St. Louis Cardinals


With Izzy and Edmonds and Drew

Hurt and replaced by a crew

Of Palmeiro, Marrero,

Kline and Fassero,

It’s tricky to guess how they’ll do.


Houston Astros


Where Kent once had Nen and Worrell,

It’s Wagner set up by Dotel.

But his favorite trade

Is the minutely made

Ballpark compared to Pac Bell.


Cincinnati Reds


With Kearns joining Griffey and Dunn

The Reds’ outfield sure will be fun.

While their hitting earns raves,

They’ll be digging their Graves

If their pitching yields run after run.


Pittsburgh Pirates


If Ramirez and Kendall come back

And Lofton and Sanders can hack

With the usual Giles,

You will see this year’s smiles

Won’t be laughs at the yellow and black.


Chicago Cubs


While Sosa belongs with the greats,

He’s gotten no help from his mates.

If the others won’t hit,

It’s so sad to admit,

The Cubs would be in Prior straits.


Milwaukee Brewers


A franchise-wide hole has been dug.

Yes, Sexson can certainly slug,

And I think I can say

That the pitching’s OK,

But the rest of that lineup is –Ugh!
