10 August 2017: Around the team, our looks as sharp as spears

Around the team, our looks as sharp as spears
That pierce the air, just like the balls we hit
In every field. Production that brings tears
Of joy to fans keeps lifting the spirit!
Immediately, Kiké gave us lead
By clearing all the bases with a line
Drive double into left! It filled the need
To get out early and make the end fine.
Reptiles tried to rally, and got close
When Morrow let the lead decrease to two.
But we trust Kenley since he always shows
The door to those that try a clever coup!
Back home, they’ve landed to host the Padres,
So Hill will pitch to keep our winning ways!

9 August 2017: We’ve tired a team for the eightieth time

We’ve tired a team for the eightieth time,
And from behind we came to pull it off!
The first strike from another Cody dime,
His thirty third – it makes our rivals scoff.
Wood looked alright, but by himself he could
Not win for us; ‘Twas up to Joc and Puig.
The first man dubbed to right to tie it good,
Then Yasiel gave hell and lead was swigged!
Our bullpen (Josh and Jansen) kept at bay
The Diamondbacks’ desires to retrieve
A lead they once possessed, but we said “nay”
And were content with what we did achieve!
It is start two for Yu in his blue gear.
To victory, we hope his arm can steer!

8 August 2017: Sometimes the game ain’t meant for us to win

Sometimes the game ain’t meant for us to win.
Despite our many positives last night
And a good start from Kenta, we said fin
Without the lead and failed to solve the plight.
JT went yard two times and Puig leaped high
To rob a dong, but in the end it did
Not matter, for a grand slam stained our try
To make it five straight wins – restart the bid!
The bullpen stunk unusually indeed,
But it’s just one bad game (that’s what I hope).
Today’s a new day to recite the creed
To believe in the Dodger magic’s scope!
An old friend we must face in Mister Zack,
But we’ve got Wood to strike against their pack!

6 July 2017: THE MAGIC KEEPS ON BLESSING L.A.’s TEAM!

THE MAGIC KEEPS ON BLESSING L.A.’s TEAM!
IMPOSSIBLE IT SEEMED, BUT IT WAS DONE!
FROM THREE RUNS DOWN, THE COMEBACK WAS A DREAM
COME TRUE – AND OH, HOW EXCELLENTLY FUN!
BUT FIRST, RICH HILL: SO PLEASANT ON THE MOUND
BESIDES THE ONE HOME RUN THAT HE GAVE UP.
HE LOOKS SO STRONG OUT THERE, GIVES POUND FOR POUND
AND STRUCK’EM OUT AND STUCK’EM LIKE SYRUP.
OH, SAVIORS CHRIS AND COREY – PRAISE TO THEE
FOR ACTS HEROIC BEYOND EARTHLY REALM!
WHEN OFFENSE SUCKED AND MADE US FANS ANGRY,
IN HAPPINESS AND RELIEF DID YOU WHELM.
Tonight, we’ll see if Maeda can
Return to the man we know from Japan.

5 July 2017: Another win for Alex – what a shock!

Another win for Alex – what a shock!
That’s ten wins and a lowered ERA
Responding to the snub that made us balk,
But Wood paid no attention to the nay.
The other starter was not bad at all;
We just needed one run to take the game
Since Wood plus bullpen built a shutout wall
That made the Arizona bats look lame.
Yasmani got that double to advance
Chris T. from first to home real easily.
We hope that Alex Wood gets asked to dance
In All-Star stripes since Kershaw can’t journey.
A sweep of snakes? That sounds so sweet to hear!
Now only if Rich Hill plays on god tier.

4 July 2017: The smell of snakes surrounds the spikes on cleats #VoteJT

The smell of snakes surrounds the spikes on cleats
As Clayton furthered proof he’s o’er the rest,
Forbidding hits like litter on the streets
And gritting hard to prove that he’s the best.
Our ginger savior had a night as well
On his campaign to get that final vote
To take Miami in the All Stars’ cell,
So to him this sonnet I will devote.
How does a man who hits so well get snubbed
Like diamonds in the market’s dairy sect?
Consistency that no one else has rubbed,
Yet he has not seen a tad of respect.
So while Wood throws tonight (he also should
Be in the game), please vote, for JT’s good!

23 Apr 2017: For once, the big inning belonged to us

For once, the big inning belonged to us
As we defeated snakes with McCarthy
Leading the way with seven innings. Thus,
We made good use of opportunity.
A-Gon drove in two runs; Yasmani smacked
A dinger. Corey helped us get on base,
The bullpen returned to its natural act
And only let two people take a place.
Oh Brandon: your consistency is craved,
Our undefeated starter throwing strikes
Relentlessly. The road that you have paved
Prepares us for the challenge of tonight.
The first series against the orange and black
Will see which weakened team can come right back.
