Haikuarrhea: Week 20 in Padres Baseball

In an effort to stay close to our roots, the staff at Padres Public, will offer-up a haiku each Monday (sorry – I’m late) 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.

In a week that saw the Padres win 3 and lose 5 most of the attention centered around Will Venable who was named the N.L. player of the week. Not surprisingly, most of the haiku submissions this week centered around the hot hitting RF/CF who turns 31 in October.
