Baseball: That 'Ol Dh Debate - Poem by Cretan Maineiac
'It's absurd to expect the fans to pay good money &
watch a guy who can't generate an average in three
figures, ' say some, while balancing a bullpen
deep w/ a bench full of old guys who can man a
guys w/ football-addled shoulders who
bloop singles and slice doubles &
run the bases, or a
big, 'ol homerun guy, a DH who can
come in, bop one or walk & preserve the
put on a glove and maybe bat again.
DHs all over the bench, good-hit/no-
maybe, something so simple as a
who can hit? But the
roster's not long enough & the player's association has no
two-dimensional players who can generate an average in three figures,
fill the scorecard w/ able hands, &
please the patrons in the stands.
