Subterranean Bullpen Blues*
Johnny’s on base again
Trot’s playing insane
I’m on the internet
Thinkin’ about the last upset
The man on the mound
Shoulder hurt, laid down
Says he’s got his pitches back
Nothin’ is out of whack
Look out kid
It’s somethin’ you did
God knows when
But you’re doin’ it again
Myers better duck down the alley way
Lookin’ for a new friend
Mantei in the Red Sox cap
In the bullpen
Can’t get a strikeout
Here we go again

Olerud ain’t so fleet foot
Gets on base, don’t stay put
Edgar gets on base next
Pity on the team that’s hexed
Manny doubles anyway
Trot pops out to end the day
“They must bust in early May”
Usually what the writers say
Look out kid
Don’t matter what you did
Walk on your tip toes
When wearin’ crimson hose
Better buy more of those
That carry around a fire hose
Keep a clean nose
Watch the plain clothes
You don’t need Carson
To know which way the hairdryer blows

*With apologies to Bob Dylan.


Excellent! In looking at those World Series programs, I also found your South Park "Blame Canada" parody. Very clever.

(I did one after last year's ALCS)

Love the Dylan parody. One more loss to the Cubs, and we Sox fans might need a dose of "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35" (if you get my meaning...and I think that you do!)

Great jorb. Dirt dog and his cronies have nothing on you.

Did you ever hear Weird Al's song "Bob," which is a tribute to Dylan, and is made up entirely of palindromes?

"O Geronimo(-oooo)/No minor ego(-oooo)"

Really nice. Very poignant photoshop job on the image, too.
