    Ode to 2006

    This came to me while driving home today. I don't really know why. I thought I would post it in fun and to show what a terrible nerd I am. It kind of describes the season. Enjoy (or not, I don't care really).

    They say we're the great pretenders
    pretending that nothing is wrong
    but our "D" has no range
    and our line-ups are strange
    and our pitchers are left in too long
    our pitchers are left in too long.

    They say we're the great pretenders
    prentending that we're in the race
    but our line-up is old
    our best hitters are cold
    and our bullpen is just a disgrace
    our bullpen is just a disgrace.

    (All-star break musical interlude here)

    They say we're the great pretenders
    pretending for the wild card
    our acquisitions are sore
    and now we can't score
    we need some more guys who go yard
    we need some more guys who go yard

    They say we're the great pretenders
    just trying to hang on till the end
    though we rooted our best
    they blew it out west
    I guess we're rebuilding again

    Ya know, you've got a point with this ode. You didn't write it down while you were driving did you?

    Great ode. Really sums up my feelings about this year so far, too.

    Actually, I'm not sure we really need "some more guys who go yard". I think we still have plenty of those... Perhaps you could replace that line with "Say goodbye to that sweet wild card, say goodbye to that sweet wild card."

    And then, maybe add another stanza that goes something like this:

    Our man Wayne is a great pretender
    He got Bronson and Hatte and Phillips!
    Then he dealt Kearns for pitching
    And now he keeps itching
    To pick up more middle relievers
    To pick up more middle relievers

    Okay... it needs work. My apologies. I still like yours.
