An Adventure In Haiku

First mail at new place
You know it's some baseball cards
Yep, and they're from Sam

Oh, cool, check it out
Four Pads from the Update set
How's that for a start?

Million dollar arm
Thirty-seven cents of brain
That was a bit harsh

Seems like a nice dude
A heck of a pitcher too
You should follow him

Snapshot_20130114_4_medium
Oh, great, it's this guy
Our big offseason signing
At least to this point

Snapshot_20130114_3_medium
He didn't do much
Parts of two seasons then gone
Give this man a job

Seven other cards
I'll write haikus for those too
Here we go again

Playing baseball drunk
Smoking meth now and again
Yep, that's Mike Cameron

Snapshot_20130114_7_medium
Was good; glad he's gone
We got Alexi for him
That throwback's dope, though

Snapshot_20130114_8_medium
Who the fcuk is he?
You know the answer to that
Saved a fake no-no

Snapshot_20130114_9_medium
We got him for Kouz
Was traded for Cory Burns
Smooth like chocolate milk

Snapshot_20130114_10_medium
Studwick or Dudwick?
He was judged each time at bat
Left and blamed Petco

Snapshot_20130114_11_medium
America's cool
But that jersey looks like ass
Friggin' overkill

Snapshot_20130114_12_medium
Oh, shit, that card's gold
I have the regular one
Hey, it's numbered too

Dear Gaslamp Ballers
Thanks for reading this. Love, Joe
