Do The 2009 Angels Need a Nickname?

Headed into the ALCS, people talk about small ball like it is still 2005 and ignore that Kendry Morales hit 34 HR thru the marine layer. They bash the bullpen as ESPN's gods of baseball Ellsbury and Pedroia hand Brian Fuentes yet another save. They're thought of by many as MIckey's Hackers while Chone Figgins and Bobby Abreu walk as much as anyone in the league. Is there some slogan that could sum up this truly great baseball team?
