I met George Foster a few years ago at sleepaway camp. I have a picture of me with him in my room at home.

I'm George Foster, I love this team
The Mets are better than the Red Machine
I live to play, and that's my thing
this year we're gonna win the series ring.

We play together, our team's real tight
Don't mess with us, we're dynamite
"Strawman," "Darryl," it's all the same
Call him "'Berry" what's in a name?
____________________________

Thank you George, you're a classy guy
With your black bat, we can rely
Yeah, California's where I'm from
But for New York, I hit homeruns.

Power and speed, you know we got
We're the beast of the east, when you're hot, you're hot
When Dwight's in the groove, there's no doubt
Next words you'll hear: "Tthree strikes you're out!"
___________________________

Dwight's my name, what can I say?
You know they call me Doctor K
Change up, fastball, slider, and curve
Step up to the plate if ya got the nerve.

With control and power of a diesel train
Throwin' tombstone bullets and a ball'n'chain
Lenny D., your spirit's contagious
What ya do to your body is really outrageous
___________________________

I love to run down long fly balls
I catch them all, ain't afraid of no walls
I bunt, I run, and then I dive
It's a wonder I'm still alive.
___________________________

Rafael Santana is my name
Playin' shortstop is my game
I'm a cool glove man, I'm really smooth
Being Metsmerized is in the groove.
___________________________

When they want a batter filled with terror
They call on me, Rick Aguilera
Slider's hot, I'm on the mound
With cool control, I mow 'em down.
___________________________

I'm Kevin Mitchell, the season's rook'
Studied all the moves, ready to cook
I got it together, ready to play
Up in the bigs, hopin' to stay.
___________________________

I'm Tim Teufel, lemme begin
By saying I was once a Twin
I made the move and it feels just right
I've been Metsmerized and I see the light.
___________________________

My name is Ho Jo, I'm here to say
Our team is goin' all the way
With pitching, power, speed, and style
Results guaranteed to make you smile.
___________________________

Team's real hot, stand up proud
Do the wave, shout it loud!
Get Metsmerized, Get Metsmerized
Get Metsmerized, Get Metsmerized.

Worst couplet ever to open a verse of a rap song:

I'm Tim Teufel, lemme begin
By saying I was once a Twin


I also imagine this conversation:

--"Santana's agent says he's on board! Let's greenlight this mutha!"
--"Wow! It's like a license to print money!"

I'm Kevin Mitchell, I'm insane
There's something wrong inside my brain
Caught a ball with my bare hand down the line
And allegedly killed my girlfriend's feline

Tony Danza? Don't be silly
I'm returning hero, Lee Mazzilli
George's black bat was no loss
I'll show all you who's the boss

When the game is full of risk
Just call on me, Big Doug Sisk
Throwin' a sinker is like throwin' a punch
Chillin' in the bus, with the Scum Bunch

I would hope that a 2005 version would contain some hard-core gansta shit.

"D-Wright here, niggaz gonna witness a coup
As I take back the league at just twenty-two
I be hustlin pitchaz who think they all that
Knock em back on they ass with my 30 ounce bat

Bitches gon' scream when D-Wright in the house,
Up to and including Kris Benson's spouse
Now Kris, bring that shit, spit it tight
Show these niggaz who's boss while I dig out your wife."

Damn, you beat me to it:

I’m Tommy G, gunnin’ for 300 wins
Lack of run support bites me time and agin’
Since I came to town my patience been tested
But I don’t give a fuck cuz my option has vested
------------------------------------------------------------
I’m Kaz Matsui and I bring down the boos
I figure at this point I got nothing to lose
I haven’t done my job so I try to take the high road
but I still know I’m better than Miguel fucking Cairo
------------------------------------------------------------
Kris is my name, don’t you dare call me Kristen
When batters face me they be swingin’ and missin’
Signed a big contract, I’m high on life
But I wonder how many teammates are banging my wife
-------------------------------------------------------------
Get Metsmerized, Get Metsmerized
Get Metsmerized, Get Metsmerized

-------------------------------------------------------------
Pedro’s my name, pitching’s my game
Ten years from now I'm in the Hall of Fame
Couple of runs is all I need
I wish the relievers would stop blowing my leads
------------------------------------------------------------
I’m Reyes and I run at a blistering pace
but people give me shit cuz I’m never on base
But I don’t pay attention cuz I’m still having fun
(You down on OBP? Yeah you know me!)
And who gives a fuck if I’m still scoring runs?
-----------------------------------------------------------
I’m Looper the closer, and I’ve been struggling lately
It’s tough town and everyone hates me
Still I try to keep my head up, try to not be defeatist
But who’d have thought we’d ever hear “Bring back Benitez!”
-----------------------------------------------------------
Get Metsmerized, Get Metsmerized
Get Metsmerized, Get Metsmerized

I never in a million years would've come up with rhyming defeatist and Benitez. Well done.

"Sampson had his hair, what I got is my bitch
She give me nasty tail and the strength to pitch
Just flows inside me and I knock niggaz out
1-2-3 suckas down for the count.

I’m number 2 when I pitch, but it ain’t no knock
With Pedro Martinez packin that glock
You come out swingin, you'll go down quick
Mutha got bigger balls than Tricky Dick."

But the best thing, lover
Is that wild-high motha’
Throws balls that always miss, like this

He tries hitters /teasin’
Ain’t no fuckin’ reason
He can’t throw a pitch at the knees
Or throw three strikes over
To the other club’s socker
Or let his teammates play some/ D
He’s a consistent/loser
Throws like a Tampax/ user
Never throws up something they’ll miss
He just tries to nibble
Not like that ol’ Rob Dibble
And give the fans some wanted bliss, like this

"Bitches talk big before I come to the mound
But shut the fuck up while I'm settin em down
They think they got me played but I'm deep in they head
Got em swingin and missin like I'm butterin' bread.

Good shit, bad shit, it's all the same,
"I'm smarter than you" that's the name of the game
While I'm riffin on game, here's my man Cliff Floyd
Bustin Mets out of seams like anabolic steroids."
