I’m Gonna Be (.500 Ball)

I’m Gonna Be (.500 Ball)


By Robert Malchman - With apologies to the Proclaimers

***

When I wake up, well, I know I'm gonna see

The Yankees are a team who play the game poorly

When I log on, yeah, I know I'm gonna see

I’m gonna see the Yankees took just one of three

If I get drunk, well, at least I know I won’t see

The New York Yankees with a dozen LOB

And if I have to, hey, I know I'm gonna be

I'm gonna be the man who’s kicking his TV


But they will play .500 ball

And then they’d play .500 more

Just to be the men who choked a thousand times

And fall down on the floor


When it’s working, yes, I know it’s gonna seem

It’s gonna seem like Boone can really win for you

But when it’s about money, you know what Hal will do

He’ll pass on Soto and bring back Joey Gallo

When I come home (when I come home), oh, I know I’m gonna see

A bullpen meltdown of Ferguson’s courtesy

And if I grow old, well, I know I'm gonna see

Judge becoming Stanton in the 2030’s


But they will play .500 ball

And then they’d play .500 more

Just to be the men who choked a thousand times

Please just show Boone the door


When I'm angry, well, I know I'm gonna be

I'm gonna be angry for all the games they blew

And when I'm dreaming, well, I know I'm gonna dream

I'm gonna dream of what the Core Four used to do

When they strike out (when they strike out), well, I know it’s gonna be

Outside the zone, then another GIDP

And when they’re at home (when they’re at home), yes, I know I'm gonna see

Starters giving up a first inning run or three

I'm gonna be the man who's breaking his TV


But they will play .500 ball

And then they’d play .500 more

Just to be the men who choked a thousand times

And get swept out in four


And they will play .500 ball

And then they’d play .500 more

Just to be the men who choked a thousand times

To fail in October

***

If you don't know, sing this to this tune:

The roster construction and how they acquire talent has been subpar for several years now. Boone, for all his faults, real or perceived, this is not his coaching staff he has with him. He does not have final say on majority of things that go on before or after the game, and we can debate just how in charge he is during the game. Remember, when they were scuffling last year, Cashman said about Boone, and I'm paraphrasing now, 'He has done everything we want him to do '. That to me, is not a ringing endorsement of a man who supposedly is the Boss in the dugout. That tells me he is more of a puppet.

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

"Scattering The Ashes has all the feels. Paul Russell Semendinger's debut novel taps into every emotion. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll reexamine those relationships that give your life meaning." — Don Burke, writer at The New York Post

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
