Cubbies’ Christmas

 

 

to the tune of

 

Snoopy’s Christmas” by the Royal Guardsmen

 

 

The Cubs had finished year one-oh-four

They hadn’t been back since the Second World War

The plan was in place to put that to an end

And they called on Jed Hoyer to do it again

 

‘Twas the night before Christmas, wouldn’t you know

Jed was still working to one-up his foes

Acquiring pitching, and pitching he got

With ice in his veins some more pieces were bought

 

New contracts, no no-trade clause

Rebuilding the farm

Plugging pieces into holes

No shortage of arms

 

St. Louis and Cincy right in his sights

Milwaukee and Pittsburgh would put up a fight

Houston had moved, ’twas a much tougher go

Jed had lots of support from Tom and Theo

 

New contracts, no no-trade clause

Rebuilding the farm

Plugging pieces into holes

No shortage of arms

 

The prospects were working their way up the chain

Jed Hoyer, our hero, was working the trades

Incredible work for a club on the mend

In the hopes that the Cubs will be in first once again

 

By smartly drafting and shrewd midseason flips

Jed Hoyer would book some more October trips

After working so hard for over a year

Yearly contention hopefully draws near

 

New contracts, no no-trade clause

Rebuilding the farm

Plugging pieces into holes

No shortage of arms

 

New contracts, no no-trade clause

Rebuilding the farm

Plugging pieces into holes

No shortage of arms
