- A guardian is a defender, protector, or keeper. Guardians are selfless; they look out for those who need help or safety. This fits with "Defend the Land", "Rally Together", and other past Cleveland sports slogans.

This did not age well at all

How about the Ruddy Ducks?

The ruddy duck (Oxyura jamaicensis) is dramatic in its colorful breeding plumage with its bright blue bill. The Lake Erie and Lake Ontario shorelines are the eastern extent of this stifftail duck’s breeding range, giving Ohio birders a chance for great viewing opportunities of this duck’s courtship, which includes bold postures and strutting movements.

(Jose Ramirez is also known for bold postures and strutting movements, BTW).

The other entry in the bird category is the Woodcocks.

Another bird that can be difficult to find because of its secretive nature and camouflaged markings, the American woodcock (Scolopax minor) prefers forested thickets and damp fields. Ohio is at the core of this bird’s summer breeding range, giving birders a great opportunity to see its mating dance and add this funky bird to their life list.

Local microbrewery enters the naming fray

Here it is, the most banal of all possible names. Suspiciously derivative, utterly vanilla, unevocative in the Extreme...

And absolutely perfect.

Don't worry, you'll warm right up to this room-temperature epiphany.
In no time at all, we'll all be thinking "I can't believe we ever called them anything else!"

Is there an "official" channel to submit name suggestions anywhere? A petition of some sort, anything?

It at least *sounds* like a baseball name. I like it FAR better than Spiders, Rocks, Commodores, or Steamers, that's for sure. Doubtless would be called "Munis." Not the worst by any means.

I.. like it? Just sounds good. No idea what the hell a Municipal is, other than a court, but that wouldn't be a first for a baseball team name. Although as I process it, may be a better basketball team name. Another idea: Cleveland Brew Works, since that seems to be what Ohio City consists of any more.
