With Clemens' and Pettitte's new faces
The Astros are tossing all aces,
While their hitters' abilities,
Despite some senilities,
Puts plenty of runners on bases.
If you trust that my dreams can foresee,
A wild card contender they'll be.
Why not in first?
Perhaps they are cursed,
Despite adding Hawkins and Lee.
Pujols is worth an ovation.
I also profess admiration
For Woody and Morris,
The thing I abhor is
The rest of the Cardinal rotation.
I like what the Reds have been doing,
The youngsters that they've been pursuing.
Though Wagner, Kearns, Dunn
Will end up outwon,
They'll still be a team that's worth viewing.
The Sexson trade leaves me unsure:
Is their whole brand new infield a cure?
It matters little;
Their pitching's too brittle.
Just wait 'til those farmhands mature!
Pittsburgh's a passionate city.
Being stuck with this team is a pity.
There's no way to waffle:
This team will be awful,
But at least their home ballpark is pretty.
