Best #Royals quote of 2011 (so far)? Jeff Francoeur on hitting in the Mets' spacious park: "Citi Field is a damn joke."

Rustin C. Dodd, on Twitter

(To the tune of Make 'Em Laugh)

You're the joke

You're the joke

With that swing, and that miss, you're the joke

(Ha ha!)

My dad said, "If your hitting's in a years-long dry spell

At least treat all your baseball team's beat reporters well

They'll stand beside your locker all day

You can hit .210! Strike out four times! They'll never say!"

Now you could study Pujols and become quite elite

You've sure charmed the critics by smiling in defeat

Home or road, you'll take a hack

at pitches at your feet

You're the joke

You're the joke

You're the joke

You're the joke, you're the joke

Don't you know, we all know, you're the joke

My grandpa said go out and hit one a mile

But if you pop up, you can win 'em back with a smile

You're a star

In your dreams

You bring grit

But few hits

To your teams

You start off by pretending

You can now take a walk

You quickly let the fans know

That was nothing but talk

And when your team gives up on you, you angrily balk

You're the joke

You're the joke

You're the joke
