    When Joe DiMaggio was in a slump.

    What Yankee player wrote this poem to him?

    To Joe DiMaggio

    Roses are Red
    Violets are blue
    Ted Williams can hit
    Why cant you?

    Wow....I wonder how that went over with Joe? I can only imagine!

    It would be a total guess for me...trying to think...someone big who wouldn't get mashed by Joe (Keller?)...a fellow Italian who might get away with it (Rizzuto?)...a pitcher who wanted more runs (Ruffing?) or somewhat of a flake like Snuffy Sternweiss(?)
