But Woe is Three!

by Hilary Barta

Golden leaves on October winds blow
And relievers don’t know how to throw
Can Kyle Hendricks complete?
Will they send in red meat?
How I grieve for the bullpen of woe.

 



Deja P.U.

by Hilary Barta

An unhappy, recurring motif
Is the crappy Cubs middle relief
With the pitching this weak
If they can’t fix the leak
Then the Champ’s repeat bid will be brief.

 



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…

 



La La Land

by Hilary Barta

If today they seem aimless and murky
And their play in the game less than perky
The Cubs’ flight went astray
Wasn’t right to LA
I say we should blame Albuquerque.

 



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.
