Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here 2013

I don’t quite remember how many years this makes now. I want to say four. Predictions are included at the end of the poem. Happy Baseballing!

Yippee, Yippee, Baseball is Here

The favorites? Tampa? I must’ve gone blind!

Just watch Price and Moore, they will change your mind.

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

The revamped Blue Jays can pitch and can bat

The Marlins could last year, don’t forget that.

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

The Bronx has moved south, retired, and died

But brought Cano’s prime along for the ride

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

Machado and Bundy will be stars fast

But last year’s record’s a thing of the past

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

All things just feel great, Boston in last place!

Dustin Pedroia, I say IN YOUR FACE!

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

With Rios and Dunn, Konerko and Sale

Surprise! I don’t think the White Sox will fail.

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

Miggy coming off a Triple Crown year

Fielder, Verlander, what is there to fear?

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

The Royals should not be awful this spring.

But getting better’s not really their thing.

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

Francona brings new attitudes, that’s cool.

You do think Cleveland will change? You’re a fool.

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

The Twins can’t pitch and their park is too large.

Can Ron Gardenhire remain in charge?

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

The Angels are stacked, no doubt about it.

You think they’ll flounder? Forget a-Trout it!

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

What can the Rangers do now to go far?

Elvis leaves the building, in comes Profar.

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

Far from the best A’s team that we’ve seen

But you can never count out Billy Beane.

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

The M’s aren’t in last; that is a first

Do they know how to play when not the worst?

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

After last season, could the ‘Stros be worse?

They’ll come to the AL! (Leave in a hearse.)

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

They’ve got competition atop the East.

But they simply won’t fail, Harper’s a beast.

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

The Braves outfield’s superhuman display

Just may carry them Up, Up, and a Hey!

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

The Phils can bounce back, good team they can be

Who couldn’t with Hamels, Halladay, Lee?

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

The same as last year without the knuckle,

The Mets being good? Don’t make me chuckle.

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

Pay one year then purge, it’s what the Fish do

Stadium vacant, their one fan is blue

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

Cincy is stacked, the best team in baseball

They’ll have a great summer; see you in fall.

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

Never count them out, they always come through

Don’t laugh; the Cards will end your season too

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

This year the Bucs will get over the hump

“They’ll be above .500!” says the chump.

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

Braun was caught juicing, stopped and got better

Hmm? Could this year be a record setter?

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

The Cubbies have no shot, why even try

You know you’ll just keep making your fans cry.

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

Go ‘head, pick against the Giants again.

I just can’t pick against Panda and Cain.

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

Spend all of the money found in LA

But still come in second, the Dodger Way.

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

For Tulo and Cargo, life is a bitch

They’re stuck on a team where no one can pitch

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

The D’Backs are young, a few years away

From losing the young guys who they can’t pay

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here

I tell you the Pads will never be good

They really are bad, not misunderstood

Yippee, Yippee Baseball Is Here
