Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

I met a fan of an antique dynasty
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in at shortstop. Near them, on the infield dirt,
Half prostrate, a diving infielder lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of injury,
Tell that its manager well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The glove that mocked them, and the heart that tried;
And in Monument Park these words appear:
"My name is Derek Jeter, captain of captains:
Look on my ankle, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, legless and bare
The lone and level Wild Card stretched far away.
