|Mark gives the new song a thumb sideways.|
It turns out the song was much better than the Braves' chances of making the playoffs that year because they had a starting rotation of John Smoltz, Tim Hudson, Craig McMurtry, Zane Smith and Tits McGee.* But we all were pretty fired up about the trade, and the song got some publicity for symbolizing that optimism.
(Curiously, there was no song about Casey Kotchman when the Braves traded Teixeira to the Angels the following year.)
Well, those guys (who call themselves Tito and the Gun Show) are back at it with a Bobby Cox tribute which they recorded at the behest of ThankBobby.com
Personally, I think the Mark Teixeira effort was much stronger, but this one is no slouch either. And anyone who writes original songs about the Braves is a winner in my book, I don't care what the scoreboard says.
*For the curious, the other three pitchers actually were McMurtry, Smith and McGee.
