Adjusted Fire Sale

by the Village Elliott

Billy Beane’s yearly trade deadline sale
Causes A’s fans once more to go pale.
Fans know once they adjust,
And new A’s earn their trust,
Players’re traded next year without fail.

 



“Vida Blue” by Albert Jones

Happy 67th birthday, Mr. Blue!



Oakland Sweeps Yankees

by Stephen Jones

Don’t kill the pitchers
Pinstripe offense anemic
Yankees brushed aside

 



Pitcher’s Poison

by Michael X. Ferraro

With Sonny Gray’s stomach unsound,
Rich Hill took the pill to the mound.
One nasty yakker
gave the comebacker
an Opening Day most profound.

 

Michael X. Ferraro is the author, most recently, of Circus Catch.



Farewell…

By Stuart Shea

Farewell, Buehrle,
Never surly,
Perfect game and Series ring.
Sox fans wish you everything.

Huddy, boy, you’ll be missed,
South and north, east and wist.
Auburn, Atlanta, by the Bay,
222 wins ain’t hay.

Jeremy Affeldt said goodbye,
Left the field and maybe cried.
Made some cash, answered the bell,
Made himself some friends as well.

Aramis Ramirez
Hopes for a Seriez.
He’s played a lot of ball,
But not much in the fall.

A.J. Burnett wants the same:
Play more than one October game.
And yes, he really cares
To play a role for the Corsairs.

And who else out there will call it quits
When the uni or job no longer fits?
Or the outright release came?
Who’s played his last game?

Barry Zito? Dan Haren?
A-Rod, Colon, or Beltran?
Latroy Hawkins, Betancourt,
Or some other old man?
