The Story of This Offseason

      The weather is chilly

     The Hot Stove’s cooling down

     Some General Managers were so silly

     Letting their players leave town


     Footballs are flying

    Baseballs are being cooled

    Yankee fans are dying

   To see the Red Sox get schooled


   The stars are training

  Getting ready for the season

  While others are demanding huge contracts

  Practically for no reason


 Some teams are getting bargains

 Some players are getting deals

 And the Hall of Fame just inducted someone                                  

Who’s got some pair of wheels


A candle is alone flickering

Waiting for its time

To go join a team

With its own fantasy rhyme


Boras is speechless

As quiet as can be

Still demanding huge contracts

For some players worth a penny


So that’s the story of this offseason

From Dunn, to Abreu, to Manny

How many are left without contracts

And those people are a plenty





Embrace who you have and desire who you need

Go tell your General Manager and be sure to plead!

  1. Awesome! Though I don’t know about that Red Sox getting schooled part! 😉


  2. Nice one! Oh, so true.

  3. Great poem. You have a way with rhymes and it’s not easy. The “pair of wheels” was my favorite.


  4. Thanks so much you guys! I appreciate the feedback!

  5. That was sweet. Except for the last rhyme. Ha! Serious fun read and thanks.


  6. The hot stove is cooling down as you mentioned, but I think its going to go wild soon with all the players still available. Pitchers and Catchers in only few weeks. Can’t wait!

  7. I can’t wait either Ryan!

    Great poem Manoman, you really have a way with words! I can’t wait to see what you have to say about the Petite signing. Your blog is great, and I really enjoy checking in on it. Pitchers and catchers report in 3 weeks, the season starts in 80 days…… can’t wait! By the way , how’s your buddy Evan Longoria doing this off season?
