"Baseball's Sad Lexicon" - Maryland version



With apologies to Flanklin P. Adams, the author of the original (look it up).

These are the saddest of possible words:
"Bregman to Jones to Katz"
Trio of Tigers and fleeter than birds,
"Bregman to Jones to Katz"
Ruthlessly picking our ACC bubble
Turning a Maryland hit into a double*
Words that are heavy with nothing but trouble,
"Bregman to Jones to Katz"

*that is, a double play

OK, here is the original version, from 1910: the Cubs are the Chicago Cubs and the Giansts are the New York Giants. Just meant this as a shout out to our team for the opening game Friday.

quote:

These are the saddest of possible words:
"Tinker to Evers to Chance."
Trio of bear cubs, and fleeter than birds,
Tinker and Evers and Chance.
Ruthlessly pricking our gonfalon bubble,
Making a Giant hit into a double –
Words that are heavy with nothing but trouble:
"Tinker to Evers to Chance."

What if it's:

"Jones to Bregman to Katz"
or
"Ibarra to Jones to Katz"
or
"Katz to Bregman to *insert pitcher here*"
or
"*insert pitcher here* to Jones/Bregman to Katz"

I'd imagine Thursday might be acceptable for the first game of the year, but after that all game threads should start shortly before the game starts.

I will say that I'm a tad surprised the nobody has started a look-a-like or prediction thread as of yet...

hint, hint...
