A poem for former D-Back’s manager Bob Melvin.

Permanent tossout, Bobby boy.

Bob always looked so despondent and calm,

Like the team’s struggles were right when they really were wrong.

Bob rarely showed any flair or passion,

But still managed to win in unusual fashion.

Bob’s teams gave up a lot of runs,

And scored even less,

Mostly because of a miserable offense.

So one day the front office decided to give Bob the lynch,

And promote his director of player of development A.J. Hinch.

And I can’t say I didn’t see it coming,

The Diamondbacks didn’t exactly start the year off-and-running.

And they’ve only got Bob to blame,

For the D-Backs starting the year 12 and 17.
