The Season In Verse | They Needed A Nurse

They started out cold
David Ross got old
He retired to dance
Clark still has no pants

Schwarber went down
to Iowa town
He came back up
he's still just a pup

Montero was right
about Arrieta's pitch flight
But he was also to blame
though cutting him was lame

Bryzzo came through
Jon Jay too
Russell went down
Baez went to town

Lester got hurt
Lackey stayed curt
Willson kicked dirt
Umps on alert

Quintana came over
from trash to tall clover
same with Avila
Bret Anderson - see ya!

Joe was Joe
thanks Bosio
Theo and Jed
Hendry's Cubs are dead

On to the playoffs
for the third straight year
let's leave Dusty
crying in his beer
