AL East Preview
New York Yankees
A couple of years since they’ve won
Makes George vow they won’t be outdone
Regardless of cost.
Yet if they win, they’ve still lost
The joy of surprise that’s so fun.
Boston Red Sox
Their highlights hit ESPN,
The starters are good, so’s the pen,
Yet while Boston looks great
What strange twist of fate
Is slouching towards Fenway again?
Toronto Blue Jays
An intriguing team, J.P.’s Jays.
They’re starting a youthful new phase
Which looks, not by chance,
At a furtive first glance
To resemble the ’99 A’s.
Be still. Don’t expose yourselves.
Less said, the better.
Tampa Bay Devil Rays
Rays fans will wish that they knew
The day that he finally blew
The roof off the dome
Of his new chosen home:
The eruption of big Mount St. Lou.
