In an effort to stay close to our roots, the staff at Padres Public, will offer-up a haiku each Monday 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 picked up Ian Kennedy along with series victories against the Reds and Yankees – not bad at all. Everth Cabrera should receive his 50 game season ending suspension today. Alright then.
Let’s haiku . . .

Cabrera was banned for 50 games Monday for his relationship to Biogenesis of America, a closed anti-aging clinic in Florida accused of distributing banned performing-enhancing drugs.
While disappointed, Byrnes...
When yesterday’s game against the Orioles began the Padres had a very nice, clean, and even 50 games remaining on their schedule. Such symmetry, coupled with the simultaneous loss of shortstop and lead-off man Everth Cabrera, prompted me to ask the following question:
There are 50 games left in the @Padres' season. I say 18-32. What say you?
