But, soft! What light through yonder doorway breaks?

SCENE III. BUSCH STADIUM. CARDINALS' LOCKER ROOM.

Enter HOLLIDAY, CARPENTER, WAINWRIGHT

HOLLIDAY

What shall we do? I tire - we tire of games.

CARPENTER

If only fair Yadier were here now...

WAINWRIGHT

He would know what to say, what we should do -
Would know how to defeat the men that Brew.
[MOLINA appears in the doorway]
But, soft! What light through yonder doorway breaks?

MOLINA

I have returned to spit fire and spout rain!
Nor rain, wind, thunder, fire could terrify
more than life without beloved baseball.
That life is a hellish prison, my friends.
I tax not you, baseball, with unkindness,
You owe me no subscription. Let fall your
Horrible pleasure. Here I stand, your slave-
A poor, infirm, weak, and despised old man
Aged by cruel baseball and Mike Matheny.
So now I return to help my teammates
Play to obtain the title we have sought.
You have tried your best and honorably fought
But now they'll remember why 'thou shall not'!

Viva el Birdos
