The Lyrics

Never heard the original and as noted, I'm just trying for the Super 7 since I had 3 down, though don't expect the last two for a good long while, 4 and 5 just came rather fasts. As I said, I didn't do the long version, Michael Pacholek, one of the site's more prolific writers, did this downloaded version so i did, too. It's about my all-time baseball starting lineup, and the debates fans can have over it.
Mighty arm in right, could have been a good pitcher, competition’s sure not light.
Something isn’t right, voice says Ruth must go thither, but Clemente gives a fight.
Ruth played some left, right. But designated hitter for Ted Williams don’t feel right.
Aaron fuels my plight, Hank’s underrated ever, could be argued first for right.

Some positions for an all-time team like Lou Gehrig are clear.
Filled with grace, awesome pace for home runs too, sad face as we recall speech so dear.(1)
Jeter did test but second best to Honus Wager, is guessed by all analysts around.
Sev’ral lovely but with all he endured Jackie Robinson’s the
Best choice to play second I’ve found.

What a pro; he could throw, third you know, he could play.(2)
But that spot in right? Yes I put Mays in center, so Ruth’s defense, not a blight;
When young he was light, and was a superb pitcher. Yes that complicates it, right?
Peak or career might just fuel a new argument for how to pick Team Delight.
And then some will cite needing to draw lots of fans, with longballs into the night.

Brooks Robinson’s great play or Mike Schmidt’s power display is a fun debate if you want.
Schmidt did aid with great plays made but Brooks’ best years were a decade when the pitchers were dominant.(3)
Pitchers speaking, we’re peeking at a rotation streaking with greats like Maddux and Paige,
And then Tom Seaver, Walter Johnson with his heater, Feller and one of a few lefties on stage.

Catcher, dear! Bench is here, but it’s clear, Berra or
Gibson may be right, mighty Josh had power too, played when just the ball was white.(4)
Hit like Ruth all right, fans would love to cheer him too, adding him gives pitchers fright.
Bench’s arm had might, I guess I’ll put him at two(5), but I really fear I might
Never feel quite right, still with these other greats you can’t go wrong with Ruth in right.
(1) the "Luckiest man on the face of the Earth" speech, of course. (2) Jackie Robinson started seasons at third, as well as in the outfield and at first when he came up. Bill James' Abstract shows he had ridiculously high fielding range for 2nd base. (3) The mound was raised in 1963 and lowered in '69, his prime years. (4) A Negro League star, verse an homage to a great book about the Negro Leagues. (5) 2 is the defensive notation for a catcher when scoring a game.
