Haikuarrhea: Week 22 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.

This last week was not without challenges for the Padres. They won only once and dropped three games by a margin of 1 run. Despite a couple of fantastic pitching performances the Dodgers still steam-rolled the Padres, sending them home to battle the Giants for last place.

Let’s haiku!

Four more weeks to go.

Get Byrnes over the hot stove.

Oh. Heh. Never mind.

Ghost of Ray Kroc

D-backs and Dodgers,

AKA all the douchebags.

1 damn win? Really?

Avenging Jack Murphy

Andrew Cashner’s Ks.

A rising tide of awesome.

Keep missing bats, pal.

Vocal Minority (Nate)

Moral victories

are all we have left this year?

Call up Dean Anna.
