Cubs baseball, and I mean real Cubs baseball, gets underway just the day after tomorrow! Squee! Excitement!
For now, here is the second installment of Rhyme-o-rama 2012. Look for the final one to be published some time before the first pitch of the season is thrown out.
David DeJesus: The bunting champ.
But what will he accomplish outside of spring camp?
James Russell may posess some hustle,
But he isn’t a batter, so it doesn’t matter.
Jeff Baker has earned a place in my heart,
He excels in that benchy/utility part.
We got this new chap by the name of Maholm,
When he faces the batters I hope he will stall ’em.
Young Steve Clevenger out-caught Castillo
Now our backup backstop he shall be-o.
I know next to nothing of Mr. Joe Mather
But I am inclined to like him, rather.
1B: Anthony Rizzo waits in the wings.
For now, LaHair will handle things.
