A Pox Upon the Up and Running Baseball One-World

I pledge no allegiance – to the flag,

Of the united big league of baseball,

But to the sweet memory – of Stan the Man,

As they soon move the DH – into old NL land.

Pox to the republic – for which he now plans,

One baseball nation – under Bud,

With liberty and revenue for some.

    He does what works for the owners,

    A lot of teams have had injury problems. But the Yankees haven’t had Pinieda or Mariano Rivera all season, Sabbathia is out with an injury, Pettitte wasn’t around for most of the season and now he’s out with a broken leg, Hughes is erratic, Gardner hasn’t played a game yet, Chamberlain hasn’t played a game yet, Swisher had down time with an injury, A-Rod isn’t really A-Rod, catcher is uncharacteristically their least productive position, they just made a deal to get Chad Qualls who really pitched poorly yesterday … how do the Yabkees have the best record in baseball? I could see how they might stagger to the top of a division, but the best record in baseball?
