One year ago, Ben and I wrote a song about Vladimir Guerrero, trumpeting what I viewed to be his inevitable destiny as Savior of the Baltimore Orioles. Things did not work out that way, and as such, today we present The Ballad of Vladimir Guerrero, a cautionary tale against over-hyping one’s expectations.

Please note: we were also very wrong about the Red Sox, but not about the extra terrestrials, who do indeed appear to have absconded with the real Carl Crawford.
