Division Series Preview

The first round of playoffs begins
With the Yanks playing host to the Twins.
If Minnesota can score
This one won't be a bore,
But if not, New York easily wins.

If the Marlins decide to omit
The chance to let Barry Bonds hit
They will still, in my mind,
Need somehow to find
A way to defeat Jason Schmidt.

Atlanta postseason? Ho hum.
Their presence is making me numb.
The Cubs! Holy Cow!
In the playoffs! Oh, wow!
Let's hope Dusty won't do something dumb.

If Hudson and Zito and Foulke
Get beat up by Manny's big stroulke,
Oakland cries yet more tears
Having lost four straight years,
Unless Boston finds new ways to choulke.

No one, from what I can see,
Deserves the AL MVP.
It seems, although I'm not sure why,
That losing teams need not apply,
And when we look at winning teams,
No one had a Year of Dreams.
So let's default to second place,
And say that A-Rod won the race.

Dry brown leaves cluster
beneath the barren branches
of a fruitless tree.

Empty plastic cups,
hot dog wrappers, peanut shells:
waste of a season.

The sweet swing of Pujols
has very very few holes,
but the big bat of Barry
is the most very very.

Manny's Sick Leave

When Manny Ramirez got sick,
He wouldn't go swing his big stick,
And then he ignored
The mad media horde;
Is it his head or his skin that is thick?

The Japanese Military

Military spending causes Japan anxiety.
It's "nothing short of humbug in adult society."

Rookie of the Year

by Score Bard

In the NL,
is Willis, Dontrelle.
Cabrera, Miguel
is a Marlin, as well.
Reyes, Jose
as well as Seo, Jae
plus Wigginton, Ty
are each a Met guy
but are not outpacin'
their mate Phillips, Jason.
Montreal has Day, Zach
who got hurt but came bach
and Vargas, Claudio
whom I also applaudio.
The strikeout/walk ratio
of Ramirez, Horatio
does not really sway
like the Brave Hodges, Trey.
St. Lou got to know
the surprising Hart, Bo.
Podsednik, Scott
has really been hot.
The flying Byrd, Marlon
Is the Phillies' young darlon.
Not much could prepariome
for Robertson, Jeriome
who along with Lidge, Brad
make Houston not bad.
Williams, Jerome
makes Pac Bell his home,
as does Foppert, Jesse
who is sometimes impresse.
But I cannot abandon
my choice of Webb, Brandon.

The AL could pitch
arms like Harden, Rich.
Another to like
Was MacDougal, Mike.
A good future's facin'
the Tribe's Davis, Jason.
Don't bet a casino
against Lopez, Aquilino.
You can take a good chance
on young Carter, Lance.
And Soriano, Rafael
also threw really well.
Two words for a Yankee:
Rodriguez, Frankie.
Teixeira, Mark,
hit balls out of the park,
while Baldelli, Rocco
also showed socko.
Detroit's Munson, Eric,
could make balls atmospheric,
while his mate Monroe, Craig
is a real powderkeg,
like the Tribe's Gerut, Jody
whose bat is explody.
And they're thankful to have his
young friend Hafner, Travis.
But in the AL
I pick Berroa, Angel
who wins neck-and-necky
over Matsui, Hideki.
