Melky Melting

By Stuart Shea

How many chances will Melky get
To try and make us forget?

Once a prospect,
Now he’s not.
As leadoff man,
He ain’t so hot.

Where’s the power he used to show?
Where’s the speed?
Why can’t he throw?

K.C. may be the last stop.
When will the penny drop?

    As a Yankee fan – and aware of the Melky meltdown previous – I too wonder. With all the physical talent in the world, his “head” seems to lag behind. Big time.
