25 October 2017 (World Series, Game 2): An epic battle back-and-forth, but sad

An epic battle back-and-forth, but sad
It is that in the end, we did not win.
So many balls sailed far; the bats were rad!
Insanity came at the ninth inning
When Kenley let a shot to tie the game.
Then in the bottom, Cody barely missed
A walk-off shot; the wind is what I blame!
Then Josh Fields sucked and two straight shots were dished.
But next, Puig crushed the candy, brought us close,
Then Kiké brought in Logan: tie revived!
B-Mac then let two score. Hope did not doze
When Charlie made it close! But end arrived.
Exhausted is my state, I need a rest.
Yu’s got game 3; I pray he does his best.

19 October 2017 (NLCS, Game 5): WE’VE CLINCHED OUR TICKET TO THE PROMISED LAND!

WE’VE CLINCHED OUR TICKET TO THE PROMISED LAND,
WHERE WE WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO WIN IT ALL!
WITH LOVE AND BOMBS FROM KIKÉ (ONE WAS GRAND),
IT SEEMS LIKE WE WILL WIN THE WAR OF FALL!
KERSHAW LOOKED GREAT, AND WITH A GIANT SCORE
TO PROP HIS DOMINANCE, THERE WAS NO FEAR!
SO AFTER SIX, THE BULLPEN DID THE CHORE
WITH GRACE UNMATCHED; THIS SERIES, THEY HAVE SMEARED!
SO SERIES MVP WAS SHARED BY TWO:
THE DOUBLE-T TEAM, SIRS CHRIS AND JT!
SO NOW WE WAIT TO SEE EXACTLY WHO
WE FACE. HOUSTON OR NEW YORK? WHO’LL IT BE?
WHICHEVER TEAM, THEY’LL HAVE TO FACE THE ACE.
WHO ELSE WOULD START BUT KERSHAW IN THIS PLACE?

24 August 2017: With ninety wins, they seem invincible!

With ninety wins, they seem invincible!
Enough offense was found to help Ryu
As he threw six frames with his arsenal
To tell the Pirates that their streak is through.
A river-shot from Grandy helped us out,
As well as Kiké’s late insuring hit.
Then in the eighth, a back to back of clout
Which made sure that the series won’t be split.
No other team has eighty – how insane!
The record’s off the chart; we need more space
To document the stats that show our reign
In this terrific season full of grace!
At last, we come back home, but just for three.
So Kenta kicks it off – Maeken’s free!

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!

30 July 2017: Where does our comeback magic emanate?

Where does our comeback magic emanate?
For Farmer, in his first swing, won the game
To sweep the hated ones and take eight straight!
So put that stretched-out jersey in a frame!
Both starters, Bum and Ryu, showed up strong,
Then Fields gave up a home run that untied.
But after Chase’s hustle, Puig came ‘long!
The rest you know, but there were other plays
Like Kiké throwing Crawford out at home!
The boys induce a state of Odoacer
That makes every foe fall just like Rome!
The deadline is today, and how I hope
We’ll make a move that moves us up the rope!

19 July 2017: The showers poured, but our streak’s marching on!

The showers poured, but our streak’s marching on!
A shortened game and rain can’t cool our bats
So hot, the Arctic couldn’t even dawn
Their flames. No kidding, these are just the facts!
Oh Kiké had a night: two bombs to left
That left the Sox without a word to say,
Along with Chris and Corey’s far-gone hefts.
Our offense overall was sweet array.
Forget not Kenta whose five frames were sweet!
That’s all he needs to do to make us smile.
And with that, we achieved another sweep!
Eleven straight – we’re racking up the miles.
Back to their home, the Dodgers come to rule
With B-Mac taking charge to keep us cool!

27 June 2017: Our thanks to Kenta’s swell return to form!

Our thanks to Kenta’s swell return to form!
Those seven scoreless innings did the trick
In shocking angels like a thunderstorm,
Reminding who is head of Cali’s clique.
The only numbers put upon the board
Came in the six’s bottom, courtesy
Of Cody’s scoring single, then we scored
Some more when Joc went yard! A cup of tea
The rest of the game was. Let’s not forget
A play that Kiké made while fielding short:
He dived, then from his knees, threw out the threat!
Delivered was the ball when in his court.
To Anaheim we go at Ryu’s reign;
I feel a victory upon the plane.
