A Cardinals Tune: Friends in the Front Office

There have been three things this season so far has made me want to do… drink, cry, and listen to country music. Thankfully Garth Brooks recorded “Friends in Low Places” so long ago. I gave this country gem a Cardinals theme below. In case your ears have never been blessed with hearing this song, there are a couple of links below.

 

 

Blame it all on my roots

I showed up in construction boots

Ruined the La Russa love affair

Last one to know

Last one to show

I was the last one

Cards fans thought they’d see there

And I saw the surprise

And the fear in their eyes

When I took that manager position

I toasted them

Said “yeah we may lose!”

“but you’ll never hear me complain”

 

Cause I’ve got friends

In the front office

Like Bill DeWitt the third and John Mozeliak

Who believe in me

So I’m just peachy

I’m not big on double switches

Think I’ll make Martinez throw

Two Hundred Pitches

Oh I’ve got friends

In the front Office

 

Don’t tell Mo he was wrong

I just don’t belong

Never been a manager before

Everything’s alright

I’ll just say goodnight

While we sleep on the Central floor

Hey I didn’t mean

To cause a big scene

Just give me another season and then

We’ll be so bad that you’ll all forget

How bad this one is!

 

Cause I’ve got friends

In the front office

Like Bill DeWitt the third and John Mozeliak

Who believe in me

So I’m just peachy

I’m not big on sitting Adams

Think I hate it even more

Than Jose Martinez batting

Oh I’ve got friends

In the front office

 

Don’t tell Mo he was wrong

I just don’t belong

Never been a manager before

Everything’s alright

I’ll just say goodnight

While we sleep on the Central floor

Hey I didn’t mean

To cause a big scene

Just let me finish this ‘13 champagne glass

Then all you fans

I’ll head back to dugout

And Wong can kiss my ass!

 

Cause I’ve got friends

In the front office

Like Bill DeWitt the third and John Mozeliak

Who believe in me

So I’m just peachy

I’m not big on bullpen usage

Think I’ll throw the three same guys

Until they’re useless

Oh I’ve got friends

In the front office
