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’!”

 



New Genius on Scene

by the Village Elliott

G.M. Billy Beane’s trading blunder,
Rent the A’s, “Money Ball” asunder.
.     Now new genius on scene
.     Is across the Bay seen;
Brian Sabean stole Beane’s thunder.

 



Off-Season Fan

by the Village Elliott

Though Giants’ parade took fans higher,
We now must see what Jints require
.   To retain gonfalon
.   Before teams’ core is gone,
As we sit by hot stove’s relit fire.

Though each season team questions his heft,
Playoffs prove Pablo Sandoval’s deft,
.    Since shown on him they count,
.    To resign, paramount!
Who’d play hot corner if Panda left?

 



Repayment

by the Village Elliott

How ironic first Series replay
Reversed turns game with double play,
.  For three decades ago,
.  Royals won when it ain’t so,
Now Don Denkinger’s gift they repay.

 



Super Non-Collider

by Jim Siergey

A hit off of Bum that was erred
but Gordon was stopped there at third.
.   To home was not steered
.   Was “Posey Rule” feared?
A Shot ‘Round the World now unheard.
