There once was a Giant named Barry
A burden the team had to carry
From season to season, we all know the reason.
His contract was ironclad. Very.
Pitching was his chosen vocation
But his fastball lacked speed and location.
Back in 2010, he tried to be Zen
Then walked his way out of rotation.
This season he’s back and he’s “tweaking”
His delivery, technically speaking.
He hopes he can be taught, to maintain his arm slot.
If he were a ship, he’d be sinking.
He’s still throwing more balls than strikes
A thing that opposing teams like.
We Giants fans grieve, we will get no reprieve.
He has no plans to hang up his spikes.
