Sometimes a name is made as a spoof but actually ends up becoming part of the team's makeup.
The Dodgers didn't name themselves the Bums.
The "Amazing" Mets were so named because they amazingly found ways to lose games when they first started playing.
Etc. Etc. Etc.
Personally I don't have a problem calling em Rags. It doesn't keep me up nights.
Absolutely. In any case, my grandfather was proud to be in the rag trade.
