Phillies Journal - 2008
by Max Blue

Joe Blanton unlimbered his swing,
the result was a very odd thing;
a homer to left
that left Tampa bereft
of a chance to hear winning bells ring.

Ryan Howard unlimbered his swing,
the result was the usual thing;
not one, but two long balls,
plus two excited Harry Kalas calls,
and a big Phillies win, ring a ding ding!
