Villanelle: Fantasy Choices I Have Made

Baseball player in dugout

As Villanelle Week continues, one more from me…

Fantasy Choices I Have Made

Fantasy choices I have made
I’ve drafted Travis Snider twice
In every league in which I’ve played

I got Reid Brignac in a trade
In which James Shields was the price*
Fantasy choices I have made

Kila Kaaihue made the grade
Greg Colbrunn sounded awfully nice
In too many years I’ve played

I drafted Manny, I’m afraid
In 2012, and for a price
So many choices I have made

A-Jax or Ellsbury, I have weighed
And dropped them both with bad advice
Before the years so great they played

Oh, Justin Duchscherer! I once prayed
He would come back. I rolled the dice
Fantasy choices I have made
I’ve mostly lost in leagues I’ve played

*Shields for Troy Glaus, Reid Brignac, and Ervin Santana. 2009.
