by Stephen Jones
In The Land of the Second Chance,
Remorseful A-Rod did repentance,
Will not be going to Cincinnati.
Few will shed tears about this, most likely,
But truth be told–he served his time.
Reality is: He’s passed his prime.
Now it’s marquee time . . . for Harper, for Trout.
And A-Rod? He’s simply lost his clout.
