by Stephen Jones
Pretty compelling stuff, riders in the rough
Who enhance their mark on baseball history
Sparked by drugs. Maybe, just maybe
MLB is to blame. It sees profit & loss,
No, the essentials – financial gain –
And thinks, so long as it happened
Quietly, it is baseball gain.
So these riders of rawhide pitches
Made some switches, made some deals
With the eels of sports. But my thought
Is this: Once we, the fans, have tasted
Better, is it so easy to accept lesser?
