World Series Deja Vu

World Series Deja Vu

Yogi had a saying
For times just like these
When he was playing:
"It's like deja vu all over again."
There are other sayings
That may apply, too,
That Yogi might have uttered,
Once or twice, or not.

What goes around comes around,
Or, history repeats itself.

Most certainly, those phrases,
Wouldn't have made the bigs
Bartlett's, the quote hall of fame.
Nevertheless, parallels
Between seasons 01 and 23
With the Diamondbacks in the Series,
Certainly create that been there feeling.

Johsnon and Gallen hit
Not batters, but birds,
All the stars were out in Seattle,
All the game dates all aligned,
George W threw the first pitches.
So tune in for the Series in 45–
If Yogi were here, he'd say it better,
With a Berraism like this:
"The future ain't what it used to be."

The Arizona Diamondbacks and the Texas Rangers faced each other in the World Series in 2001 and 2023, and there were some remarkable similarities in those two years.
