    "Stuck in the Middle" by Stealer's Wheel

    Well I don't know why I came here tonight,
    I got the feeling that something ain't right, (the attitude of a lot of Reds fans)
    I'm so scared in case I fall off my chair,
    And I'm wondering how I'll get down the stairs,
    Clowns to the left of me,
    Jokers to the right, (the pitching staff)
    here I am,
    Stuck in the middle with you.

    Yes I'm stuck in the middle with you,
    And I'm wondering what it is I should do,
    It's so hard to keep this smile from my face,
    Losing control, yeah, I'm all over the place, (the pitching staff this month)
    Clowns to the left of me, Jokers to the right,
    Here I am, stuck in the middle with you.

    Well you started out with nothing,
    And you're proud that you're a self made man, (Mr. Lindner)
    And your friends, they all come crawlin, (we the fans)
    Slap you on the back and say,
    Please.... Please..... ("please spring for some starting pitching, Mr. Lindner")

    Trying to make some sense of it all,
    But I can see that it makes no sense at all,
    Is it cool to go to sleep on the floor,
    'Cause I don't think that I can take anymore
    Clowns to the left of me, Jokers to the right,
    Here I am, stuck in the middle with you.

    Well you started out with nothing,
    And you're proud that you're a self made man,
    And your friends, they all come crawlin,
    Slap you on the back and say,
    Please.... Please.....

    Well I don't know why I came here tonight,
    I got the feeling that something ain't right,
    I'm so scared in case I fall off my chair,
    And I'm wondering how I'll get down the stairs,
    Clowns to the left of me,
    Jokers to the right, here I am,
    Stuck in the middle with you,
    Yes I'm stuck in the middle with you,
    Stuck in the middle with you. (the middle of the NL Central, that is)

    Okay I Believe You, But My Tommy Gun Don't -Brand New

    I'm heaven sent,
    don't you dare forget
    I am all you've ever wanted,
    what all the other boys all promised
    Sorry I told
    I just needed you to know

    I think in decimals and dollars
    I am the cause to all your problems
    Shelter from cold
    We are never alone
    Coordinate brain and mouth
    Then ask me what it's like to have myself so figured out
    I wish I knew

    I hope this songs starts a craze,
    the kind of song that ignites the airways
    The kind of song that makes people glad to be where they are
    with who ever they're there with
    This is war
    Every line is about who I don't write about anymore
    Hope you come down with something they can't diagnose,
    don't have the cure for
    Holding on to your grudge
    Oh it's so hard to have someone to love
    Keeping quiet is hard
    'Cause you can't keep a secret if it never was a secret to start
    At least pretend you didn't wanna get caught

    We're consentratin' on fallin' apart
    We were contenders, now throwin' the fight
    I just wanna believe, I just wanna believe, I just wanna believe in us

    Oh we're so c-c-c-c-c-controversial
    We are entirely smooth
    We fit to the truth
    We are the best at what we do
    And these are the words you wish you wrote down
    This is the way you wish your voice sounds,
    handsome and smart
    Oh, my tongue's the only muscle on my body that works harder than my heart
    And it's all from watching TV
    and from speeding up my breathing
    Wouldn't stop if I could
    Oh it hurts to be this good
    You're holding on to your grudge
    Oh it hurts to always have to be honest with the one that you love
    Oh so let it go

    We're consentratin' on fallin' apart
    We were contenders, now throwin' the fight
    I just wanna believe, I just wanna believe, I just wanna believe in us

    We're consentratin' on fallin' apart
    We were contenders, now throwin' the fight
    I just wanna believe, I just wanna believe, I just wanna believe in us

    This is the craze only we can bestow
    This is the price you pay for loss of control
    This is the break in the ground
    This is the closest of calls
    This is the reason you're alone, this is the reason you fall!

    We're consentratin' on fallin' apart
    We were contenders, now throwin' the fight
    I just wanna believe, I just wanna believe, I just wanna believe...

    We're consentratin' on fallin' apart
    We were contenders, now throwin' the fight
    I just wanna believe, I just wanna believe, I just wanna believe in us

    Hey Johnny, you beat me to Stuck In The Middle. My thoughts exactly. Except my version would be by The Ranch. Now I'll go with Clutterbilly by The Ranch. I don't know why, it just sounds appropriate.

    Pitching to Contact Today

    With apologies to Otis Redding and Steve Cropper

    Sitting with a hotdog and bun
    Know I'll be angry when the first inning comes.
    Watching pitches roll in
    And I watch 'em fly away again, yeah.


    (Chorus)
    Well they’re pitching to contact today
    Feeling the game slowly slip away.
    But they’re still pitching to contact today
    Wasting time.


    Slow fastball heading towards ya’
    Then headed out Right Field way
    'Cause they’ve got no stuff to pitch for
    And pitchers with no stuff gotta pay.

    So they’re just...(repeat chorus)


    Look like nothing's gonna change
    Everything still remains the same
    They can’t win throwing how people want them to do
    So I guess they’ll remain the same.

    Now pitcher’s sittin there resting his bones
    Home run whiplash won't leave him alone
    Eighty six pitches he’s thrown
    Just to make a five-plus ERA his home

    Now, they’re just...(repeat chorus)
    "The problem with strikeouts isn't that they hurt your team, it's that they hurt your feelings..." --Rob Neyer

    "The single most important thing for a hitter is to get a good pitch to hit. A good hitter can hit a pitch that’s over the plate three times better than a great hitter with a ball in a tough spot.”
    --Ted Williams
