7 October 2017 (NLDS, Game 2): Disturbed the snakes we have! Just need one more

Disturbed the snakes we have! Just need one more
To move onto the next phase of the plan!
Our dreams are close and knocking at the door,
And we have sizzlin’ reptiles on the pan.
Before, we struggled much ‘gainst Robbie Ray.
But now, it seems the nightmares are not haunting;
Shown in four runs that we sprayed
Against him! Now that task seems far from daunting.
Blue arms, for the most part, were prestige!
A mirrored effort from those in the back
Of last night’s lineup: Logan, Austin, Puig
Combined went eight for twelve! They had the knack!
This is a chance to sweep, sauté, and swim
Again in Zona’s pool. Yu, make them grim!

25 September 2017: A grand amount of victories we have!

A grand amount of victories we have!
One hundred on our belt, but we are not
Stopping right there. Last night, Darvish and staff
Put on a show; the Padres had no shot!
Four RBIs from Logan surely helped
As well as Barnes’ three-run bomb to extend
The lead. Oh how San Diego’s bats whelped
While color splashed our bats like rainbow’s bend!
Real close to clinching home advantage is
This team, just a few more wins gets it done.
The sunset of the season’s gonna kiss
Those beach-scheme seats when all is said and won.
Here’s one last home start penned for Alex Wood
And against San Diego, he’s been good.

17 September 2017: Unfortunately, we did not use brooms

Unfortunately, we did not use brooms
To say goodbye to nation’s capital.
The bullpen’s fallout has emitted fumes
That beckon me to cover up in wool.
At Stripling’s fault, Zimmerman knocked it out
And tamed our rediscovered wild ways.
Ryu was not bad, but could not get out
Of the fourth inning – just one of those days.
Our only offense came from Logan’s hit
That brought in Puig. The bullpen worries me,
For this team we must face again with grit
Or else, no rings for us; that won’t bring glee.
To Philadelphia, the team will go
And starting off with Kershaw can’t be woe.

9 September 2017: The inexplicable sad streak remains

The inexplicable sad streak remains
As it seems we’ve forgotten how to win,
Like our mind has been trapped in sombre rains.
Have we committed some bush unknown sin?
Sir Wood got rocked; the pun has no intent.
The offense did real good job indeed
As Puig doubled in two to make a dent,
Then Logan and Andre made the ball bleed.
But it was not enough to even tie
Once in the game. The pain just carries on
To the next day. I do believe they try
And are just having trouble finding song.
Please, Rich, oh please: deliver us your best!
And offense: make your mark so we aren’t stressed!

25 August 2017: Maeken led our pitchers’ dominance

Maeken led our pitchers’ dominance
Which silenced Brewers’ bats to just one hit,
And that went far but was their only dance
As we put up three runs to drill the bit!
The first came from a bomb by Logie Bear:
His first in a long time! Then in the fifth,
Yaz broke the tie by the hitting the ball where
No fielder was. And then, when in the sixth,
The Wild Horse unleashed his power straight
To center field – an extra run to help
The bullpen feel secure in saving. Great
We are, at ninety-one – no need to whelp!
A man named Chicken Strip makes a spot start
Tonight, and hope I do he does his part.

16 August 2017: There’s always someone new to save the day!

There’s always someone new to save the day,
And Puig was last night’s hero in the end!
When down by two, we don’t just go away.
We fight like gladiators. Puig’s our friend
And hero! Though Yu’s birthday outing was
Not great, he still went six despite some pain
Inside his back. The bullpen then showed jaws
That let their bats pour on the Sox some rain.
The rally in the ninth: kicked off by Cody’s
Pinch-hit single; Logan brought him in.
Then Austin singled, giving Puig the keys
To walk it off and get another win!
Another day for this great team to rest
Before A-Gon comes back and Hill shows zest.

6 August 2017: Korean dominance and Dodger dongs

Korean dominance and Dodger dongs
Were all we served while sweeping those in Queens!
Ryu shined bright like glitter, throwing strong
And letting just one hit pass through his means.
The offense rocked right from the very start
Thanks to the bats of Logan and Sir Barnes.
Then later on, t’were dingers from the hearts
Of Turner, then a thunderous alarm
Shot from the strength of Cody! What a swing
The young lad has; we see this every day.
It’s little things we do that let us sing
Like soul train mockingbirds that never stray!
The team is off today before a fight
With snakes so far behind, they’re out of sight.
