The Lyrics

You're wondering why I'm in? Blister or elbow twinge?
An inning if I can. Their bats I hope to fan!

We've got Osuna, he's been warming, in the bullpen
Joe Torre's fuming, there's too much scoring, so he brings me in
So if you see him, acting strangely, don't be surprised
He's just a man who, needs a lefty, to put down the side
To get to the ninth, just get to the ninth.
Put down the side, to get to the ninth.

I'm not a starter, won't pitch six innings, my outings are brief
I've come to help you, with your problems, in middle relief
I'm not Melido! I'm not an Appier! Forgot who they were?
I'm just a man who, lost his fastball, but has pinpoint control
Has pinpoint control, has pinpoint control.
I'm fifty years old, with pinpoint control.

Posada is the man, who hides behind the mask
So no one else can see, the signs he gives to me

Domo Arigato, Jesse Orosco, Domo (domo), Domo (domo)
Domo Arigato, Jesse Orosco, Domo (domo), Domo (domo)

Thank you very much, Jesse Orosco
For getting the outs, nobody else can
And thank you very much, Jesse Orosco
For facing a lefty, when I needed you!
Thank you! Thank you...thank you!
I want to thank you, please thank you.
Oh! Oh-ah-oh!

The problem's plain to see
A slow delivery
I have to throw inside
To tag them when they slide

Three outs have come at last
My usefulness has passed
Rivera gets to see
(the) Save opportunity!

I'm Jesse!

Must be professional courtesy to keep paying a 46-year-old dude whose ERA is stratospheric.

Good one, Jeff!

Why shouldn't the Yankees pay half a million dollars this year to 46-year-old Jesse Orosco? After all, this country's taxpayers are paying $400,000 a year to 57-year-old George W. Bush, and he's doing even worse than ol' Jesse Erratic. At least Jesse will have a World Series ring come Halloween. What will Georgie have? Six more months in Washington, four at Camp David, four in Crawford and maybe two campaigning. Then he can stay in Crawford all he wants, while Orosco can also retire, knowing he got the job done.

I went to the Yanks game today, saw this guy walk someone on four pitches. I respect his determination, but when is it really time to hang up the clothes? Soon they're going to have to guarantee him a life insurance plan in his contract. By the way, kickass parody man. Three 5's all the way.

Georgie's not gonna win in 2004, eh, Mikey? Who's gonna beat him...don't tell me...Hillary's gonna run for her third term? LMAO

Let's put it this way, Bubba: It won't be the Red Sox, but people in Massachusetts will have something to celebrate.

Fantastic. Plus, anything with a Melido Perez reference gets automatic straight 5s, no matter how the rest of the song is (it's very good in this case)
Jeff Reuben - July 02, 2004 - Report this comment
Charlie...that one line made the whole song for me: "I'm not a hero...I'm not a savior!" to "I'm not Melido...I'm not an Appier!" Thanks for reading, and I'm really glad you got something out of the Melido reference

Snots flew out of my nose as I was reading that. Great wording and the pace was dead on. That is the funniest one I have seen on this sight. Keep coming up with these ones.
Jeff Reuben - October 27, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks Rusty! You're the best pinch hitter ever!

(Sports comp) I already commented and voted, but hell, I wanted to tell you how much I appreciate the Melido reference again. Thanks!
Jeff Reuben - March 01, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks Charlie...I can never get enough compliments on a Melido reference =)

Good stuff

(SPORTS) No pinch hitting needed here!

Excellent use of the original lyrics.
Ethan Mawyer - March 02, 2005 - Report this comment
(Sports) This is really funny. 555. Orosco isn't quite fifty yet, is he?
John Jenkins - March 02, 2005 - Report this comment
A very good parody about the plight of the middle relief pitcher. I definitely commend the parody for being almost as entertaining as Michael Pacholek's predictions in the comments. And my memory might be a little rusty (bad pun intended), but I don't remember Le Grand Orange delivering in the clutch as effectively as Manny Mota.
Scathe - March 03, 2005 - Report this comment
(SPORTS) Mr. Orosco must be in excellent shape.
Guy - March 03, 2005 - Report this comment
(Sports) No strike out on this one - dead on.

(SOTM) I've already used up all the baseball puns I know so I'll just state that I've read this one too.
Claude Prez - March 03, 2005 - Report this comment
Ditto John Jenkin's comments about Michael Pacholek's comments. And ditto everyone else on the song; well done though I don't know the original very well.

(Sports) Wrote my own parody of Mr. Roboto awhile back, so I can say from first-hand experience that you pitched a good one here, Jeff!
Loosekanen (Mike Armstrong) - March 07, 2005 - Report this comment
Was that a Melido Perez reference? GOOD LORD! Excellent points for that alone.
Eric Marks - May 11, 2005 - Report this comment
I like it! Has it been recorded?

Thanks to Michael for bringing the subject of politics to a Jesse Orosco parody of Mr. Roboto. Real class. By the way, nice predictions. Yanks lost in 2003', and Bush won reelection. Can you post who is going to win the Super Bowl this year, so I can bet money against them?

I'm afraid I'm not hip to baseball stuff. Looks like I'm in the minority though.

Stuart McArthur - August 01, 2005 - Report this comment
( J ) already commented, jeff, and I'm stumped at every level with this on, OS, subject matter, etc....but I'll go with the flow and give it 555 on the strength of all the positive comments!!

Duhhhh... does he get alotta conversions? Apologies for being out of the whole baseball loop, an enjoyable read anyways.
Phil Alexander - August 03, 2005 - Report this comment
Does this mean he takes lots of wickets, or scores runs? Or have I got the wrong sport... I'll echo what Stu said, I think.
