Enough with the goddamned haikus already

After reading the umpeteenth season preview done as a series of haikus, we just have to say: enough already.

Joe Posnanski's AL East predictions done as haikus are cloying and dull enough, but his prediction that the Jays will finish behind the Rays just demonstrates how little thought he actually put into them. Writing a team preview as a 5-7-5 isn't a sign that you're clever. It's a sign that you've got sweet FA to actually say about the teams.

Seriously people. Just stop.

Ideas is only one syllable?

I hope you are right about the lowly Rays remaining lowly. They actually have a pretty nice team developing down there.

The Haiku has nothing on the Limerick though.

would people quit it with the rays finishing ahead of the jays. how? and if they can take on the jays, why not the sox and yankees, while they are at it?
