Big Pelf is small, Few hits at all (Clapclapclapclap) Deep in the heart of Texas!
After rain delay Mets avenge ’73 Where was Chris Cap then?
Dickey’s masterpiece Foiled by K-Rod; Turner Wins game Homer’s way
A giveaway night Fans don’t get a bobblehead But A’s sure get walks!
A late run flurry Can’t salvage Niese, who struggled Even on a curve
On nights like tonight You can squint and see Big Pelf As a staff anchor
A Reyes error Proves he’s human; late rally Falls a base hit short
A game-ending balk?!? Silver-lining comeback, but A ludicrous cloud
A Pagan homer Rain-soaked pitchers excel; Mets Back where they started
For once in Peach state Mets are northerners; ie. General Sherman
Pitching wins titles Alas! Not without hitting And baserunning, too
A late run barrage Serious Capuano Laughter by the end
A singles barrage Not enough to back Dickey Minus the key hit
Who knew such things weren’t against the rules? That outcomes like this were among a team’s tools After a season with Bay so bereft Mets got a hit from the guy playing left!
Bullpen had been on lead-killing spree Blown saves and holds far as eye could see Niese solved the problem, calm as can be Of 27 outs, Niese got 23
