15 October 2017 (NLCS, Game 2): BLESSED BY THE GINGER IS THIS HOLY LAND!

BLESSED BY THE GINGER IS THIS HOLY LAND!
WHEN BACKED INTO THE CORNER, HE PREVAILED
AND SENT THAT PITCH INTO THE GLOVE OF FAN!
OH, HOW THAT WONDROUS STRIKE JUST SAILED AND SAILED!
THE MIRRORING OF KIRK IS QUITE A SPOOK
FOR IT WAS TWENTY NINE YEARS TO THE DAY!
AMAZING THAT BOTH HIT A WALK-OFF NUKE!
EACH FAN TODAY SHOULD CELEBRATE AND SWAY!
FROM MIND, DO NOT ERASE THE BULLPEN’S JOB.
STUPENDOUS THEY HAVE BEEN – NO HITS IN EIGHT!
THIS VICTORY TASTES SWEET LIKE CORN ON COB,
BUT THIS WAR ISN’T OVER; UNSEALED FATE.
TO WRIGLEY WE WILL GO FOR AT MOST THREE,
AND YU WILL KICK IT OFF. PLEASE GIVE US GLEE!

2 September 2017, pt. 1: An anti-wondrous way to start the day

An anti-wondrous way to start the day
Is tying the game up, then losing grip
Upon that draw – one swing, and it’s away.
So thank you Pedro for your pitch’s slip.
But props to Turner for his proud attempt
To never count us out. And Cody too,
Who tied the Dodgers rookie record, kempt
By Mike Piazza. Man, that guy was true.
The bullpen pitched all game, but failed to keep
A bad team down. It seems we’ve hit a bump
Upon the path to playoffs; need to leap
The obstacles and get out of the slump.
Now later in the day, Yu got game two.
Which version did we get? How did he do?

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.

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!

26 July 2017: Another comeback! Thanks to Ginger Christ

Another comeback! Thanks to Ginger Christ,
We fought back from five down to nail the sweep!
Some shoddy early defense made hopes iced,
But in the end, we got a game to keep!
Our pitching was alright – the bullpen strong
Like diamonds underneath a gamma ray.
The dongs from Puig and Joc went far and very long,
And Chase was close to one – his hair so gray
But heart still burning! Wolverine’s sac fly
Was very strange, but it still tied the game!
Then JT came to say hello, goodbye!
And that’s five straight that we will gladly claim.
We have a day to rest before we take
On our worst enemies; Wood takes that wake.

23 July 2017: I do not think a win will heal the pain

I do not think a win will heal the pain
Residing in our greatest pitcher’s back.
Though walk offs always bring a lot of gain,
On this occasion, cheering on feels whack.
The offense gave its all, as Cody B
And Austin went yard to provide four runs.
But Kenley blew the save – how unlucky!
Before that, our relievers banged like guns.
A state of melancholy while He’s gone.
For four to six weeks, we will have to cope
And win a lot without His throwing brawn.
Return as soon as possible, we hope!
The men from Minnesota last night flew
From Michigan to here – they’ll face Ryu.

8 July 2017: We walk the walk, but talk about a game!

We walk the walk, but talk about a game!
The end was just the climax of it all.
When we drew four straight walks in the tenth frame,
We could not help but say “Well, that’s baseball!”
Sir Cody’s patience paid off with that walk,
And ‘lest we not forget his tying bomb
That took us off the loser’s chopping block,
Eventually restoring Dodger calm.
A rock from Joc was also hit real far,
Providing for the hottest team in town.
McCarthy came back strong; ’twas not bizarre.
And now we are the best, so please bow down.
There’s one more game before the Stars align.
It’s Kershaw day, and so the sun will shine!
