"Funeral for a Catcher/Joe Lies Bleeding"
"Nishi in the Wind"
"D-d-d-dickey and the Mets"
"Goodbye Justin Morneau"
"Joe Mauer Has No Title (Just Second in BA)"
"The Ballad of Erik Komatsu"
"All the Young Girls Love Darin"
"Butera Can't Hit (But He Can Rock 'n' Roll)"
"Saturday Night's Alright for Losing"

You need to provide an audio link because this isn't funny. Or maybe ENOUGH ALREADY about Tnish. It's understandable that topics get scarce in september for back to back 90 loss teams but he should really be praised for not being greedy and that he put principals before the all mighty dollar. Just like team ownership has always done.

Mr. Torse. Don't be a party pooper. Everybody has their own way to filter fun and enjoyment into their lives. If you do not like it, move on to a new thread.

For example: My most enjoyable time was in the late 1960's, in the San Francisco Bay Area. I don't want to get into what my fun was, but I feel assured that most would not think my "fun" is acceptable.

If writing a parody of an Elton John song about Nishioka brings a little joy to a few posters... what's the harm?

Lighten up sir and find your fun place.

I hope this wasn't intentionally written to sound mean-spirited. We can all agree this signing was a mistake, but give credit to Nishioka for not sticking around and eating up 3M in salary next year, as was his right and as many would do. The least we can do is let him leave with dignity; to fail to do so says more about us than about Nishioka.

+1

to put it in other words: Nishioka had more class than Cuddyer*

*and thankfully both ways.

Thanks for the great chuckle ... now I'll have those pseudo-song titles running through my head all day -- especially "d-d-d-dickey & the Mets" and "Goodbye Justin Morneau". I can actually hear Elton on those two.

Glad you enjoyed it. I dashed it off quickly and it could've benefitted from major editing and improvement - the takeoff on Funeral For A Friend came off as creepy - sorry, it was meant to reflect the toughness any catcher requires. :)
