Twas the Night Before Christmas: Twins Themed


Twas the night before Christmas, when all through Target Field
Not a worker was stirring, for every door had been sealed;

The stockings were hung by the dugout with care,
In hopes that a free agent soon would be there;

Every fan was nestled all snug in their beds, 
While visions of championships danced in their heads;

And Bill Smith in his 'kerchief, and Gardy in a cap,
Seem to be spending the offseason on a long winter's nap;

Cliff Lee had signed and still no deals had been made,
On many fans minds this problem heavily weighed;

When out on the field there arose such a clatter,
Smith sprang from the bed to see what was the matter;

 A star from Japan who flew like a flash,
Left fans hoping that his contract wouldn't be too brash;

The Dome had crumpled under the new fallen snow,
The rest of the offseason moves seemed to come slow;

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
Thoughts of Pavano returning would let the fans cheer;

Gardy wants a new team that is lively and quick,
He is also pushing for the return of a Nick.

The free agents they left for more fortune and fame,
A title in the Central will be hard to reclaim;

Crain and Guerrier were the first ones to fly,
While the others will most surely be saying goodbye;

There are question marks from bottom to top,
Questioning Mr. Smith seems to be nonstop;

With the new year changes will come,
It is still hard not to feel glum;

A star pitcher would make the fans clamor,
Or a bullpen pitcher who can drop the hammer;

The wish list is long for fans this holiday season,
Trying to overcome the Yankees is definitely the reason;

Fans want a plan so they can be merry,
Because making no moves seems all too scary;

A Christmas signing wrapped in a bow,
Could make up for this excess of snow.

Back to sleep I will go with the hope of a good dream,
For the Twins will continue to be our baseball team;

There is still plenty of offseason to make things right,
Until then "Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night."

Wishing Everyone a Very Happy Holiday Season!
