The Lyrics

What's the difference between the Mets' bullpen and a war? With the Mets' bullpen, you know the pain and suffering will be over by October 3.
There was a reliever, Francisco Rodriguez.
He pitches for Angels, and really good he was.
He signed in Flushing, where teams always beat us.
Our future was wide open.

There wouldn't be enough games for him to save.
The starters all gave him games that would be depraved.
Even Santana was sent to early grave.
The sky's where they hit it.

Into the great Met bullpen.
Team wears orange and blue.
Out of the great Met bullpen.
A ballclub without a clue.

Feliciano, and once Aaron Heilman.
And Billy Wagner, I did not like his style, man.
Be careful when, for free agency, you file, man.
You should know your limit.

Slaughtered in Philly, blew game to Cincinnati.
The Mets' rotation drives all of their fans batty.
The bullpen makes them cry, "Want Mommy and Daddy!"
Their tears are flowin'.

Into the great Met bullpen.
Team wears orange and blue.
Out of the great Met bullpen.
A ballclub without a clue.

Into the great Met bullpen.
Team leaves its fans so blue.
Out of the great Met bullpen.
A ballclub without a clue.

Interesting regarding Heilman is that when he came up, the Mets decided to "change" his mechanics. You'd figure they have learned their lesson after doing that to Doc in 1986 (Yes cocaine wasn't the only thing that wrecked his career). Way to go Mets, even have to continue to pay Bonilla for few more decades.

I feel your pain and pine for the long-past days of innocence when it was actually funny when the Mets played badly. ;D Keep the faith.

You're right, Max. That Gooden's career could have been derailed by injury even without the coke is a true tragedy... but just try telling them that. Sort of like telling Red Sox fans that Tony Conigliaro was already hurt a few times before he was beaned and might not have been "what might have been": Tell them and duck. OMR: You must not be familiar with my work, because I am a sick, twisted, demented Yankee Fan. Go into "Search" and type in "Mets," and you'll see a lot of my output. Lady: Why did you even go to Candlestick then? I hope you bundled up!

Oops! You are right. I'm turning a deep shade of Red (Cincinnati, not Boston). I stand corrected...of course you are a Yankee fan. ;D
