This Week in Milford

Brutal Spring

Filed under: Coach Kaz, Gil Thorp — nedryerson @ 4:06 am


Okay, so we’re doing this now? Any other incidents out on the highway? Did a woman in New Thayer choke on a Vienna sausage? Did patch of ice reveal its motivation?

Okay, Bobby Ottewill and Dinny Perez, eh? Didn’t they give birth to a chimp child last year? One could look it up, but living through it once was bad enough. Given the rapid fire delivery lately, let’s hope the roulette wheel of plotting will keep spinning past these two and land on something else. Anything, really…maybe not so much with the animals.

Alright Gil and Kaz, it’s time for sizing up the talent and strategically placing the kids in the positions that they can grow into. Analyze not only their strengths, but their needs. Give each kid the chance to succeed and to learn.

“Heh! Heh! Big Bob Stuff smacked Dinny down hard, son!”
“Yeah, Perez pretty much sucks. What else we got?”



  1. If the upper right hand corner of panel 1 is to be believed, Gil has Captain Marvel on his team. I think the ‘Larks can survive a weak shortstop, provided “SHAZAM!” isn’t shouted during games…

  2. Kaz is wearing the biggest watchband I’ve ever seen. And — ergh– what in hell happened to his hand? Did he try to unclog the garbage disposal while it was running?

  3. “… loosened things up.” So does an enema, but I don’t see a point to this clever badinage.

  4. It’s scintillating action like this that makes me wonder what’s happening over on the softball side of things.

  5. OK, what do we know?

    There appear to be some psychological factors involved in team selection– anxiety, etc– and Bobby Ottewill is credited with letting some of the air out. But what’s the problem? Is Dinty Moore looking that bad at 6? Is the fat guy who wiped out at the Quickie Fill (“Eat! Get Gas!”) involved? Has Mrs Raptor returned to Milford to give all left-side infielders hives? We must admit that Whigrub’s carefully engineered story arc is slow to reveal itself.

  6. A month without posts, now up at 4:06 AM doing this? Bravo. I want that pill you’re taking.
