Giants Southpaws

by the Village Elliott

Again Giants southpaw with stubble
Gives World Series foes scoring trouble.
.    Last three Series Mad Baum
.    Won three games with aplomb;
Four score years ago it’s Carl Hubbell.

 



2014 Wild Card World Series

by The Village Elliott

Wild card teams took each league’s gonfalon,
Both the Giants and Royals now play on,
.     Well-matched World Series picks,
.     Think they’ll split the first six,
Best team wins seventh Game marathon.

 



Tweet, Tweet

by Jim Siergey

Excuse me for writing these words
but something like this can emerge.
If Giants are felled
and Royals are quelled,
this series will be … for the birds.

 



A Curmudgeonly Rant

by Jim Siergey

The Series, according to Hoyle,
should not contain Giant or Royal.
No “Wild Card” should be
in this pageantry–
to baseball tradition I’m loyal!

Jim Siergey can often be found in the electronic pages of The Third City.

 



Royals’ Playoff Hopes

by the Village Elliott

K.C.’s playoff hopes are alive,
But they ain’t Danced since  ’85.’
.   While Bengals from Motown
.   Know how to get down,
Royals may need George Brett to arrive.
