Stingy Zack Greinke

by Michael X. Ferraro

All zeroes from Zack’s what you get
Be you Cubbie or Nat or Met.
His stuff is top-shelf
But Greinke himself
Would say, “I ain’t caught Orel yet.”

Michael’s hilarious football novel Circus Catch is now available from Amazon.

 



Wrigley-Turvy

by Hilary Barta

All night in my bedroom I tossed,
Excited a line has been crossed.
Although dazed and confused
And half-crazed, I’m excused:
The Cubbies have won more than lost.

 

Hilary Barta draws for Sponge-Bob and Garbage Pail Kids comix, and also runs the noir  limerick site LimerWrecks.

 



The Duke of Tralee

by the Village Elliott

For Roger Bresnahan

Jints’ catcher, start of last century
First in “Bigs” to guard his shin and knee
McGraw’s Irish gamer
Intense Hall-of-Famer
Roger Bresnahan, “Duke of Tralee”

On Saturday, June 20, Buster Posey became the first Giants catcher to steal a base and hit a grand slam in the same game in 107 years since “The Duke of Tralee.”

 



Allegation’s Disillusion

by the Village Elliott

Sat in Wrigley with Great Uncle Art,
Local White Sox fan from the team’s start.
Asked ’bout his Sox team Black,
He looked 50 years back,
I could feel dark angst still breaks his heart.

Allegations my childhood team raided
By hacking; legacy degraded.
Feel like fan of Black Sox,
Or Bill Belichick’s jocks.
Perhaps I’m just too f*cking jaded.

I don’t think it mere disillusion
Created by Cardinals’ collusion.
In game’s hacking scandal
The league might mishandle,
But fact of FBI’s inclusion.



The French Made to Mop Up

by Michael X. Ferraro

The pitching stint of Francoeur
Shoulda been one inning fewer.
But the Phils’ bullpen phone
Had zero dial tone.
Chase Utley’s opinion? “Manure!”

 

Michael’s new book Circus Catch is now available.
