Haiku-arrhea: Week 4 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 began the week with consecutive losses against the Brewers at home and then went on to win 4 straight, including a series sweep over the Giants. As I understand it, the Giants won the World Series last year, which in the context of this season means nothing. It has also been explained to me that it was the Giants who won the World Series and not their fans. Crazy, I know.

The Padres are now 9-15. As they prepare for a 4 game series against the Chicago Cubs let’s share haiku about the week that was . . .

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 try to drop less f-bombs 7 days a week.

      • If he saves another game this week either on offense or defense, we may have to.
