Dust off your Norton Anthologies, kids, and enjoy a sonnet for Reds manager Bryan Price:
by RJ Lesch
Here’s Bryan Price, his Reds down on their luck.
With injuries his players have been hit.
As manager, he sure would like to duck
His duties as a spokesman, and to sit
upon the news of who could play, and tuck
away the players who could not. But it
is not an option nowadays. No truck
is had with silence on such things. To wit,
reporters and their readers want to pluck
from every minute's stream the latest bit
of news. And if it hurts the team? Tough. Suck
it up. And Reds' opponents benefit.
I guess he thinks he'd had enough with schmucks.
And so Price vents, and Rosecrans "tsks" and clucks.
