At a time like this/when everything looks hopeless/…

…it’s time for haiku.

Because we’re not tackling the weighty issues of the day, I don’t feel like I’m doing a disservice by not taking apart the weekend.  If you want the rapid rewind version, it’s something like: Bad umpiring… Swarzak melts down… more bad umpiring… Can Pavano pitch every day? … Baker?… Cuddyer!… Look at Delmon go DEEP! …  Gardy calls out Harris … Guerrier loses lead on doinks … Twins 5 1/2 games back with 51 games to play.

But, instead, let’s try to wrap our feelings into 17 syllables in the traditional 5/7/5 format.

I know things are bad
But if we show discipline
Maybe it will rub off

Hunter Wendelstedt
Second-generation ump
Daddy must be proud

Pavano pitches
Everything’s right for a day
Then Baker falls short

Cuddy and Delmon
Go deep and even deeper
Announcers wet pants

Cabrera gets hits
But his range playing shortstop
Creates a trade-off

Guarding the lines late
That’s a baseball axiom
Don’t need to be told

Kansas City, Cleveland
Are the next two opponents
Six-and-oh seems right

I could do more, but it’s your turn…
