A Pre-Season Lament

It seems that Alex Wood’s a Pear.
This situation’s hard to bear.
So I attempted to ensnare
This Mr. Wood by trade so fair.
Approaching the Peshastin lair
Addressing Mr. Smith, I shared
My wishes, sounding like a prayer.
He answered back, his price declared:
A valued Cheese for whom I care.
Smith’s offer back was more than fair,
But he asked more than I could bear
To lose a player oh so rare
To make that trade; I could not dare!
So Alex Wood remains a Pear.
