Some Smoltzian Fun: The All-Apparel Team

I've been greatly enjoying John Smoltz's themed teams on Peachtree TV the past few nights. For those who don't get PTV, or haven't seen the games this week, the concept is this: each night, Smoltz picks a theme. Then, he and Ernie (and everyone else involved in the broadcast) try to think of players whose names fit that team. For instance, one night he did the "All-Body Part Team," featuring Elroy Face, Chase Headley, Rick Ankiel, and Tony Armas (who has 4 body parts in his name!).

Since this is an off day for the Braves, I thought we might have a little fun along those lines. My idea for a theme is the "All-Apparel Team." So every player should have a name reminiscent of some type of clothing. Here are the players I've come up with so far...

1B: Ty Wigginton
2B: Skip Schumaker
SS: Jeff Blauser
3B: Clete Boyer
LF: Ryan Braun
CF: Carlos Beltran
RF: Ty Cobb
C: Robby "Banana" Hammock
Bench:
Luis Polonia

SP: R.A. Dickey
Bullpen: Matt Capps, Jose Capellan, Chris Capuano, Chris Bootcheck

Manager: Cap Anson
Bench Coach: Larry Bowa

Most of these are pretty obvious. Do any of you guys have some more outside-the-box suggestions? Or if you prefer, offer another "theme" and we'll all try to add players that fit that theme.
