‘‘Twas the night before Christmas"

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Putting this front and center because it made me laugh really hard (and miss baseball). Excellent work, APlr2BNamedL8r! - Eric

‘Twas the night before Christmas at the corner of Edgar and Dave

all the fans were so happy to welcome Robbie Ray.

Kyle Seager’s jersey was hung in his locker with care,

but everyone knows he's not going to be there.

The prospects were nestled, not locked out like the majors,

but Commissioner Manfred won’t do them any favors.

All the fans in their face masks and some in their caps,

want games to attend, so please go get vaxxed.

When out on the field there arose such a clatter,

it’s nervous players having to face Casey Sadler.

We used to have Dee, the son of Flash

With hopes to get Ohtani, more international cash.

And what to my wondering eyes should appear,

A team who hopes to end the drought next year.

And steering the ship, with a scowl on his face,

I knew in a moment, it must be Servais.

Oh Marco, and Jarred, Lewis and Misiewicz

Flexen and Logan, France and Margevicius

(I’m not sure these rhyme, but I’m also not sure they don’t rhyme)

To the Crawford short porch, hit the ball over the wall

one run saves secured by Steckenrider, Sewald

With the farm full of talent Juilo, Kirby, Brash and Noelvi

The future is bright, fingers crossed they stay healthy

And begging John Stanton to fork up the cash

Is Jerry Dipoto, not an enviable task

Sign Bryant or Story both would look good in teal

"It’s Northwest Green!" Kevin Martinez yells with zeal

For the first time in 20 years, the M’s play in the fall

Happy Christmas to all, and to all Chaosball
