    I am hoping someday they find the lost written sources of baseball's unwritten rules.

    I'd take what is cheapest. It probably all tastes the same.

    Dick suggested that if Perkins were unavailable today, Duensing may take over.

    If that happens, I'm going to need to find a brick wall to hit my head against.

The poem is, in effect, a recipe for brewing beer. A translation from the University of Oxford describes combining bread, a source for yeast, with malted and soaked grains and keeping the liquid in a fermentation vessel until finally filtering it into a collecting vessel.

    Seems fitting.
    Lots of good advice and tips on those old tablets. Among them: "tis unwise, nay, worse, to layeth down a sacrifice following a leadoff double."
