Leyland – A sonnet and an image macro.

February 25, 2012

I humbly present this Jim Leyland/spring training sonnet.  Nothing says modern and hip like a bad-ass sonnet. Also, sonnets are all romantic and shit, bitches love sonnets.


Jim Leyland Lakeland bound, His troops to meet.
New year, new sights, big Prince new star in camp
but know the guys he likes are Don and Clete
Detroit the pick to be the central champ

with Prince at first, Miguel will move to third
Now Jim must find a place to put B. Inge
but Brandon’s swing has most resembled turd.
His status as a pro now best is fringe.

Yet Leyland, Captain, Skip shall see us through
of Below, Turner, Smyly Jim will pick
Valverde yells and laughs each drill we do
will Henning ask of weight and be a dick?

LaRussa dense, so silly is that bloke.
Convert the Skip to Tofu, strip away his smoke?


Speaking of Jim, I love the skip. He has many  foibles but my favorite thing he does is respond to questions by diminishing the question or completely dismissing the premise of the question.  Things you might hear include:

“Well, I don’t know about that”

“I gotta tell you something about that…”

“I don’t think that’s necessarily what happened…”

“It’s not fair that…”

This is great when everyone gets carried away about matters that are really trivial.  But it is becomes funny when there really is something exceptional happening.
