i hope they play "Baby Shark" when the opponent brings in a reliever.  Can you imagine the entire stadium giving an opposing pitcher the chomp when he walks in?

he got his ring

now chase that money while you still can.

Thank you Parra for your contributions to changing the culture of our team. No bench player has had more impact than you

Love the sentiment, not sure Howie didn't have more impact but both made great contributions.

Baby Shark ran its course, and served its purpose. It should be put out to pasture.

I consider Howie more of a starter than bench player. Parra was true utility bench player.

You are the last guy in the world that I thought would hold this opinion. Well. Slate too.

I love Baby Shark. I’m making my girl go see Baby Shark Live with me in June. I blast Baby Shark on a 60 minute loop while I play RBI baseball.

You already heard the news that I won’t be back for the 2020 season with our World Series Champion team, and it wasn’t an easy decision to make, but I feel blessed with all the things we shared together and the new opportunities that God is giving me with @yomiuri.giants. #npb

I just want to say thank you, to the @Nationals organization, to Henry Blanco and Dave Martínez for trusting me, to my teammates, to the media, and especially to the awesome and amazing fans of DC for giving me the opportunity to live the best chapter of my career and helping us get the fight finished.

On behalf of my baby girls @tvictoriamp88, my wife @tvictoriam, and my family I just want to say THANK YOU! I will never, ever, forget what we lived in 2019 in Washington, where the Parra Shark was born and belongs. I’m gonna miss you all, but my heart will always be with you all. I will cherish this past season for the rest of my life and I hope to have your support in this new challenge.

With all the love and good vibes,

Gerardo Parra
❤🦈
Forever #ParraShark

I promise you, if circumstances ever align for that guy to make a return to Nats park, regardless of the uniform he is in, the ovation will be through the roof. This entire season was so magical and he will always be credited for a major part of that. I remember that none of us were particularly excited when the announcement was made that he was joining the team but I am so happy he did!!! I'll miss you Gerardo!!!

I predict this will be the best selling product of all time dedicated to a 5th outfielder

It actually looks like him.
