Rhyme for the Season: The YFSF Haiku Competition

SF’s "Predict-the-Matsuzaka-Contract-Terms" competition was kind of a bust—Jeez, none of you "experts" even came close; when yours truly was declared winner the masses here screamed FOUL! Fine. I can’t blame you. Ask me, it sounds like typical Sox-style malfeasance. Anyhow, I renounce my throne, and hereby offer a new, culturally appropriate competition to the greater YFSF community, which means anyone and everyone out there willing to enter. The brief:

Compose a haiku that includes either the name Daisuke Matsuzaka or Kei Igawa* and post it to the comments below no later than 11:59 PM, December 31, 2006. A distinguished panel of "celebrity" judges will choose two winners. The top YF and SF entrants get their choice of item from the YFSF store, and maybe a little something else. Multiple submissions welcome. The authors of this blog may contribute entries, but are not eligible for victory or the prizes.

*Due to the length of the name Daisuke Matsuzaka we will accept either the first or last name, or an abbreviation (eg, "Dice-K") in any entry. Same goes for Igawa, out of fairness. But special consideration will be given for use of the full name, and we’ll be even more impressed if you can get all four in there. And don’t forget Boras.

UPDATE: Due to the overwhelming response, we have moved the closing date of this competition up to 11:59 PST, Saturday, December 23, 2006. Please have all entries in by that time.—YF

    There once was a Japanese “pitcher,”

    Matsuzaka was his name,

  • i know that i was merely attempting to include both names in my haiku, andrew. others might be doing the same. i think most realize that the two guys have “different expectations,” to put it gently.

    Yankee Fan In Boston December 21, 2006, 11:01 am
  • This Yankee fan knows that chances of Igawa being as good as DMat are slim and none.
    But we know that going into the season. Expectations for DMat are sky high, while for Igawa it’s kind of like, oh well, whatever he can do to help.
    Anyway, at this point in time, it’s just to play along with the game.

    Whatever December 21, 2006, 11:10 am

  • Standard form for this competition is understood to be 5-7-5. Deviations from this form, or uses of other forms, will not be rejected outright, but will be held to an especially (ridiculously!) high standard. We strongly recommend sticking with standard form.

  • when yanks crush new sox
    herald headline will shout out:

    Yankee Fan In Boston December 22, 2006, 8:24 am
  • good thing for daisuke
    WEEI is
    not in japanese.

    Yankee Fan In Boston December 22, 2006, 8:29 am
  • crafty lefthander
    awaken crouching tiger
    hope kei can hack it

    Yankee Fan In Boston December 22, 2006, 8:32 am
  • okay
    Kei Igawasan
    v Daisuke Matsuzaka.
    The-e Yankees win!

    john December 22, 2006, 9:40 am
  • D-Mat or Doormat?
    Kei will always just being Kei
    Can’t wait – four more months!

    Lar December 22, 2006, 10:17 am
  • Kei will just be blah
    while Dice-K is pronounced “bettah!”
    Still, The Yanks win it all

    Nick-YF December 22, 2006, 10:29 am
  • how can the yanks beat
    the sox when they have daisuke?
    that’s just how they do.

    Yankee Fan In Boston December 22, 2006, 10:31 am
  • a curse, shifted south
    Stein apes Frazee, lowballs Dice
    chants of “2000”

    SF December 22, 2006, 10:38 am
  • instant ace status
    puts great weight upon shoulders.
    will daisuke crumble?

    Yankee Fan In Boston December 22, 2006, 10:41 am
  • when daisuke brings you
    twenty more rings, you can
    chant all that you’d like.

    Yankee Fan In Boston December 22, 2006, 10:46 am
  • ha, touche, YFiB!

    SF December 22, 2006, 10:48 am
  • (a cheap shot, but all in good fun.)

    Yankee Fan In Boston December 22, 2006, 10:49 am
  • Count teh rings bitchez!
    that’s right, count teh rings bitchez!
    count teh rings bitchez!
    (ok, it’s not You-Know-Who, it’s actually me, SF. I just couldn’t resist)

    You Know Who December 22, 2006, 10:58 am
  • tiger in new ‘stripes
    land of rising sun to bronx
    enter igawa

    Yankee Fan In Boston December 22, 2006, 11:04 am
  • i’m off to new york.
    loyalties aside, happy
    holidays to all.
    be safe and be well,
    even if you like the sox.
    and happy new year.

    Yankee Fan In Boston December 22, 2006, 11:21 am
  • More games, less rest and
    more dangerous hitters too.
    Daisuke may go poof!

    Whatever December 23, 2006, 12:18 pm
  • Dice-K’s tummy growls…
    too thick and milky! Chowdah
    isn’t miso-based.
    The dogs in the Bronx
    are tasty, but Kei is no
    Happy holidays, all!

    Spidey December 23, 2006, 12:59 pm
  • Confuscious once say:
    Daisuke’s body is young but
    his arm is quite old.

    Whatever December 23, 2006, 1:08 pm
  • Confuscious once say:
    Man who lay woman on ground
    will have peace on earth.
    Happy Holidays.

    Whatever December 23, 2006, 1:39 pm
  • Kei, Pettite, Dice K
    approach with the next spring as
    we dream of baseball.

    attackgerbil December 23, 2006, 5:26 pm
  • Andy Pettitte, please
    forgive me for my habit
    of losing your Ts.

    attackgerbil December 23, 2006, 5:28 pm
  • White ash fans the air
    Daisuke Matsuzaka
    Boston divine wind
    edited to correct form

    attackgerbil December 23, 2006, 5:45 pm
  • Whence Pettitte goes,
    Rocket follows, some say. Meh.
    In Houston, he stays.

    attackgerbil December 23, 2006, 5:49 pm
  • Who misses Zimmer?
    Gerbil does. Would Donny rush
    Pedro eagerly?

    attackgerbil December 23, 2006, 5:50 pm
  • Hate on the Red Sox?
    Yankees are richer for them.
    I don’t see the point.

    attackgerbil December 23, 2006, 5:52 pm
  • Dice-K’s money may
    hinge on endorsements. What if
    he hates white chowder?

    attackgerbil December 23, 2006, 6:03 pm
  • Edit to 5-7-5
    Daisuke stood wounded,
    clutching his arm. Warriors
    like these, I’ve not seen.
    The Red Dragon of
    high Nation expectations
    slays Matsuzaka.

    Whatever December 23, 2006, 6:37 pm
  • This looks fun (haven’t been on here in weeks, I apparently have perfect timing. :)
    Series MVP?
    One is certainly likely
    It’s Daisuke, not Kei
    Daisuke a hero
    Igawa on the DL
    Golf with Pavano?
    (The second one would be my fantasy for these two pitchers…)
