National League West 2015 Spring Training Haiku

By Stuart Shea

Diamondbacks
One perfect lesson:
“Toughness” is no replacement
for smarts and talent

Rockies
The car will not go
if Car-Go cannot go for
more than half the trip

Dodgers
If Vin Scully calls
a game on SportsNet LA,
does anyone hear?

Padres
Best way to catch flies?
Simple. Put shit in your field!
Oh, wait…they’ve tried that

Giants
The World Champions
now go begging for alms to
replace their lost pence

 



You Make the Call

by the Village Elliott

Ain’t Pete Carroll, but Charlie Dressen,
Made worst sports call. History lesson:
Jints Thompson called, “Thank-a
God, he called Ralph Branca!”
Call Flatbush calls “Bums’ Most Depressin’!”

 



What I Learned from Ernie Banks

by James Finn Garner

From Jackie Robinson
I learned about grace under the gun

From Satchel Paige
I learned of the illusions of age

From Dick Allen
I learned never to give in

From Hammerin’ Hank Aaron
I learned to keep on keepin’ on

But from Ernie Banks
I learned to give thanks.

RIP. Let’s play two, forevermore.

 



No Tears Here

by Joshua Roth

After 57 years of mourning and booze,
I’m still elated to see L.A. lose.
No heroics. No ninth inning rally.
I’ll hate you forever –Walter O’Malley.

Hahahaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

 



Gone With Their Guts

by Michael X. Ferraro

Smashing Adams
and Climbing Stairs
Unwelcome Matts,
true Blue Despair

_______________

In 2008, portly Phillies pinch-hitter Matt Stairs clubbed a two-run homer in Game 4 of the NLCS against the Dodgers reliever Jonathan Broxton, en route to a Philadelphia series victory.  Last night, the hefty Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams launched a three-run shot in Game 4 of the NLDS to send the Dodgers down to defeat once again.
