Their boss was an ass,
Who's lacking in cash.
Frank, sell the team, we all pray!

There once was a team in L.A.,
That went 22-8 in May.
But George was still bad
Some say we've been had
Our choice is to neuter or spay

Michelle said...

There once was a team in L.A.,
That went 22-8 in May;
That went up in smoke,
‘Cause the ‘pen was a joke,
Make this pain in my gut go away!

Now the bullpen's deranged,
So our strategy changed.
Six innings, then a weather delay.

FUCK,
SHIT,
ASS, BALLS, OLÉ!

(That's all I've got for now. I'll try to be more creative later.)

Greg Finley said...

Haha, @Josh, I also thought of submitting one with "Fuck" for every word.

Neeebs said...

There once was a team in LA,

That once went 22-8 in May.

But armpits they fucked.

And now they just suck.

And Ned keeps on tellin us its OK

There once was a team in L.A.,
That went 22-8 in May;
Now they're killing their fans,
Like a guy with soft hands,
But they still aren't as bad as O.J.!

Here's my entry:

There once was a team in L.A.,
That went 22-8 in May;
    Made the 0.500 June,
    Seem like a big swoon,
As we didn't know what'd come our way.

Greg Finley said...

There once was a team in L.A.,
That went 22-8 in May.
Then each day that passed
They got closer to last.
Hell, let's let Anderson play!

Mr. Customer said...

Since Neeebs is here...

There once was a team in L.A.,
That went 22-8 in May.
Lately, we've found
The pitching's as sound
As the Roman defense of Cannae.

There once was a team in L.A.,
That went 22-8 in May
But the 'pen went to shit
The stars couldn't hit
And the Gnats laugh away.


Really my first thought was each line was going to be, "And now they suck," but Josh kind of beat me to it.

Ryan said...

There once was a team in L.A.,
That went 22-8 in May.
But the Pitching was thin,
And they couldn't buy a win,
They've gone 20-23 since that day.

MR. F said...

There once was a team in L.A.,
That went 22-8 in May.
Then they couldn't stop losing;
I turned to boozing,
And now the judge sent me to A.A.

Mr. Customer said...

@Mr. F

+1

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

There once was a team in LA,
That went 22-8 in May,
soon they needed pitching,
and the fanbase was twitching,
but Frank still heartily said "No way!"

Neeebs said...

@MC

Cannae=underachievement
Cannae=overconfidence
Cannae=Loserrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

John G said...

There once was a team in L.A.,
That went 22-8 in May.
Then Manny got hurt,
Bullpen started to spurt,
Time to trade the free agents away.

Eric Karros said...

My favorites are Mr F's, FB's, and Mr C's. And drewdez gets style points for rhyming 'ass' with 'cash'.

Mr. Customer said...

@neeebs
I think the word you're looking for is "huuubris"

I thought the analogy was apt.

Mr. Customer said...

That's a winner, EK.

Eric Karros said...

Second entry:

There once was a team in L.A.,
That went 22-8 in May;
It was fun while it lasted,
But now those damn bastards,
Are playing as bad as I rhyme!

Eric Karros said...

My re-posting makes Mr C look like Nostradamus!

Mr. Customer said...

I (fore)saw that.

Matt said...

There once was a team in L.A.,
That went 22-8 in May.
Now dreams of October,
Seem all but over,
Unless pitching is on the way!

drewdez said...

Thanks for the style points, EK! Had to use a little poetic license there.

Josh S. said...

Real entry:

There once was a team in L.A.,
That went 22-8 in May;
Now they've gone lame,
With no one guy to blame,
Still I hope the Earth swallows G.A.!

QuadSevens said...

There once was a team from L.A.,
That went 22-8 in May;
They've taken a swan dive,
Now ranked 4th out of five,
Even the Old Spice Guy is saying "Oi Vey!"

Dusty Baker said...

There once was a team in L.A.,
That went 22-8 in May.
Then they won the championship over Boston in June.

That went 22-8 in May.
But interleague games,
And pitching to blame
Have made it a funeral, not a soiree

Eric Karros said...

Nice Old Spice Guy reference Quad!

Ok, my last entry:

There once was a team in L.A.,
That went 22-8 in May,
But if their next win takes
As much time as Smonkstakes,
We might as well call it a day.

Before that, April stank.
In July, the team sank.
Will August just cause more dismay?
