Best Record in American League Haiku

by Stephen Jones

Baseball’s first-place race
“Houston . . . we have no problem”
Astros flying high

 



Yankees 11, Tampa 5

by Stephen Jones

CC ends his drought
A-Rod’s homer–number eight
Yankee team–gelling

 



Tigers 4, White Sox 1

by Stephen Jones

Four-game home streak snapped
Throwback unies didn’t work
Detroit won the game

 



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

 



National League Central 2015 Spring Training Haiku

By Stuart Shea

Cubs
A Sure Thing is not
called “A Sure Thing” unless it
hasn’t happened yet

Reds
Jason Marquis back?
Surely this is a sign that
the world is ending.

Brewers
For one final spring,
Aramis Ramirez tries
to avoid diving

Pirates
Could Clint Hurdle
be the Bucs’ final hurdle
to winning a title?

Cardinals
Some with a fresh start
Will soar higher than they could
Down in the southland
