March Baseball

by Stephen Jones

There is nothing to speak of, so far

Except, maybe, mega-contracts, buying the World Series
and demonic trades, and key pre-season injuries

The Yankees are back with battered fixations
The Marlins are simply trade-and-bait
The Nationals are openly trepadacious
The Phillies are, well, on the clock
San Francisco, so far, is blowing smoke
Los Angeles is spending its bank

. . . and the list goes on

Summertime passion is now full-time
obsession and has little to do with “the game”
