No MLB free agents are ever going to be signed again. So how about a poll? The options are all links to the poems if you would like to read them to become familiar with them prior to voting. Y'all need a little culture IMO.

Whoever voted WTF is lacking in social grace.

I consider any GRB post by Jocephus as poetry. Does that count?

Me too.

The best times you're had
Have been with your Mom and your Dad
And a bat and a ball and a glove.

From the first time you played
Till the last time you prayed
It's been a simple matter of love.

Jack Kerouac's baseball haiku:

Empty baseball field --
A robin,
Hops along the bench
