The Awful Throw

by Stephen Jones

Ryan Raburn’s awful throw —
Perhaps the most errant ever made
(At least so far this MLB season,
As tabloids quickly blurted) —
Left Cleveland fans in disbelief.

It was painful to watch and
Made ESPN’s “Not Top 10”

But, as one pundit did remark,
While Raburn is a Golden Glover
This one errant bit of fallibility
Reinforces our short-term memory and
“What’ve you done for me lately?”
