    You Made A Bad Trade (song parody)

    (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

    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.
    2006 Redzone mock Draftee's- 1(st) Daniel Bard(redsox), 1(st sup)( Jordan Walden (Angels), 2(nd) rd.- Zach Britton(Orioles), 3(rd) Blair Erickson(Cardinals), 3(rd) Tim Norton( Yankees),(cuz its a Tim Hortons thing

    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.
