Game Haiku – 06/03/06 – Cubs 8, Cards 5

Mulder gets shelled.
Pujols gets injured.  I cry
like weeping willow.

Game Haiku – 06/02/06 – Cubs 5, Cards 4 in 14 innings

From hero to goat:
Rolen’s Buckner moment wipes
out his RBIs.

Waiting for Edmonds News

EdmondspainI apologize for not posting for a few days but I’ve been at church praying novenas for Jim Edmonds.  I searched in vain for a patron saint for the miraculous cure of sports hernias.  I thought we’d hear some definite news today but they are saying they will wait until tomorrow to decide whether or not to put Jim on the DL.  Sigh. 

In more positive news, we won the series with the ‘Stros! I am hopeful that Yadi’s recent RBIs and doubles are signs he is breaking out of his slump.  And the recent pitching of Marquis and Reyes sure was a confidence-builder.

Game Haiku – 05/31/06 – Cards 4, Astros 3


Our bullpen redeems
itself, hangs tough. The Gooch gets
clutch hit. Series won.

Get a cool Gooch shirt

Game Haiku – 05/30/06 – Astros 6, Cards 3

Reyes looks good, but
bullpen falters. That Killer
B named Craig stung us.

Game Haiku – 05/29/06 – Cards 3, Astros 1

Pujols hits the game-
winning homer. My haikus
are repetitive.
