Tsuyoshi Nishioka was a "Candle in the Wind"

The following song is dedicated to former Twins middle infielder Tsuyoshi Nishioka as he exits the United States and heads back to resume his career in Japan. The tune of the song is "Candle in the Wind" by Elton John. Enjoy!

Goodbye Tsuyoshi
Though we hardly knew you at all
You had the grace to leave the Twins
Back to Japan is where you crawled
Two seasons have gone by
And it was a disaster from the start
Swisher broke your leg
'Cause your defensive skills were not smart

[PRBREAK][/PRBREAK]And it seems to me you played your career
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing where the ball was
When you stepped in
And I would have liked a player
But you're worse than a kid
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did

Defense was tough
It looked like you never played
Japan created a superstar
And the Twins were the one's that paid
Even when you left
Oh the press still hounded you
All the papers had to say
Was that Tsuyoshi really blew

And it seems to me you played your career
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing where the ball was
When you stepped in
And I would have liked a player
But you're worse than a kid
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did

Goodbye Tsuyoshi
Though we hardly knew you at all
You had the grace to leave the Twins
Back to Japan is where you crawled

Goodbye Tsuyoshi
From the young man in the 22nd row
Who sees you flailing at the plate
Back to the dugout is where you go

And it seems to me you played your career
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing where the ball was
When you stepped in
And I would have liked a player
But you're worse than a kid
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did

And I would have liked a player
But you're worse than a kid
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did
