HILLARY BALL 
     Hillary, at bat, with her personal Blackberry,
Or switch hitting, for convenience, with an IPad or IPhone,
     Striking out while swinging away at a "handful" of "typical" private e-mails,
Trying her "easiest" to steal her way "home."
 
     But throwing a variety of pitches, Republicans,
Enough GOP hopefuls possibly running for Captain to more than field a team,
     Cleared her dugout of all but drama, not necessarily a plus for her party pennant race, skipping practice...
...Down the stretch could actually make it harder for Hillary to achieve her White House dream.
 
     And then there's the injuries, part and parcel of hardball,
The self inflicted wounds can take a toll...and may...
     ...Accumulate...become career ending...Democrats have no other power hitters to call up,
Putting them in the cellar long before Opening Day.
 
     How many times have baseball owners paid a huge salary,
Just to see "inevitable" expectations for the post season dashed,
     Beware donors to the Clinton Foundation, those who forked over inordinate speaking fees,
"Hidden" quid pro quo eggs put all in one basket can easily be hunted and bashed.
 
     As we prepare for the 2016 Fall Classic, minor and major leaguers in Spring training,
All eyes in camp on the ERA of a sunglasses shaded superstar with great "control,"
     But unless Hillary starts slugging solo home runs, she'll be called "out" stumbling over the Benghazi bags by the Uranium umpire,
 Slick Willie's fans' nostalgia for his championship seasons can only get her so far toward her goal.
