Mr.I is gone and the city of Detroit is in a hurt

But baseball fans will just rub their hands in the dirt

 

The Detroit Tigers of 17’ are on the prowl

It’s gonna be an exciting spring when they start their growl

 

With J.V. rearing back and throwing his heat

The other team has no choice but to face defeat

 

Brad is running his Tigers team from the dugout

He’s hoping to see his players get their winter funk out

 

Iggy has hands that are so soft that they wouldn’t breaks eggs

But the team has hopes that they will be winning from his legs

 

With the young Danial Norris living in his van

I really don’t care…he’s great and I’m still such a fan

 

I see the future in a rookie named Jacoby making catches over his head

He makes the players on the other team wish they were still in bed

 

Avila and McCann are running things behind the plate

The pitchers on the staff love being their battery mate

 

Zimm and Boyd will have hitters buckle their knees

That curve ball they throw just makes them hitters freeze

 

Fulmer is the youngster on the team who won Rookie of the Year

But his beard is so thick he looks old when he looks in the mirror

 

The bullpen has Wilson, Wilson, and Greene in the middle

They’re going to toast opposing hitters like they are on griddle

 

In the 9th they have K-Rod to shut things down

His changeup makes the best hitters look like a clown

 

They have Ian and Nick who cover the bases

It causes the other teams to have fear on their faces

 

According to my wife JD Martinez is hot and her favorite

But I assume most women who watch favor it

 

J-Up is catching balls that should be homers in left

He’s sure to make everyone think there was a theft

 

Baseball has such a tremendous effect on a city

That’s not from me, That quotes From Mike Illitch and its witty

 

The players hope to change World Series history

And bring Detroit a World Series victory

 

This team will pound opponents like a piece of meat

Because Tiger teams are proud, Not Accepting Defeat
