Grand Slam Wandoo

by the Village Elliott

For the Giants Keystone Combo

Tomlinson hit first home run today,
Wham-Bam, hit a grand slam, Cha-Cha’s way.
Crawford’s first home run, too,
Was a Grand Slam Wandoo,
One more Giants keystone double play.

 



Astros 15, Yankees 1

by Stephen Jones

In the beginning . . . of this baseball history,
Yankee Ivan Nova–he was not so super–
Got burned by Houston’s big bang theory.
Others followed–they couldn’t stop it either.

The Astros’ rain of runs, a meteor shower
Of them, had done in the old Pinstripers.

 



Yankees 4, Twins 3

by Stephen Jones

Coming-out party
Rookie Greg Bird home-runs twice
The Baby Bomber

 



We Don’t Only Have Eyes for You

by Jim Siergey

Is Starlin out tonight?
Is his future cloudy or bright?
Cubs think that he’s way overdue

Fans’ hopes are all high
They see that pie in the sky
Cubs like Baez and Russell, too

We all know the choice is a hard one
Shortstop’s a crowded avenue

He’s still here, some ask “Why?”
His batting average once was high
But now it’s disappearing from view
And Joe doesn’t have eyes for you

So, is Starlin out tonight?
Will Adam or Javy be right?
Will he no longer wear Cubbie Blue?

 



What Vet Should I Get?

by Hart Seely

What vet should I get?
Who doesn’t put me into debt.
A pitcher like A.J. Burnett…
What vet should I get?

A Price would be nice!
I wouldn’t think twice!
I’d certainly bite
If the Price is right.

I could get a Cole Hamels,
For my best Scranton mammals,
Who might be Allan Trammels!
(Plus a carton of Camels.)

I could get a Martin Prado,
For a year’s supply of Play-Doh.
If I got a new Craig Kimbrel,
My bullpen would be downright crim’nal!

I could get Aroldis Chapman,
What would Boston think of THAT, man?
Or I’d settle for Mike Leake,
Though that name has me feeling bleak.

What vet should I get?
And trade a guy we’ll soon forget.
Who won’t become the next George Brett.
What vet should I get?
