In honor of the bare-knuckle fightin’ spirit of Cubs catcher Michael Barrett, I whipped up the saga below and posted it to Bardball today. If you haven’t checked out Bardball yet, click on that blue box on the right and get with it, baby!
BATTLIN” MIKE BARRETT
This is the saga of Battlin’ Mike Barrett,
A tiger of a man with fists of ore.
He’d raise his dukes and take on all comers,
Regardless the color of jersey they wore.
His mighty hands landed many a blow.
He never backed down from a brawl.
But such hardened paws don’t do you much good
When your job’s to be fielding the ball.
