Milwaukee Haiku, June 2017

Brewers vs. Pirates

Revering the Beard
Crew needs the facial power
To put down the Bucs

Game 72. Pirates 8, Brewers 1

The offense dries up
Garza and Wily are not
The pitching answer

Game 73. Pirates 7, Brewers 3

With a six-run first
Pirates pile on Zach Davies
Crew quiet again

Game 74. Brewers 4, Pirates 3

Santana comes through
While Arcia golden gloves
The final grounder

Game 75. Brewers 4, Pirates 2

Behind Chase and Shaw
Crew earns a split of series
Still hanging in first

 



A Shot of Jameson

by Stuart Shea

He ain’t no lazybones.
And ain’t he got some stones?

Autumn’s New Retirees

by James Finn Garner

Before the Fall gets underway,
Let us doff our caps and say
Goodbye to those who’ll junk¬†their cleats,
Leave the park and walk the streets.

Super-versatile Angel Chone
Will now be the utility man at home.
Grant Balfour, hothead Aussie,
Can only fume when his wife gets bossy.

Phil Humber’s vaunted perfect game
Was his sole stat worth noting (such a shame).
The Prince has trouble with his neck–
He’ll inspire no more fear on-deck.

Tex and A-Rod will leave the Yanks
And all their fans will mumble thanks,
While Raf Soriano has called an end
To tell war stories, a fine fireman.

But let’s not forget the other guys,
Young tyros once, with starry eyes,
Who gave their all but somehow missed
The general manager’s call-up list.

They’re just as key to the game as any
Adam LaRoche or Brad Penny.
Talent, drive and dreams they bid,
Just like us when we were kids.
