  • Screwball is good, as is the curve,

    So too the slider, even the slurve

    But not silly "scroogie."

    It sounds fake and kludgy,

    A childish word that will not serve.

    The Olde Game is graceful and poetic

    As imbued with art as it is athletic.

    A "scroogie," indeed!

    It makes the ears bleed

    And besmirches the baseball aesthetic.
