Haiku-arrhea: Week 9 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 finished the week 4-3, splitting 4 games with the Mariners and then winning a 3 game series with the Toronto Blue Jays. San Diego is slowly creeping towards .500 at 26-30, a full 6 games behind the Arizona Diamondbacks who occupy first place in the NL West. The Padres meet the Dodgers (currently 2.5 games behind SD) in Los Angeles tonight for a 3 game series with last place on the line. Do the Dodgers think their own team is dead in the water? If so, is now the time to retaliate against Carlos Quentin? Are you tired of being asked questions?

Perfect! Let’s haiku . . .

The more it annoys

The funnier it becomes

That’s the Vedder Cup

Bad time to start drinking game

Nice knowing you all

Bar hopped Friday night

Got home at 3, just in time

Walk off! Poor Kelly.

Ghost of Ray Kroc

Dick Enberg came back

Vedder Cup was run aground

Wait until next year.

Weird baseball Friday

Past midnight against the Jays

Ate a Popsicle

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 write derogatory things about the playing time Will Venable receives, 7 days a week.
