You know how Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo keeps trying to downplay his team's interest in Prince Fielder? How he keeps saying Adam LaRoche is going to be the team's first baseman next season?

Arms entwined, the chosen few

The newspapers says, says

Say it's true it's true...

And we can break through

Though torn in two

We can be one
