The Lyrics

Not the first time I've ripped a Yankee pitcher with a parody -- or even to this song. I've had it with Logan's Runs. If this guy were righthanded, he wouldn't even be in the major leagues. But he's lefthanded, and so somebody thinks he has value. Unfortunately, that somebody is Joe Girardi, manager of the New York Yankees.
(instrumental opening)

In a little while from now
he'll still leave me feeling sour.
I promised myself
to treat myself
to send him to the shower.
But I'm not Joe Girardi.
I wish I were, you see.
In an effort to
make it clear, it's true
that this guy's a lousy pitcher
left standing on the mound
with the sound of home runs cracking.
My God, that schmuck, he's out of luck.
His ERA is stacking.
His time here needs an end.
He is simply not my friend.
It's Boone Logan
naturally.

To think that only yesterday
we put the Red Sox away.
Looking forward to
win a game or two
against the White Sox that we'd play.
But as if to knock me down
this bad pitcher came around
and without so much
as a strong touch
left our game chances in pieces.
Leaving me to doubt
talk about old Sparky Lyle.
A reliever who goes three strong?
Haven't had that for a while.
And in my hour of need
who goes and blows a lead?
It's Boone Logan
naturally.

It seems to me that there are pitchers
throwing in the world
that are much better.
They are go-getters.
What do I do?
What do I do?

(instrumental break)

It's Boone Logan
naturally.

And looking back over the years
at these guys who make me drink beers
I remember how I fumed
when ERAs ballooned
never wishing to hide the jeers.
And at 28 years old
this pitcher torments my soul.
I can't understand
why this failing man
has a place in our bullpen.
Leaving me to start
with a heart that's heavy thumpin'.
Despite encouragement from me
this pitcher, he's got nothin'.
And when the ball flies away
I scream and curse all day!
It's Boone Logan
naturally.

It's Boone Logan
naturally.

Hmmm....anyone who could vote the pacing down on this either has no clue how the OS sounds or is really really stoned...

Michael - you're only 28 years old? Or is that the pitcher? Anyway, excellent pacing, good overall job. And question, Michael, do you follow any of the minor league stuff? I ask because my nephew may be there in a year. :)

Logan did it again last night... He may be 28, but he has the effectiveness of a man twice that age.

Don't worry, in two years he'll be terminated. But then again there will be a huge chase but hopefully he won't meet up with Peter Ustinov's clone. Either way, "Send out Logan" and "Logical Choice" does not compute, causing a lead to blow up.
