Poor Start to Season/The Rays Are Right Back in It/How Did This Happen?

The Rays have completed their first month of action. I present to you some of the Rays’ notable Aprils. Written in haiku. Alphabetized by last name. Ready? Here we go.

Johnny Damon
16 game hit streak
Broken finger, out three games
Just hit a foul

Kyle Farnsworth
Still has that fastball
No “incidents” as of yet
The Rays new closer?

Sam Fuld
No power, no Ks
Diving catches, Wall magnet
Legend of Sam Fuld

Jeremy Hellickson
Mature and composed
The rookie’s looking solid
Needs to limit walks

Evan Longoria
Out entire month
He will be back very soon
Makes Rays much better

Jake McGee
Mostly mop-up work
Poor results, sent to Durham
Still future closer

Jeff Niemann
Has had a rough start
Needs to keep his pitches down
Hope he improves soon

David Price
The ace of the staff
Needs to strike out more batters
He will be just fine

Manny Ramirez
Only played five games
Positive drug test, gave up
MannyBManny

James Shields
Has changed his approach
Racking up swings and misses
Now “Complete Game James”

Ben Zobrist
Not his finest month
Had one ridiculous day
Zorilla’s return?
