The internet came apart at the seams when John Travolta called singer Idina Menzel "Adele Dazeem" during the Oscars Sunday night.

Slate.com took the frenzy to a whole new level with The Adele Dazeem Name Generator widget.

We thought it might be fun to see how Travolta might butcher the Red Sox players names if he were asked to announce the starting lineup at Fenway Park. Here's one version of the batting order Travoltified:

Ladies and gentlemen, now batting for the Boston Red Sox ...

1. Skye Knight (with a hard K)
2. Dawson Pozorter
3. Donald Orteez
4. Mark Nelseem
5. Danyal Nicheems
6. Braiden Brazent
7. Wayne Migiller
8. Alfred Parkinsmack
9. Jamie Berzy

Starting pitcher: Jan Lezwis

Translated back to the correct pronunciations:

1. Shane Victorino
2. Dustin Pedroia
3. David Ortiz
4. Mike Napoli
5. Daniel Nava
6. Xander Bogaerts
7. Will Middlebrooks
8. A.J. Pierzynski
9. Jackie Bradley Jr.

Starting pitcher: Jon Lester
