SHAW ON SPORTS: NATS TOWN IN TIME
HOW DO YOU BUILD A BALLCLUB?
Twas the night before Spring Training,
And all through Viera,
Folk wondered and mused
Are the Powers confused?
Or will Bryce Harper and
Strasburg be duly amused
At the sight of all these multi-multi-tiered
Prospects, former Marlins, Cubs, perhaps
Even an Oriole or a Jay. Gee!
The whole menagerie!
Can they field, is their pitch
An ace every time, or more in keeping with
Slime, can’t you see?
Are these prospects truly
“Werth” it, or will Nats Town merely be
Rocked by another Phillies’ IED?
