    Twas the Week Before Christmas. . .

    Twas the week before Christmas
    and all through the land
    No one was restin', not a single Reds fan.
    The Red Stockings were hung by the dugout with care
    In hopes that new "presents" would soon arrive there.

    The fans were all nestled right snug in their Bed-
    ards while visions of lefties danced through their head.
    And Wayne in his office and Bob in his den
    Had just made a call to RedRoser their friend.

    When out o'er the cellular rose such a clatter
    That Bob yelled to the Roser, "What the heck is the matter?"
    Away to the Roser's Wayne flew like a felon
    And arrived just in time to hear Roser a yellin:

    "You promised us changes! Where ARE they?" asked 'Roser.
    "So far all you've brought is one overpriced closer!
    Our starting rotation lies somewhat a' barren,
    No Tomko, no Leiber, go out and get Haren!

    Trade Bailey, Trade Edwin, Trade Griffey or Hammy!
    Or Votto, Cueto, or even your Mammy!
    Offer Gonzalez or Valentin or Keppinger or Freel---
    Whoever, Whatever it takes for a deal!"

    His eyes all astonished, his shame unabated
    Special K had no answer which the 'Roser awaited.
    Yet I heard him exclaim as he walked past the lawn,
    "Merry Christmas to all---you'll be gettin' Johan!"

    ---RedRoser

    I wonder if a Johan Santana to the Reds rumor will show up on mlbtraderumors tomorrow on the basis of your lyrics.

    Nice!

    RedRoser, a RedsZone classic.

    Accept no substitutes.

    Merry Christmas, my friend.
