All-Star Clerihews #1

by Hugh Briss

Troy Tulowitzki
Must be throwing fits. He’s
The top vote-getter among NL jocks,
Yet plays for a bottom-feeder like the Rox.

Andrew McCutcheon
Walks around touching
Each and every light switch
Cuz his OCD is just a bitch.

Anthony Rizzo,
That’s a big favor to owe.
You’ll have to deliver, by gawd,
Before they uncover Chicago’s election fraud.

Chase Utley
Needs a course in geography.
Instead of Minnesota,
He booked a flight to North Dakota.

Jose Altuve:
Smooth move, eh?
Spend the week away from Houston,
Maybe get some fishing done.

 



CK None

by Michael X. Ferraro

With Kershaw slinging filthiness
and Scully narrating the scene,
The no-hit ingredients were
all in place at Chavez Ravine.

Fifteen Rockies went down on strikes
(one reaching by errant throw).
Rojas at third veered into left
to keep Clayton’s hit count to NO.

In the end, the lopsided box
score  tells only a part of the tale
Of the night that 40,000
bellowed, while 9 could only flail.

 



Don Zimmer, RIP

by James Finn Garner

Old Zim
When I think of him
Looks like chaw and tar
And a grand har-har
To those squares
Who don’t care
About baseball
And giving your all
For what you love.
And when push comes to shove,
Had Martinez been 70,
Zim would’ve pounded him plenty.

You’re our kind of guy.
Goodbye, Popeye.

 



A Rocky Salute

By Stuart Shea

Let’s raise our glasses
To Nolan and Tulo–
The greatest twosome
Since the lovers Von Bulow.



National League West 2014 Spring Training Haiku

by Stuart Shea

DIAMONDBACKS
Now, the big question:
Will Trumbo survive the fall
From an angel to snake?

DODGERS
Possessing billions
Does not mean that a person
Knows what they’re doing.

GIANTS
The Freak must now prove
That he can effectively
Re-get his Freak on.

PADRES
Who will hang a star
On future great Padres plays
Now that Jerry’s gone?

ROCKIES
Will the Car Go boom?
Will Tulo’s stats be too low?
Will anyone care?
