Jints fans cheered first game, won nine to none,
“Sweep next two, leapfrog Bums, they is done!”
. But next 17 runs said,
. “Jints blanked leapfrog is dead,
Even if Kershaw should lose final one.”

Moe Berg was both a catcher and spy,
And the Big Leagues’ most erudite guy.
Spoke languages many,
But couldn’t hit in any
Unless curve ball hung up “lettered” high.
By Stuart Shea
The Royals don’t think that they’re winners,
The Royals don’t think they’re beginners.
They won’t buy and won’t sell,
Which may be just as well
If they want to remain others’ dinners.

Darwin Barney is out of a job
One more part of the unemployed mob
. To see his kid’s birth
. He ceded his berth
Now at the playground will hobnob.

Johnny Cueto’s AB was not bueno
Failed to bunt, so he went all volcano.
Slammed his bat on his leg
to crack like an egg
But it DIDN’T — so now he’s in pain-o.
