“Joe Dimaggio Done It Again” by Billy Bragg and Wilco

 



Disparate Thoughts

by Jim Siergey

Did Vida Blue
ever pitch to
Dick Brown?

Did Bill White
ever fight
with Bud Black?

Was Dallas Green
ever mean
to Tyler Houston?

Did Mike Trout
ever dine out
with Tim Salmon?

Did Martinez, Carmelo
ever have Mark Lemongello
for dessert?

 



Twin Tales

by James Finn Garner

Rod Carew
Swung as smooth
As warm cashew
Butter

While Killebrew
Did tattoo
Many a drooping
Cutter

Jim Kaat
Knew thaat
His curve could make baats
Flutter

Jim Perry
Never varied
Or cheated like his hairy
Brutter

 



Crosstown Smashup

by Hilary Barta

Kyle Schwarber just put on a show,
Delivering blow after blow
Despite his great clout,
One didn’t go out
So to third he strode, beating the throw.

 



Milwaukee Haiku, June 2017

by the Brewer Haiku-er (@brew_haiku)

Brewers vs. Pirates

Revering the Beard
Crew needs the facial power
To put down the Bucs

Game 72. Pirates 8, Brewers 1

The offense dries up
Garza and Wily are not
The pitching answer

Game 73. Pirates 7, Brewers 3

With a six-run first
Pirates pile on Zach Davies
Crew quiet again

Game 74. Brewers 4, Pirates 3

Santana comes through
While Arcia golden gloves
The final grounder

Game 75. Brewers 4, Pirates 2

Behind Chase and Shaw
Crew earns a split of series
Still hanging in first
