Since the A’s, with late season swoon
(Cross-Bay rival Jints, started in June,
. Lately stopped their free fall),
. Have backs up against wall,
Next Bay Bridge Series due on Blue Moon.
by the Village Elliott
Jints fans cheered first game, won nine to none,
“Sweep next two, leapfrog Bums, they is done!”
. But next 19 runs said,
. “Jints blanked leapfrog is dead,
Doubt Kershaw will lose final one.”

Not to be nosey,
But what has taken so long
For your bat to shower
The Giants with power?
I miss that “Bye Bye, Baby” song!
by James Finn Garner
Of all the things that vex the Cubs –
That same sad old refrain –
From day games to Bartman to billy goats
We can add to that roster “rain”.
Rolling out the tarp may look simple
Hardly “mechanical”, ’tis true
Yet what can go wrong surely will go wrong
For those bleeding Cubby blue
The Giants have something to play for
And were lucky to get the game suspended.
The Cubs are still playing “Chicago’s Got Talent!”
But watching them can’t be recommended.

“Come on, Hobbs! You’re up!!”
Pick up a bat, and do it!
The Cubs fans blamed Steve Bartman.
Who’s to say?
Seems like they blew it.
Pierzynski punched Cubs catcher–
Now A.J.’s Saint Louis red;
Oakland has some Athletics,
Coco puts pitchers to bed.
Another earthquake series?
White Sox got Cy Young, and Rookie.
Shave those beards–
You lot not Wookiees
