DIRGE FOR THE PURGE: Phillies deal on deadline

In a year that surprised fortune tellers,
The 2012 Phils turned to sellers.
Both Victorino
and Pence had to go
at the deadline, those poor outfield fellers.

Shane Victorino, played center field,
with a legacy that had been sealed
when the feisty Hawaiian
sent some playoff sparks flyin’
in L.A., where the Phils’ mojo wheeled.

Now Victorino wears Dodger blue,
playing for the hot West Coast crew.
But the way he threw down
on the field and in town
drew Phillies’ fans’ love, through and through.

There once was a man, Hunter Pence,
who crushed balls well over the fence.
His play often looked silly,
and his stint as a Phillie
saw him shipped to join San Fran’s gents.
