Astros switch pitchers

Well you came and you left because you were tanking
So I sent you to Triple-A, oh Wandy.
Well you pitched to me and stopped the batters from taking
We don't need you today, oh Wandy.

And yes, I know the syllables are off a bit.

I'm not sure if you should get credit or demerits for inserting the name of a crap ballplayer into the lyrics of a Barry Manilow song.

1 If Manilow offends, then how's about:

You're a fine 'stro
What a good Zephyr you'll be
But my life, my love, and my starter
is Backe

Surely, no can quibble with inserting the name of a crap ballplayer into a Looking Glass song.

Except for maybe humanity.

But I like the song "Brandy".

He won 9 games for the Astros with a 5.22 ERA?

So THAT's where all their runs went.

How about Boston? No, not the team, the band:

"I brought you into town
and put you on the mound
Oh Wandy,

I could tell you right away
that baseball's not your game
Oh Wandy.

I'm going to tell you like a man
and make you understand
Oh Wandy."

Strangly enough, the last phrase is exactly the same as the original.

5 That song improves dramatically if you imagine Phil Garner crooning it to Wandy Rodriguez as he delivers the news of the demotion.
