Poll Time: Pick the winner in the 2018 Bluebird Banter Haiku Contest

New, 1 comment

I meant to put this up yesterday, but there was more than enough happening yesterday.

As you remember we had the thread to submit your Haiku on the Blue Jays 2018 season back here.

I’ll list the Haiku (apparently that’s the plural of the word) which received 7 or more recs and we can vote. I’ll admit that my favorite one didn’t get enough recs to get into our poll but I think this is brilliant:

Vlad Vlad Vlad Vlad Vlad

Vlad Vlad Vlad Vlad Vlad Vlad Vlad

Vlad Vlad Vlad Vlad Vlad

But sorry NelsonL, not many agreed.

Here are the Haiku looking for your vote:

1.

Kendrys Morales

Hard ground ball to the right side

In shift, Double Play

by Ben927

2.

A swing and a drive

Big strong athletic soft hands

He’s a ballplayer

by Blauv

3.

How bad was the year?

Russ played third more than Josh did.

And managed a game.

by NelsonL

4.

Gift has never had

His last name in a Haiku

’Til now. Ngoepe.

by NelsonL

5.

Berti to the show.

On Jumbotron with Gibby.

Big smile. Worth the wait

by MaRriS

6.

Swing and a high drive

Get up ball, get up ball and…

Caught by Mookie Betts

by Ben927

7.

I knew Pearce was good

but why must he prove it in

a Red Sox jersey

by ahnyda

8.

Down six in the ninth,

That night we partied.

So vote for your favorite by number.
