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 freeWho will play the outfield? (Who will play the outfield?)
No stars, No stars,Fred and Jeff lowered the barWe can only afford Torres-like foolsIt's ensured, that we're go-ing to lose
Looks like soon, Fred will hold open tryoutsWho will play the outfield? (Who will play the outfield?)Sandy's called A - A - R - P and the girl scoutsWho will play the outfield? (Who will play the outfield?)
Payroll, payrollIt keeps sinking like a stoneDespite no catcher, no outfield, or reliefSo 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 stinkMinor-leaguers on the brinkWith no power, no speed or other toolsFred and Sandymust take....us for fools.
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)
