Welcome to L.A. O-Dawg

Imagine, you’re 31, and you are gifted at the game of baseball. So gifted you are playing in the big leagues and you’re so good you want 15 million dollars, a year for 3 years to play on a team. You feel you are such a good player with all of your gold gloves, any team would want you on their squad. Once you file for something called free agency you think that everything you want is in the bag. Now, after waiting for someone to sign you for 4 months, you realize there is one tiny thing in the way of your goal. Something called the… um… economic depression, was it?

 I guess you forgot about that.

Now you are wondering, what do I do? My two favorite teams don’t want you.

Mets and Yankees Mural by yehwan.

Your money’s going down the drain.


You’re even suffering from panic attacks.


So, what is the solution to all your problems?


All I have to say is, peace out O-Dawg, The Manoman

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!
