Just as Bad, Chicago Style

By Stuart Shea

After two months of play and a carload of flubs,
Could the Sox really be just as bad as the Cubs?

It’s asked in Gage Park and Beverly pubs–
Could the Sox really be just as bad as the Cubs?

The starters are struggling; don’t speak of the subs!
Could the Sox really be just as bad as the Cubs?

It’s a long way to go to rate down with the scrubs,
But the Sox seem to be just as bad as the Cubs.

Both squads ranking under the mark of most clubs,
The Sox may end up just as bad as the Cubs.

It rankles a South Sider more than the nubs–
That the Sox really could be as bad as the Cubs.

    The Cubs seem surprisingly fine
    If not in the rain, in the shine.
    Whatever the weather,
    Stuff brings them together–
    Their record, if not the Red Line.
