    • A Holiday Season Mets Song
  • 2/11/13
  • JoseJose

In light of the "imminent" signing of Bourn with another team, I thought this holiday tune deserved a bump - hey at the time we had no catcher so at least they addressed that.

(Sung to the Tune of "Do You Hear What I Hear" - it really works best if you have a chorus repeat the "Who will play the outfield?" part just as the real song does with the "Do you hear what I hear?" part.

Title - Who Will Play the Outfield?

Said the one GM, to the other three:
Who will play the outfield? (Who will play the outfield?)
Let's call Torres back, maybe he'll play for free
Who will play the outfield? (Who will play the outfield?)

No stars, No stars,
Fred and Jeff lowered the bar
We can only afford Torres-like fools
It's ensured, that we're go-ing to lose

Looks like soon, Fred will hold open tryouts
Who will play the outfield? (Who will play the outfield?)
Sandy's called A - A - R - P and the girl scouts
Who will play the outfield? (Who will play the outfield?)

Payroll, payroll
It keeps sinking like a stone
Despite no catcher, no outfield, or relief
So for Met fans, it's years more of grief

Said the angry Met fan calling on the FAN,
Who will play the outfield? (Who will play the outfield?)
Can we sign someone, what's the *@$!-ing plan??!!!
Who will play the outfield? (Who will play the outfield?)

Some scrubs, who stink
Minor-leaguers on the brink
With no power, no speed or other tools
Fred and Sandy
must take....us for fools.

OK, IMO this is NY we should have got a proven mlb outfielder - could have done so without breaking the bank. We have a vast outfield at our park. Once pitchers saw Kirk they ate him alive, and Duda can't play the field. But no need to rehash all this - I hope Kirk hits well, he can field.

You knew I'd appreciate that! haha! It's like a Steve Somers parody. (he would approve)
I must admit, I am excited about the reconstituted Mets going into 2013, (a different way of throwing up?)

My pick for the outfield would be Mike Stanton, if we could get 'im. The problem now is that Miami would want too much, more than we can afford to give up. I'd like to see a Delgado like presence in the outfield, and with Ike, and Wright, Duda (if he can) and some pop from our catcher, we'd be set with the offense. I still think Tejada should bat 8th, where he has been consistent and very good.. a strength at the bottom half. (if the heart of the order gets on base, lets bat them in)

thoughts?
