With our dear Editor-in-Chief leaving Baseball Prospectus for his next chapter, we wanted to highlight some of our favorite chapters of his career here. There's an incredible number of timeless Sam Miller articles to choose from, but we whittled it down enough to not break the internet. This article originally ran on December 24, 2013.

Since people seem to like it when "Forgot About Dre" lyrics are replaced by baseball players' names, there's now this:

Y'all know me, still the same KOJI
but I been LUEKE
Hated YAN by most these —— with BOCHYs, no deals, CANO Gs
No wheels, AOKIs, no boats, no snowmobiles, and NORIs
Mad at me cause I can finally afford to provide my family with groceries
Got a CHRIS WITHROW studio and it's all full of tracks
To add to the wall full of plaques
Hanging up in the office in back of my house like trophies
Did y'all think I'ma YUNIESKY? — please
You better BOWDEN on both knees
Who you think taught you to SMOAK trees
Who you think brought you the SMOLTZIES
Eazy-E's, Ice Cubes, and D.ORTIZ
The Snoop D-O-double-G's
And the group that said ——— NAPOLIs
Gave you a tape full of STROP beats
To bump when you stroll through in your hood
And when your album sales wasn't doing too good
YU’s the Doctor they told you TSUYOSHI
Y'all better listen CARLOS LEE
All you —— that said that I turned pop
Or The Firm flopped
Y'all are the reason that Dre ain't been getting no sleep
So —- QUALLS, all of y'all
If y'all don't like me, THOME
Y'all are gonna keep ——- around ‘WITZKI and turn me back to the old me

Now O’DAYs everybody wanna talk like they got somethin' to say
But nothin' comes out when they move their lips
Just a bunch'a gibberish
And ————- act like they forgot a BELTRE

Note: Please consider each replacement in isolation; this is an amalgamation of "Forgot About Dre" lyrics replaced by baseball rhymes, not cohesive rethinking of the song's lyrics.
