500 Club

by Stephen Jones

Tampa the venue
Big Papi hits five hundred
Next stop? Cooperstown

 



Hard Eight

by Michael X. Ferraro

Memo to Manny Machado:
Next time, you must hit it much higher
If you want your lead-off blast to
Get past the gold glove of Kiermaier.

 



The Woeful AL East

by Stephen Jones

Tampa Bay and the Yankees–
They’re running neck-and-neck.
Each team a game over .500 . . .
And fighting for first place?

Mind you, those also-rans–
The Red Sox, Orioles, Blue Jays–
Aren’t so far behind. But, hey,
What’s happened to the AL East?

Dunno. Let’s hang up a sign–
For Sale: 1 Over-Hyped Division.
Over-Priced Team–Your Choice.
Get it now–Cheap!

 



Yankees 11, Tampa 5

by Stephen Jones

CC ends his drought
A-Rod’s homer–number eight
Yankee team–gelling

 



American League East 2015 Spring Training Haiku

By Stuart Shea

Orioles
Hitless in 20…
Not a great way to come back
Is it, Matt Wieters?

Red Sox
New acquisition
For Boston’s Zoo—a panda.
He won’t go hungry.

Yankees
First spring in many
With a wide-open spot where
A legend once trod.

Rays
All the big names gone
And one eye is looking north
Thinking of Quebec.

Blue Jays
It’s hard to know, man…
Can they win without Stroman?
Does Haiku need rhyme?
