2015 National League preview in haiku

Post Author:

We’ve poetically looked into the American League, now it’s time to put the National League under the microscope of the haiku preview. In 2014, the San Francisco Giants once again surprised the baseball world, riding the cow-toting arm of Madison Bumgarner to a thrilling seven-game World Series win over the upstart Kansas City Royals.

So what does the haiku have in store for the Senior Circuit in 2015?

NL East



Philadelphia Phillies

Always sunny in

Ryan Howard’s wallet and

Cole Hamels’ mullet
