Haiku-arrhea: The All Star Break of Sadness Edition (Week 15)

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 . . .

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.
