Oh you know I had to do it…read below for more silliness as we sing the praises of Dale Sveum before he has even written one lineup in spring training. Heck, it’s not like he’s going to make Darwin Barney hit more homers, but two or three years down the line when he actually has a good team to manage, we can really belt it out with some gusto!
Come Dale Sveum
Sung to the tune of “Come Sail Away” by Styx by Theo Epstein
(Song for those of you who need to check my pacing)
I just hired Dale Sveum
He is gonna wear the Cubbies’ “C”
Now will he burp Big Z?
Will he stop the streak at one-oh-three?
Once more, write a lineup, who will bat fourth?
We’ll search for ways to fill up the box score
And I’ll cry, Oh Lord I’ll cry…Go Cubbies Go!
I look through spreadsheets
Looking for more market deficiencies
O-B-P’s not bad
It’d be nice to have pitchers, not launchpads
Hope he can be a good leader, stroke the egos
And somehow we will reach our treasured goals
And we’ll try best that we can…Go Cubbies Go!
Now gather all our players and stare on his bald head
We bring to you a greater hope, and this is what they said
They said come Dale Sveum, come Dale Sveum, lead us to victory, yeah!
Come Dale Sveum, come Dale Sveum, let’s win two of every three
Come Dale Sveum, come Dale Sveum, implement spreadsheets baby
Come Dale Sveum, come Dale Sveum, lead us to victory
(Wrigley seagulls sing)
Go handle all the questions, asked by the beat guys
No stupid bunts or IBBs, our eyes are on the prize
Singing come Dale Sveum, come Dale Sveum, lead us to victory, yeah!
Come Dale Sveum, come Dale Sveum, let’s stop at one-oh-three
Come Dale Sveum, come Dale Sveum, win one for old Ronnie
Come Dale Sveum, come Dale Sveum, lead us to victory…
