Rockies 8, Yankees 4

by Stephen Jones

Could it get any worse,
This sow’s ear out of a silk purse?
0-9 with men on base?
Talk about a team disgrace.
The Yankee mantra seems to be
Feel free to squander opportunity.

 



Storied Start

by Stephen Jones

Rockies’ mountain high
Trevor Story’s spring debut
6 home runs, 4 games

 



Farewell…

By Stuart Shea

Farewell, Buehrle,
Never surly,
Perfect game and Series ring.
Sox fans wish you everything.

Huddy, boy, you’ll be missed,
South and north, east and wist.
Auburn, Atlanta, by the Bay,
222 wins ain’t hay.

Jeremy Affeldt said goodbye,
Left the field and maybe cried.
Made some cash, answered the bell,
Made himself some friends as well.

Aramis Ramirez
Hopes for a Seriez.
He’s played a lot of ball,
But not much in the fall.

A.J. Burnett wants the same:
Play more than one October game.
And yes, he really cares
To play a role for the Corsairs.

And who else out there will call it quits
When the uni or job no longer fits?
Or the outright release came?
Who’s played his last game?

Barry Zito? Dan Haren?
A-Rod, Colon, or Beltran?
Latroy Hawkins, Betancourt,
Or some other old man?

 



Trip to Lourdes

by The Village Elliott

“Never trust a base-runner with a limp. Comes a base hit and you’ll think he just got back from Lourdes.” –Joe Garagiola

Slumping visitors often leave healed,
Like from Lourdes, when they visit Coors Field;
But for Coors humidor
They could heal even more,
Cured by number of runs Rockies yield.

 



Equal Time for Colorado

by James Finn Garner

Colorado’s owed a poem–
It’s years since we have posted one
About the Rocky Mountain State
And everything that makes it great.
The skiing hills, the hiking trails,
Big-time marijuana sales,
The healthy folks, the energy green.
I’m also told they’ve a baseball team.
