Twas the Night Before Christmas (Twins Edition)
Image courtesy of © Richard Mackson-USA TODAY SportsThe fans were nestled while scrolling through Twitter,
While visions of future rotations made some bitter.
And Odo in his jersey, and Kep in his cap
Said, don’t worry, this offseason is not yet a wrap.
When up at the plate there arose such a clatter,
There were bombas for days, it didn’t matter the batter.
Away to the games fans flew like a flash,
Tore open the gates, and made a mad dash.
The ball that was flying like new-fallen snow,
Gave not a care to the opponents below.
When, what to fans wondering eyes should appear,
A new home run record to enjoy with a cheer.
With a strong power hitter, so big and so thick,
I knew in a moment it must be Boomstick.
More rapid than Buxton, the teammates they came,
As he whistled and shouted and called them by name:
Now, Romo! Now Stashak!
Now, Dobnak and Sano!
On, Berrios! On, Arraez!
On, Pineda and Polanco!
To the top of the step!
To the top of the wall!
Now hit away! Steal away!
Strike away all!
