Yankees 8 / Tigers 4 – 08/27/2014

by Stephen Jones

Detroit spent good money for an ace
To make their play in the pennant race,
But the Yankees made a mess of Price:
He was shell-shocked and put on ice.

Detroit’s future is fast getting fuzzy,
Or, as Yogi once said, “It gets late early.”
When it was all said and done tonight,
In Motown The Price Was (Not) Right.

    And today the Evil Empire has chance
    To its wild-card hopes enhance
    By humbling a jejune Mud Hen rook
    Who’s at the rubber ’cause the Cats forsook

    To sign sufficient pitching depth
    Leaving Tiger fans berepth.
