewers Bar in providing anagrams! For more on her work, here is her bio and other information. And make sure you check out her site, – where you will be welcomed by the phrase "We are the VORG. Replacement is futile." You also can find her on twitter (appropriately under the neame @dianagram). She's pretty famous.
