Ode to 2012

It was a warm March morning

Spring Training had arrived

A cold, bitter winter

Had finally been survived

...................................

The team scrapped and fought

Through a competitive spring slew

Gave us hope, gave us light,

Gave us something to cling to

....................................

Then the real season started

And Altuve hoarded hits

J.D. knocked him in

While Wandy popped the mitts

.....................................

In May Carlos started raking

C.J. did as well

If we're the worst team in baseball

We surely couldn't tell

......................................

June rolled around

And the regression began

But 'twas in July

That [it all] hit the fan.

......................................

The trade deadline approached

And Luhnow started dealing

The veterans were shipped off

But the team kept on reeling

.......................................

August came next

(As is usually the case)

We eventually grew numb

To the constant egg on our face

......................................

.500 can be seen

Only with a 50-win ladder

But we in the 'Boxes

Know this lost season doesn't matter

........................................

What will September bring?

Lots of losses, for sure

But with a little more Dominguez

And a little less Moore

.......................................

Yes, the path is dark

But what's that in our sight?

The tunnel's end draws closer

And the future looks so bright
