An Ode to James Russell, LOOGY Extraordinaire

Share Button

Frustrated Fan on Twitter had a funny tweet thought last night during the mini-marathon in Arizona:

I thought that was brilliant given how we at WSD thought that James Russell wasn’t really an all-purpose reliever anymore, but rather a LOOGY, or lefty-one-out-guy.  This is as good an opportunity as any to throw together yet another random parody.


To the tune of “Boogie Oogie Oogie” by A Taste of Honey

If you’re facin’ a long string of lefties
Every skipper knows just what to do
Time to call the bullpen, warm up the LOOGY
Let the LOOGY fire it up against their platoon

Watch him race out the door
Then he’s gonna LOOGY OOGY OOGY
Till they don’t have lefties no more (LOOGY)
LOOGY no score
Now the lefties can’t score (LOOGY)
LOOGY no score, set them lefties down now

There’s no time to waste, let’s get this win on the road
Check out the catcher’s signs and keep your pitches low
The runners are on first and second, they’ll be on the move
Gotta check the runners and you’ve gotta stay smooth


Set down, all those lefty lefties
Set down
