Yu Got What It Takes

By James Finn Garner

A hard-charging slugger is Yu
On a par with Yaz, Kruk or Klu
Driving in runs
By the pound! By the ton!
Though Carl Jr. lent a hand, too.

 



Pen of Bull

by James Finn Garner

Strop, Rondon, Duensing and Edwards
Nothing instigates dread like these words

Edwards, Duensing, Strop and Rondon
Strewing more walks than a team can condone

Rondon, Duensing, Edwards and Strop
Barren of any resilience or hope

Edwards, Strop, Rondon and Duensing
Fill me in later ‘cuz I can’t keep watching

 



Walk Off

No doubt the Cubs pen is undermanned
A slight kink in Theo’s master plan
We all have heard the “Spahn-Sain-rain” trope
Now it’s “Edwards, Strop and give up hope”

So Maddon chose to call up Lack
(Keeping Davis in deep freeze?)
Bad choice, too late to take it back
Turner crushes it to Los Feliz

Walk off
Walk off
Walk off
Walk off…

 



Dusty in the Wind

by James Finn Garner

What does the future hold for dear Dusty
Now that the lure of gold has gone bust-y?
With the Nats getting beat
He might land on the street
Like mold, his reputation now musty.

 



Maddening Maddon

by James Finn Garner and Hilary Barta

Ol’ Wrigley was soaked in a squall
Nats’ Taylor had stroked the long ball
Though I love Carl Junior
Hook should’ve come sooner
But Maddon did nothing at all.
