Waterlooed

by the Village Elliott

For last night’s ninth inning loss, Cardinals 3, Giants 2

During Jints’ pitching change interlude,
Team’s reliever preemptively booed.
Home crowd’s seen it before,
When the Cards tied the score–
Team’s ninth inning’s again “Waterlooed”.

Backing Into the Title, or How the Clinch Stole Christmas

by Hilary Barta

The Cardinals lose, so Cubs win.
Should the party at Wrigley begin?
Or is making it rain
By spraying champagne
Committing a Cardinal sin?

The Ghost of Post-Seasons Past

by Hilary Barta

To October the Cubbies are cruising
But to homies the subject’s confusing
By fears we are daunted
For years we’ve been haunted
By knowing our club’s knack for losing.

See Cy Young

by Hilary Barta

Kyle Hendricks, no ace all a-glitter,
Ain’t trending on Facebook or Twitter,
So isn’t it strange
This wiz with the change
Contends for a late fall no-hitter?

The Mets Have a New Outfielder

by Stuart Shea

Brandon Nimmo
Sure ain’t no dimmo.
Don’t come from Pismo and
Don’t use no gizmo.
When viewed thru a prismo,
He just wants what’s hismo.
And if he hits like a wizmo,
The Mets will not quiz mo’.
