    Music and Lyrics by J. Yellen and M. Ager
    So long sad times
    Go long bad times
    We are rid of you at last
    Howdy gay times
    Cloudy gray times
    You are now a thing of the past
    Happy days are here again
    The skies above are clear again
    So let’s sing a song of cheer again
    Happy days are here again
    Altogether shout it now
    There’s no one Who can doubt it now
    So let’s tell the world about it now
    Happy days are here again
    Your cares and troubles are gone
    There’ll be no more from now on From now on …
    Happy days are here again
    The skies above are clear again
    So, Let’s sing a song of cheer again
    Happy times
    Happy nights
    Happy days Are here again!

    I can’t help picturing Inge driving to the ballpark every day and sitting in the parking lot just to avoid explaining to his kids that he got cut.  He’s not any good at baseball right now, but I’m still a little sad to see him go.  Less sad than I was about Higginson, though, or even Maggs with his second broken ankle.

       @ChrisHannum He’ll get picked up soon. And he’s making 5.5MM, hard to feel too bad.
