An Ode To Brooks Conrad (or really bad poetry)

Here’s an ode to Brooks Conrad
Who was last night very bad
Three errors he had in the field
A loss to the Giants was sealed;

But Brooks Conrad shouldn’t despair too much
For in the season he was very clutch
He hit walk off grand slams
Making the baseball go BAM!

By the way, Atlanta’s not done yet,
hero status Conrad could still get
I mean, if in game two Glaus was late
he’d be skwered for not going to home plate

So all Conrad has to do tonight is win
Then the Braves still remain in,
With the series tied two games each,
The LCS would thus be in reach,
And in Game Five anything goes,
the highest highs, and lowest lows.

(With apologies to iambic whatchamacallit, and Shakespeare.)

    In an article on, Rob Neyer suggests that with a lead in the ninth inning, Bobby Cox should’ve put in light-hitting Diory Hernandez as a defensive replacement for the sweet-swinging, poor-fielding Conrad. Being a Red Sox fan, said article reminded me of John McNamara’s failure to replace Bill Buckner with Dave Stapleton in the tenth back in ’86.

    Also, I’m surprised there was no wrap-up on Game 5. For one thing, the road team won all five games. For another, it was the first time since 1981 that a team won Game 5 after losing Games 3 and 4.
