Phillies Sweep Brewers

by Tom Martin (@brew_haiku)

Game 90. #Phillies 3 #Brewers 2
It’s a weird feeling
Losing more games than winning
Small shades of last year…

Game 91. #Phillies 7 #Brewers 5 (in 4th inning)
Overbay Grand Slam
Seems like a long time ago
Pitching is shaky.

Game 91. #Phillies 9 #Brewers 5 (in 5th inning)
Hey Gorzelanny
Good to see you in the game
Please, no more runs though!

Game 92. #Phillies 4 #Brewers 1
Let’s see, we have lost
4 straight and 8 out of 9
Time for slide to end.

Game 93. #Phillies 9 #Brewers 1
That sinking feeling
Both game and Division leads
Evaporated.

Haiku

by Bob Carlton

A game of pepper–
flattened grass keeps getting
back up



Elbow Haiku

by Stephen Jones

25 games in
17 pitchers so far
Tommy John season

 



American League West 2014 Spring Training Haiku

By Stuart Shea

ASTROS
An Appel a day
Would keep the losses away
But he’s not yet ripe.

ANGELS
Ask A. Moreno–
Trout fishing in Cali
Can be expensive.

ATHLETICS
Free and well-favored,
No-names and others’ castoffs
Find their own success.

MARINERS
East coast import
Finds rain not to his liking
Even under roof.

RANGERS
Wash likes sac bunting.
His fellow skippers are glad
To accept the out.

 



American League Central 2014 Spring Training Haiku

by Stuart Shea

WHITE SOX
Can the Sox play tough?
White indicates purity…
Are dirty suits allowed?

INDIANS
If only Swisher
Struck out more often…but then,
Truth ain’t poetry.

TIGERS
The old roar is gone…
No more sneaking cigarettes.
It’s a young man’s turn.

ROYALS
It is difficult
To keep from strangling youth with
High expectations.

TWINS
Mauer ain’t sour,
He’s heretofore banished from
Those bad Twins hurlers.
