Haikuarrhea: Week 21 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.

The Padres won a series against the Cubs in laughable fashion (15 innings) and had a decent* week by their standards. Will Venable continued his hot streak and Edinson Volquez received his walking papers after failing to get out of the first inning in his last start.

* used very liberally.

Let’s explore the highs and lows using haiku.

Why go on living?
