Though many first baseman show promise,
the best year belongs to Frank Thomas.
Belliard’s had a good year,
but I’ll choose Soriano’s career.
Carlos Guillen sure has swung,
but I somehow prefer Michael Young.
Voting for ARod’s a bore; a
merrier pick’s Melvin Mora.
Posada and Victor, I judge,
are not quite as worthy as Pudge.
While Ford, Dye, and Beltran ain’t bad,
they’re not Manny, Sheffield or Vlad.
Even those who don’t follow fanatically
know Pujols will go automatically.
I think I am fairly content
in casting my vote for Jeff Kent.
Shortstop this year really sucks.
Jack Wilson’s played well for the Bucs.
Rolen must get my support.
Can’t I move Lowell to short?
Piazza’s still back of the plate
Estrada will just have to wait.
Berkman and Bonds and Abreu,
with my votes I hereby OK you.
