Information about the song

(Long instrumental introduction)
Far
We're behind very far
And David Wright
Is our only star

Free
Give us tickets for free
Those trades you made
Took away our dream

Omar didn't use his brain
He traded for Heredia
Wonder if he's gone insane
He traded for Heredia

Wins, they all seem so far away
And good players don't come our way
To get caught in the storm
To get caught in the storm

Wins, we'll be lucky to make fourth place
We have no one to play first base
And our bullpen's forlorn
Yes, our bullpen's forlorn

(Shoet instrumental interlude)

Of all the pitchers in the world
He traded for Heredia
Lousy fastball, lousy curve
He traded for Heredia

Don't know what he's doing there
He traded for Heredia
Team's not going anywhere
He traded for Heredia

He traded for Heredia
He traded for Heredia
He traded for Heredia
He traded for Heredia
Today
Today
Today
Today
Today

Omar, I beg of thee
Today
Stop this insanity
Today
Do better things
Today
Do better things
Today

(Repeat the word Today several times as the music permits and fade)

December 4, 2004: The big news in baseball was the steroid issue after it was revealed that Jason Giambi told a grand jury that he took steroids and Barry Bonds also testified that he took them too, although he stated that he thought they were something else. I covered that topic in May 2002 with a song called Sluggers Little Steroids. This topic is more mundane. For the last two seasons, Mike Stanton was a mostly innefective lefty coming out of the pen. Mets fans have been begging new General Manager Omar Minaya to trade him. And trade him, Minaya did. For Felix Heredia, one of the few lefties that are worse than Stanton. The Neil Diamond song found here seemed to work nicely.
