(to the tune of "Bad Day" by Daniel Powter)

Where was the offense when needed the most
You started out great; then the season was toast
You got Brandon Phillips for a song
And Bronson and Hat; you could do no wrong
And where the hell did you get Ross

Hatteberg helped us to get over Case
It's easy to do when you sit in first place
We're kickin' some Card and Astro rear
You're lookin' like GM of the year
And then big Jimbo came aloooong...

And you made a bad trade
That's what the world says
You dumped Austin Kearns
And Felipe Lopez
You say we'll be fine
Don't mean to be rude
You got nothing back
Now we're totally screwed
You made a bad trade
The numbers don't lie
Thinkin' about it
Brings a tear to my eye
You really got played.....you made a bad trade

Now we need a shortstop and some bats
Hey how bout them two guys from the Nats
And get us more bad bullpen arms....

You made a bad trade
And we do not see
What you see in Maj
Do you like his goatee?
Or is it his hair
Or Billy Bray's butt
Give us a clue cause we
All think you're nuts
You made a bad trade
You pooped on our dreams
You'd trade Adam Dunn
For some magical beans
We're very afraid.....you made a bad trade

You only get one first impression and Majewski's was very good
Except his first one turned out to be his impression of Kerry Wood
That's not so goooood....noooonoooo....

So where were the bats when we needed 'em most
They're hangin' with Bowden out towards the East coast

Cause you made a bad trade
You have to admit
A couple of stars for a big pile of.....spit
You say it's not bad
A pretty good choice
If you believe that you are
So full of Royce
You made a bad trade
I think you will find
That teams will call you
Every time
So they can upgrade.....you made a bad trade

The trade will be good for the Reds going forward

lopez sucked as a SS and can't hit lefties

kearns is an average RF who will get overpaid in arbitration

Yeah I know that trade cost us a shot at the playoffsa and possible world series(SARACASM) Love the creativeness of the song , but the subject is old tired and based on a pathetic what if speculation.

Wow, I knew I should've included my usual disclaimer that I was exaggerating for comic effect. Still, as much as I want to like the trade --and agree that K&L had no future here-- I do wish they'd gotten more. Thanks for reading.

I agree; it's dated. You totally should have done a song parody about Brad Salmon. Even that is so five-minutes ago. You should have done a song parody about what Kriv-dawg had for lunch.

Come on man; live in the now.

Geez. How can people complain?
Gotta appreciate the work that goes into something like this.

Don't be discouraged, keep it up, Natty.
