Diamondbacks: A Love Song

This was a triumph.
I'm making a note here: "Huge success."
It's hard to overstate my satisfaction...

Beating the Giants.
We do what we must because we can.
For the good of the NL West
[Except the Padres, of course].

But there's no sense crying over veteran foul balls.
You just keep on trying till we finally brought up Paul,
Then the hitting got done, so we scored enough runs
And the Diamondbacks are
Still alive.

I'm not even angry.
I'm being so sincere right now.
Even though we re-signed Aaron Heilman.
And Melvin Mora.
And threw Russell Branyan into a fire.
As they failed, it hurt
but I was happy to lose.

Now, their veteran presence is no longer a crime.
We climbed out of second, and released them in time!
So I'm glad they're DFA'd, despite the salaries we paid,
For the Diamondbacks are
Still alive.

Go ahead, leave me.
I think I will watch ESPN.
The Giants might find someone else to help them.
Try Zack Wheeler?
That was a joke! Ha-ha! Fat chance!
Anyway. first place is great.
It's so delicious and moist!

Look at me, still talking
Celebrations to see.
Let's go look at the standings,
LOL at Lies and Perfidy,.
Picture captions to find.
Playoff previews to assign
For a fanbase who are
still alive.

And believe me we are
still alive.
We play the Dodgers and we're
still alive.
Then the Brewers and we're
still alive.
Maybe the Phillies, since we're
still alive.
And in October we'll be
still alive.

Still alive...

Still alive.
