Haiku-arrhea: Week 3 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 entered week 3 of the 2013 season with a record of 2-10. They had just been swept during a weekend series against the Rockies and Carlos Quentin was beginning his suspension as the Padres prepared to roll-on-up to Los Angeles. This team had no business winning a game against the high priced Dodgers. So, naturally, the Padres swept ’em using good pitching and what appeared to be legitimate hitting. As the Padres traveled up the coast for a three game set against the Giants over the weekend, the hopes of all fans were on the rise (hyperbole?). So, naturally, the Giants swept the Padres limiting them to 0 runs over the final 21 innings of the series. The Padres are now 5-13 with the Milwaukee Brewers coming to town.

This season’s going to be weird. Let’s haiku . . .
