Haiku-arrhea: Week 8 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.

After dropping series to both the Cardinals at home (1-2) and the Diamondbacks on the road (1-2), the Padres finished the week 2-4. Despite the losing record, they only dropped 1 game in the standings from the previous week and sit 5.5 games back of the 1st place Giants and Diamondbacks.

Now it’s time for Padres Public’s favorite activity to do while sitting on the toilet. IT’S TIME FOR HAIKU!
