Cubs minor leaguer wins "Best Name" award

There have been some great names in the illustrious history of baseball, but Rock Shoulders has to come in near the top.

Just think, his last name "Shoulders" rolls across the top of his back as if to confirm that they are, indeed, shoulders.

Not to mention how easily both names flow off the tongue.

And we're not the only ones enamored with the prospect's name.

Shoulders, a Cubs first baseman currently playing on the Boise Hawks, won Minor League Baseball's "Moniker Madness" competition for best name in the minors.

His given name is actually Roderick, but we agree Rock is better.

The 20-year-old had to beat out guys like Bear Bay, Caleb Bushyhead, Rougned Odor and Tuffy Gosewisch.

Wish him congratulations on Twitter @RockBigFly24.

Who are the Bulls? The team that beat Cleveland and Toronto or lost to Dallas, Minnesota and Milwaukee?

That's the question Bulls fans are currently asking and the one Bulls Insider Vincent Goodwill posed in the video above.

The Bulls have had impressive wins and shocking losses, but neither of those should be surprising at this point. The Bulls are, as Goodwill put it, consistently inconsistent.

The first half of the season has proven that Dwyane Wade still has some memorable moments left to give and Jimmy Butler continues to approach superstardom. On the downside, the drama surrounding Rajon Rondo has meant the 'three alphas' that were hyped up in the preseason haven't been the dynamic trio some Bulls fans had hoped.

Coach Fred Hoiberg doesn't have the shooters his system needs, but can he still rally the troops and get something out of Rondo?

Watch the video to see Goodwill's look back on the Bulls' first half and what could be ahead.
