EAST LANCE BROADWAY â€“ I did something like this last year,
but I have no shame in repeating myself, with apologies to Mel Brooks this time.

The whole northeast is having trouble,
What a sad, sad story.
The Midwest states are under water
With floods of tears for Corey
Weâ€™ve sprung an hour aheadâ€¦
You long for your comfy bedâ€¦
You need a break,
For goodness sake,
Or you just may wind up dead.
Good news itsâ€¦
Springtime for hitters in Florida
Mets fans are happy and gay!
We havenâ€™t started the pennant race
So look out
The Mets are in first place!
Springtime for hitters in Arizona
B-teamers will get their chance
Springtime for hitters in Scottsdale
Now prospects go into your danceâ€¦
My nameâ€™s Strasburgh and it ainâ€™t rational
That I will be a Washington National.
Iâ€™m Montero and it will please usâ€¦
With Damon gone Iâ€™m the Yanksâ€™ new Jesus
Springtime for hitters at Steinbrenner
High steps and stretching in the grass
Bombs flying off the bats again
I like to rhyme Bert Blyleven
Springtime for hitters at Port St. Lucie
Reyes is on the DL once more
Springtime for hitters in batting cages
Means that soon weâ€™ll be going to warâ€¦
And fantasy drafting, and wagering, and studying stats
And watching and listening and reading and gripingâ€¦
And griping, oh yes thereâ€™ll be griping
Right here on MeetTheMatts!
Three more weeks!
