Deadline Day!

By Stuart Shea

Deadline day is coming!
Whose lives will be uprooted?
What players will be traded
Like cargo to be scooted?

Will the Yankees snag a pitcher,
The Tigers a receiver?
The White Sox need a hitter,
The Dodgers a reliever.

The Diamondbacks are out to deal,
The Cubs would like to trade,
And Kansas City always wants
To trim payroll a shade.

Ted Lilly and Roy Oswalt,
Dan Haren and Dotel,
Dunn’s a done deal also
Once their clubs decide to sell.

So ship out all those veterans,
Young prospects for to grab,
’cause clubs in flag contention
Always have to take a stab.

  1. Nahro wrote,

    God is in the business of doing heart trnpaslants. Once He gives sincere people a heart that beats for Him, those persons can then do what God commands, which is To love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. (Deuteronomy 6:5) Jesus agreed, quoting this command as the most important one: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all yor soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. (Mark 12:29)To be whole-souled is to use every part of our being including our brains. That is the Christian perspective. A Muslim would need to respond giving their view on your comment.
