Perseverance

by Doug Fahrendorff

Junior Guerra
At age 31, a unique rookie
His baseball odyssey a winding road
Stops at Braves and Mets minor league affiliates
Independent ball
The Mexican league
And Italian pro baseball
This year he arrived in Milwaukee
His pitching success
A bright spot in a rebuilding year
However long his success lasts
It’s worthwhile
Celebrating his perseverance

 



Mid-April Brewer Blues

by the Brewer Haiku-er (@brew_haiku)

April 15
Brewers 7, Pirates 4
PNC boos Braun
So he steps up and jacks one
2 homers 2 nite

April 17
Pirates 5, Brewers 0
When the Brewers lose
They do it in a big way
Ain’t no runs tonight

April 18
Pirates 9, Brewers 3
No comeback today
Crew makes a dent in the 4th
McCutch slams door shut

Opening Day

by Doug Fahrendorff

April
Has finally returned
Days longer
The sun warmer
The ennui of winter
Gives way
To the excitement of spring
Best of all
Baseball is back
Harbinger of the halcyon days of summer
One more season
Following the national pastime
Today at Miller Park
The journey begins
Play ball!

 

 



Brewer Sweep

by Doug Fahrendorff

Three straight wins
Over the Pirates
Nice start to
Seasons 2nd half
Improvement obvious
Pulling some fans
From midseason languor
Team still far
From playoff contention
Questions abound
If  Brewers are sellers
At the deadline
Will  Gomez, Segura
Parra or Lind
Be playing elsewhere next month?
And who will remain
To form the nucleus
Of next year’s team?



…of All That is Seen and Unseen…

By Stuart Shea

Never got to see
Parc Jarry.
Ebbets and the Polo Grounds
Remained unfound.
Forbes Field
To me unrevealed.

But I did run with glee
Through old Comiskey
And Tiger Stadium
Was like a palladium
And Milwaukee County
An endless bounty.

Dank, damp, and rusty,
Outmoded and fusty,
But to me much more fun
Than Wrigley, say, has become.
