Poll made.  BTW, you can vote for multiple entries if desired.

I would have voted for Out of Town Scoreboard b/c it sounds pretty cool, but the "Scoreboard" part doesn't really work. I went with The Competition.

I vote for "News from around the Majors". I dislike learning these cute names.

I also vote to have a referendum on the other cute names.  I miss the days of plain talk and common sense and am ill at ease with modern obfuscation.

Fair enough: option added to poll.

You know the reason that "news" hasn't been changed yet is exactly because I didn't want to "obfuscate" it.  The rest of the "cute" names seemed self-explanatory, but there are also very prominent subheadings underneath of each one with very clear explanations.  Did/do you really have trouble with those or were you just making a joke?

I was mostly joking but I do recall A CERTAIN POSTER WHO FOUND THEM CONFUSING and likely others who did not say anything.

Why is the bullpen an option?
I voted for "The Competition". I thought "The Press Box" was kind of cool, but only because it was my idea.

I listed all suggestions.  Yeah, The Bullpen kind of sucks.
