Late Season Funk in the AL East

by Stephen Jones

Everybody’s on the skids
Yankees, maybe Baltimore too
Throw in hot Tampa as well
And one wonders about Toronto

“Skidding” being short rides
in September – and who
comes out on top, well
a skid is a slide through
September, anybody’s guess

Players missed when it counts
wild pitches now a measure,
late-season swoons and rallies
and who plays in October

    Thanks for this: have only been following the AL East pennant drive sporadically of late….my bad. But will try to follow a little more closely, now that it’s crunch time.
