AL West Preview
The A’s playoff losses prompt queries
And everyone has their own theories.
My key to survive
The dreaded game five
Is simply to sweep the dang series.
The monkey has seen no upheaval
Since the last Series fly ball retrieval.
Though the team is the same,
It’s a whole new ballgame
If the injury bug spreads its evil.
While mermaids sing “Younger!” and “Quicker!”,
The Mariners’ glow starts to flicker.
Though their hair is now thinning,
They are still somehow winning;
Forgetting that “older” means “sicker”.
Despite their new manager, Buck,
The Rangers just seem to be stuck.
Their hitting, once more,
Quite often will score,
And the pitching will still really suck.
