The Lyrics

i thought gloves were only used...with coat and tails
sports, which some loved well, were not for me
scouts were out to get me (doo doo...doo doo)
cause my fastball screamed (doo doo..doo doo)
dizzy dean's got not a thing on me

its a pennant race...and i'm a reliever
in second place...but startin' to climb
i'm a sub (ooooooh)
(oh) i'm a reliever
i ain't tom seaver...but i try

i thought gloves were, more or less, a fashion thing
dreams of sports and games, i never got
but...my fastball's flyin' (doo doo..doo doo)
i'll be throwin' flames (doo doo... doo doo)
when i'm needed sometime in the game

its a pennant race...and i'm a reliever
in second place...but startin' to climb
i'm a sub (ooooooh)
(oh) i'm a reliever
i ain't tom seaver...but i try

scouts were out to get me (doo doo...doo doo)
cause my fastball screamed (doo doo..doo doo)
dizzy dean's got not a thing on me

its a pennant race...and i'm a reliever
in second place...but startin' to climb
i'm a sub (ooooooh)
(oh) i'm a reliever
i ain't tom seaver...but i try

yes, its a pennant race
and i'm a reliever
in second place...but startin' to climb
yeah...i'm a reliever (yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah)
i'm a reliever
yeah, i'm a reliever, yeah (i'm a reliever)
yeah, i'm a reliever, yeah (i'm a reliever)
yeah, i'm a reliever, yeah (i'm a reliever)

Awesome matching with the OS, alvin. High fives. And my Rangers need you badly...if your heater is 109 mph, it'll match the temp here in Dallas

A grand slam plus 1.

5.00 may be a poor ERA, but at Amiright Stadium, it's a good On-Pace Percentage. Did you hear the Mets signed Michael Jackson? Just what they need: Another guy who wears a glove on only one hand for no apparent reason. Of course, he's excited about joining the Mets, what with their youth movement. But then, he hasn't had too many hits lately.

Well, nobody could touch you on this one, alvin...painted all the corners here...gonna have to check you for steroids now, though...the team I created for "You Throw Just Like A Woman" could have used you...their ERA's were all over 10.00 - I'm throwing some 55 mph change-ups here for your score. 5's ~ ~ ~

Alvin: Forget the Texas Strangers. Come on over to Birdland! The Orioles could use any relief they can find ! Get yer ACE over to Baltimore so we can whip dem Yanks and knock the Sox off! This was a very cool parody in the heat of the summer. Great job. My fave all-time player was Number 5, the third baseman, Brooks Robinson. Here's a Brooks 3 bagger coming at ya! 5 5 5!

Hey, Pooch! How the Birds doing attendance-wise, with that first-place team down the Parkway that Angelos was shaking in his boots over for the last 15 years?
