This is an incomplete list of baseball names you can sing to the catchy, brilliant hook of Sade’s “Smooth Operator.” Some are more naturally in-line syllabically than others, but when times are tough, you can make all of these work.
I suggest you file this away for future reference when someone inevitably chooses to quiz you on the topic.
