Mark Teixeira, 2010

Bases loaded, do or die
Crowd gone wild, THUUUUH pitch -- and then…
Infield pop-up, routine fly.
Mark Teixeira… twenty-ten.

Bronx in bedlam, all about.
Yankees rallying again!
Aww, just missed it: long fly out.
Mark Teixeira… twenty-ten.

Yankiverse on bended knee
Praying for one hit: AMEN!
Caught the corner. Call strike three.
Mark Teixeira… twenty-ten.

I credit this ode for Tex's home run in yesterday's game. Please write poems chronicling Jeter's slump and A-Rod's declining power as soon as possible. Thank you.
