Haikuarrhea: Week 23 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 had a weird week. They were swept by the Dodgers but had two losses by scores of 2-1. Then they took the series against the Giants two games to one and followed it up with a sweep of the Rockies. Weird, wild, stuff.

So weird, we wrote some haikus about it. Like to hear ’em? Hear they go.

Giants series won.

Also, Rockies series sweep.

Too bad both teams suck.

Sweeping Giants Rockies always fun

Beerfest more funner

I look to the sky

And sigh. I. Ask. Why? Oh. Why!
