Oh, Billy Wagner

Trish VignolaContributor ISeptember 10, 2008

Oh, Billy Wagner,

A fan’s pessimism, like a weed, will grow.

Our playoff prospects are no longer secure,

As you go in for reconstruction on your elbow.

Oh, Billy Wagner,

Standing defiant at the microphone.

You warn writing you off is premature,

But we face the chance that your last pitch has been thrown.

Oh, Billy Wagner,

Regardless of what the media says,

We agree with you! We hope there’s a cure!

As we enter a pen meltdown last seen with the likes of Benitez.

[Shudder] Oh, Billy...
