Tom Petty would have loved this

In response to DM's rosy philosophical outlook, I present an 80s ballad with a different outlook--and yeah, it's a blog, this is how I feel today.
Apologies to Mr. Petty, the tune to sing this to will be obvious.....

He was a good player, drove in his teammates
But that was years past, his knees never healed
And we decided to trade for another
We've got two guys straight out of Coors Field.

We've got a great Skip, a top Hall of Famer
To manage, but now we're fading from the hunt
Hey who's batting, it's our best player
The answer's obvious... let's have him bunt.

And now we're freeeee......
Free Fallin'......
Yes, we're freeeee
Free Fallin'

We've got a GM whose history is suspect
He's the go-to guy that we love to hate
You may ask why, he's probably a nice guy
He signed our shortstop who hits .188.

Now we're freeeee......
Free Fallin'......
Yes, we're freeeee
Free Fallin'

We've got at Angel who yells at other players
And gets real angry when he is hit
Oh, did I mention that our best pitcher
Decided yesterday that he wants to quit.

Now we're freeeee......
Free Fallin'......
Yes, we're freeeee
Free Fallin'

I wanna go back to when we were winners
When we'd shut up and were happy to play
Before they all started whining
'Bout the dimensions at RFK

Now we're freeeee......
(Free Fallin', we're-a free fallin, we're-a)
Free Fallin'
(Free Fallin', we're-a free fallin, we're-a)
Free Fallin'
(Free Fallin', we're-a free fallin, we're-a)
Free Fallin'
(Free Fallin', we're-a free fallin, we're-a)
Free Fallin'
(repeat to fade...out of first place)
