Haikuarrhea: Week 17 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 went 5 and 2 this week and things seem to be finally clicking with Chase Headley and Carlos Quentin at the plate. Tyson Ross was the star on the mound. The trade deadline is Wednesday. WHAT WILL HAPPEN!?!?

Tyson Ross Cy Young
Luke Gregerson go bye bye
Might have jumped the gun

The Sacrifice Bunt (Melvin)

Why’s Street off the block?
I prefer wins to “statements”
Look at Hoyer go!

Vocal Minority (Nate)

One nothing Padres
One zip US Gold Cup win
Pretty good Sunday

The Ghost of Ray Kroc

Where’s Quentin going?
It is called a no-trade clause.
How about nowhere?

Son of a Duck

Bar showed us pregame
Got me fired up for baseball
Then switched to soccer

Left Coast Bias

Best road trip of year
Three more days to make a trade
Headley has returned

Avenging Jack Murphy

Saw game 1 at Chase
A young Andy Hawkins am
I, says Mudcat Grant

Five and two? Not bad!
I said they have a run left
Tough week ahead though

Rick of RJ’s Fro spends most of his time here drinking beer and talking about bobbleheads. I Tweet. I book the Face. I even have plussed the Google once or twice.
