Spring Training Haikus: Now spanning two decades (sort of)

February 10, 2020

strarting rotation
has some new faces and arms
allowing for depth

important question:
who is the centre fielder?
maybe teoscar?

many options at
the designated hitter
spot to consider

giles shall anchor
the bullpen, along with a
cast of characters

the young stars arrive
with higher expectations
and a stronger bond

Spring Training Haikus: The “Tradition” Continues

February 11, 2019

construction begins
at the spring training complex
where the earth is scorched

the new manager
leads a rebuilding roster
with future promise

fans want young Vladdy
to address his potential
and answer the hype

where does Travis fit
in a packed middle infield
with many options

pitching has questions
mixed with low expectations
and hopes for good health

Fragile Blue Jays
lost four matches to Oakland
in painful fashion.

Spring Training Haikus! A February tradition (at least in my head) since 2016

February 14, 2018

This could be the last
spring training for Donaldson
in fair Dunedin

The middle infield
is giving me great concern
due to its poor health

Pray for the finger
on Aaron Sanchez to be
blister free and safe

Joe Biagini
Should remain in the bullpen
where he’s suitable

Fifth starter auditions
shall take place in Dunedin.
Where’s Brett Anderson?

Summing up the 2017 Blue Jays with a haiku poem I wrote at 4am

October 1, 2017

Things did not go well
because there were plenty of
inconsistencies

The Center Fielder’s performance thus far

I really like this
new and augmented version
of Kevin Pillar

MVP at the WBC

March 26, 2017

It mattered the most
so Stroman answered the call
with flare and style
