Yost let loose his bullpen,
His blue barn of big horses.
Like Ben Hur’s chariot team
They then shut the door
On the Giants’ faces.
by the Village Elliott
Again Giants southpaw with stubble
Gives World Series foes scoring trouble.
. Last three Series Mad Baum
. Won three games with aplomb;
Four score years ago it’s Carl Hubbell.

KC fans are crying like their fountain
That James Shields
A smorgasbord yields?
A surprise (save Joe Buck) to no one.
The Giant hill ace
Has a fall ERA
So small as to be microscopic
While it’s time for “Big Game”
To drop the nickname
And meetings for that MLB biopic.
By Stuart Shea
Matheny hoped for damage control
As each reliever dug a hole.
Choate was awful, Maness ehh,
Rosenthal wild, Martinez bleh.
Who is left to call on, then?
Wacha’s down there, in the pen…
He hasn’t pitched for several weeks,
But nothing’s left that doesn’t leak.
See one problem, cause another–
That’s how bullpens work, my brother.
How to fix this bullpen bleed?
Get a bigger lead.
