Thread: My Ode To The Reds

    My Ode To The Reds

    I can't post links to my songs here, but I am so disgusted with the Reds right now that I have to share my poem:

    Have they have ever heard of playing with some pride?
    Or at least make it look as if they tried?
    Castellini said we'd win but we're dead last again,
    I don't want to think that Castellini lied,

    I'd rather think the times have been adverse,
    Or we're just a bunch of victims of a curse,
    Is it simply growing pains or is it guys like Jimmy Haynes,
    That have made the Reds worse and worse and worse,

    We've had pitchers who can't pitch like Eric Milton,
    We've had hitters who can't hit like Jimenez,
    We believed what we were told, we bought into what was sold,
    So I don't believe what anybody says,
    We believed in Danny Graves as a closer,
    We were told that Brandon Claussen was Cy Young,
    If the other teams are like Kelly Clarkson with the mic,
    Then the Reds are more like William Hung,

    Can we trade the whole franchise to the Marlins,
    Cause the Cincy fans would fill the stadium,
    Give the Fish what they deserve, that's some eyeballs to observe,
    A team that's in the hunt for number one,

    Then the Reds could play in front of seven thousand,
    So no one had to see how bad they've done,
    And they'd stop robbing me of potential memories,
    That I could be sharing with my son,

    We've seen baserunning blunders and bullpens collapse,
    We've seen fundamental baseball go away,
    Is it just another slump or is it time again to dump,
    All the high priced players who can't play,
    So I say to Jocketty, work a miracle for me,
    And make me regret this song I've sung,
    If the other teams are like Kelly Clarkson with the mic,
    Then the Reds are more like William Hung
