brewers won; phillies are losing in the 9th as i type. if the latter result holds, the cardinals can move back into 2nd place in the wild-card chase by winning tonight.
red baron is dealing w/ a connectivity issue this evening, which leaves me to compose the wednesday-night haiku. i fully support this tradition ---- i have the impression the cards are well above .500 on haiku nights. unfortunately, the haiku form has always defeated me; just not enough syllables, dammit. the limerick has always been a more comfortable verse for me, so with apologies i offer the following:
there lives a cub southpaw named lilly
who oft makes the cardinals hit illy
on september the 10
he'll try once again
and the question is: won't he, or will he?
robert frost, eat your heart out.
