State of the Offseason

Halfway through the offseason

It’s time for a rhythmic recap

So without further adieu, that’s my cue

To put on my Stro’s writing cap

.

Dave ‘n Brett were moved along

JD followed them out the door

They did their jobs, did ‘em well

Couldn’t have asked for much more

.

A bit earlier than expected,

The new uni’s were unveiled

Despite all the hype and rumors

A more retro look prevailed

.

The manager’s staff was filled in

A rather anonymous assembly

Porter, Clark, and Brocail

Were joined by Mallee and Trembley

.

The old mascot returned! Whoopee, I guess

I’ve known no other than Jack

But I’ll yield to more experienced fans

And be pleased that Orbit is back

.

Our winter leaguers performed well

And the search for a DH continues

Such a strange thing to say, but now we will play

Most our road games in AL venues

.

Uncle Wilton had left us

Then returned, to jubilation

Only to pack his bags again

And head to higher elevation

.

Another pitcher’s transactions

That proved too confusing for me

Was the polar opposite of Lopez

A completely different Storey

.

The man with the plan, Jeff Luhnow

On sly moves continues to thrive

Making four nifty picks in a row

In the draft they call the Rule V

.

We reached a deal with Phil Humber

Which is quite an interesting saga

Fair or not, I can’t help recalling

The Astros tenure of Galarraga

.

No major moves, but no real surprise

Of course, there might be one soon

We may be in for another bumpy season

But with the youngin’s coming up, stay tuned!
