Haiku-arrhea: Week 14 in Padres Baseball

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 have lost 9 in-a-row? They’re in last place again? Chase Headley is third on the team among qualified hitters with a .229 average? Is that right?

There are more questions than answers right now. Let’s share poetry . . .

The Sacrifice Bunt (Melvin)

Padres are sellers

This feels a lot more normal

Get us something good

RJ’s Fro (Rick)


The Padres have been awful

Its Pad-arrhea!

Avenging Jack Murphy

Weary of the road

Fleeing cherry blossoms now

The Mission crumbles

Ghost of Ray Kroc

Losing streak at nine.

I say, go for the record.

14 games or bust!

Vocal Minority (Nate)

Padres were buyers

Now they are cellar dwellers

What a lousy week

Left Coast Bias

9 Ls in a row

Always darkest before dawn?

Faith being tested

Vocal Minority (David)

Grandal injury

As if it couldn’t get worse

San Diego Sports



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.
