In an effort to stay close to our roots, the staff at Padres Public, will offer-up a haiku each Monday to describe the previous week in Padres Baseball. Restricting our feelings to 3 lines and 17 syllables to describe a week of play is a massive undertaking, but (un) fortunately, we are more than up to the task.
The Padres only managed 2 victories on the home stand, both in games pitched by Eric Stults. The Padres lost close games and were smashed in others. They were no-hit once in a crowd that was largely pro-Lincecum. But at least there was yesterday. With a big 10-1 win against the Giants the Padres and their fans stagger into a much needed break.
Let’s share our feelings in a precise form . . .

@PadresPublic More angst, less stoic version: Damn you Giants "fans"! / Dammit, leave our park, will you! / Damn you all to hell!

Have a haiku? Go ahead and get it off your chest in the comments. Why haiku? Read this.
I contribute to Padres Public on Thursday mornings and when I’m feeling particularly inspired. I can also be found on twitter at @AvengingJM where I set my eyes on 2014, 7 days a week.
