The Second Start of Mr. Morton

Again, set to the tune of Schoolhouse Rock classic Mister Morton.

It’s the second start for Charlie Morton
Mister Morton is who?
He’s recovering from a brutal loss
So let’s see, how did he do?
Mister Morton walked up to the mound
Mister Morton walked
Mister Morton talked to his catcher
Mister Morton talked
(Hello, Chooch, you look good)
Mister Morton was ready
Mister Morton was

Mister Morton is the pitcher of the ballgame
And he finally got a win for us

Mister Morton struck out seven
Mister Morton struck
Mister Morton scattered three hits
Maybe he doesn’t suck
Mister Morton was confident
Mister Morton was

Mister Morton is the pitcher of the ballgame
And he finally got a win for us

The game was going smoothly
The Phils were in the lead once again
That’s what starting pitching’s all about
But this time though
Mister Morton powered through
And helped his poor team out

Mister Morton stayed until the seventh
Mister Morton stayed
Mister Morton got two more outs
Mister Morton was frayed
Mister Morton was very tired
Mister Morton was

Mister Morton is the pitcher of the ballgame
And he finally got a win for us

The coach came
Neris arrived
He faced just one man
(Come on guys- come on!)
The inning was mercifully completed
And the bullpen preserved the win

Mister Morton threw 100 pitches
Mister Morton threw
Mister Morton knew his curveball was good
Mister Morton knew
Mister Morton was a happy man
He remembered how to pitch well again

Mister Morton paced to the dugout
Mister Morton paced
Mister Morton faced the local media
Mister Morton faced
Mister Morton was tired
Mister Morton was
Until he got a little run support
And the Padres didn’t get even a run on the board
Now Mister Morton is determined
And the rest of the Phillies are too

They’re still at home tonight
And should hear less of those boos
