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.
