In which we examine some of the many possible japes and puns that take advantage of a particular third baseman's eminently punnable name.

Smasche the laws of physics!
Smasche the laws of physics!
Mitchell Leff

Because Punnable is totally a word. Cody Asche's name, of course, containing the syllable "ash," which can of course be manipulated by Grammar Scientists to be more funner. Or less funner, depending on your tolerance for bad puns!

1. Masche'd Potatoes - Could be easily used in case he Masches a dinger.

2. Swaschebuckled - Beating the Pirates!

2. Basche Brother - Would be better if Asche's brother also played baseball.

3. Crasche Davis - If he ever becomes a minor league catcher.

4. George Wascheington - His dingers could cross the Delaware.

5. Jobs Casche Hope - Ten years ago...

6. Hoban Wascheburn - He's a leaf on the wind.

7. Trasche Can - 0 for 5, 3Ks, 2 GIDPs, 3 Errors, TOOTBLAN

8. Daschecam - Went to Russia and saw a meteor.

9. Mt. Raschemore - He'll be up there with Mike Aschemidt and Maikel Fraschenco someday.

10. Corned Beef Hasche - He'd be an All-Star in the Irish Leagues.

11. Flasche Photography - A walkoff under the lights sets the flashbulbs poppin'!

12. Coal Asche - Millions of years from now, future societies will use Asche memoriabilia for fuel. But not Hammels the trader to are troops.

13. Benghasche - Thanks Obama.

14. Plascheido Polanco - At least he's not Pedro Fascheliz!

15. Emerald Asche Borer - Not only is he singlehandedly destroying an entire species of tree, he's also boring.
