Haikuarrhea: Week 19 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 were swept by the Orioles in a short 2 game set at Petco Park and then traveled to Cincinnati where they dropped 2 out of 3 to the Reds. During the 19th week there existed some fine pitching and what could only be described as an abomination in regards to hitting.

Yay. Let’s haiku.

Vocal Minority (Nate)

no clutch hitting plus

one crappy pitch in the eighth

unlucky Ian

Ghost of Ray Kroc

Cabrera is gone.

Quentin is on the DL.

Padres can not score.

Left Coast Bias

Pitching much better

But can’t hit when it matters

Road woes continue

Avenging Jack Murphy

I dig Kennedy

And Ross. The Padres still lose.

Hmm. This is good right!?!!

RJ’s Fro (Rick)

Team is pitching well

But still can’t hit worth a lick

Feels like déjà vu

Padres Trail

Two off days last week

Not what team really needed

Bevacqua is funny
