A Tribute To Mike Mussina.

My apologies to Bono and the Edge.


All I Want Is Moose
(to get into the Hall of Fame)

You say you want
Green diamonds, and Gloves of Gold
You say you want
A Hall of Greatness Untold

But all the promises we make
And all the hearts we’ve yet to break
When all I want is Moose.

You say you’ll give me
A plaque with my favorite on it
Such pleasure just to look upon it
On a sultry summer’s night

You say you’ll give me
Cy Young winners in a Hall
Immortals in bronze on a wall
And we’ll consider the other guys later

But please allow me to make my case
Win/Loss percentage and ERAs
Hey, all I want is Moose.

Five times he was top five Cy Young Award vote getter.
He was tough; Mike wasn’t a quitter
HIS STATS COMPARE TO JIM PALMER’S.

But all the promises we made
To a pitcher who’s truly great.
Yeah, all I want is Moose.

    • LOL Noooooo not quite. I just think it’s a shame he hasn’t gotten more love from the HOF voters.

      Mooooooooooooose. LOL

      But seriously…Jim Palmer’s in the Hall of Fame and Moose’s lifetime stats are virtually identical. It’s a crock.
