Pay Ball!

April 09, 2006|James Flanigan

Baseball is upon us, teams have started play

Vying less for pennants than the allegiance of L.A.,

Far more than Angel Red vs. Dodger Blue,

The game's for Dollar Green, a much more serious hue

Anaheim's Moreno wants northward to expand

Because he sees a prize in attracting L.A.'s fans

He knows to his chagrin the team value score

Dodgers worth $424 million, Angels $294

Meantime the McCourts, their Boston land now gone,

With freshly painted ballpark, are determined to hang on

Their new-look team, fans hope, will help them toward their dream

If not, some fear, we could see condos atop Chavez Ravine.
