Manny Being Gone

by Mark Bazer

The Red Sox traded Manny.
It was the right thing to do.

He may spend hours in the cage
And put up stats to earn his wage,

But he didn’t hustle, he didn’t care.
His main priority was his hair.

The Red Sox traded Manny.
It was the right thing to do.

The Sox have youth, they’ll be OK,
But the same is true of Tampa Bay.

Battling fourth now is Youkilis.
The Sox are officially kook-i-less.

The Red Sox traded Manny,
I may stop caring, too.
