Maybe Wellington batters could make contact with Ryan Van Auken’s stuff if they weren’t using cricket bats. Maybe CB Bucknor has found an umpiring job closer to his level and called that a foul tip. Maybe Wellington’s first base coach (if they have one) shouldn’t let his baserunners get such a huge lead trailing by three runs. Maybe Wellington shouldn’t channel the early 1980s Phillies by wearing powder blues at home. Maybe I should go back to using the black & white version of this strip for my posts.
In any event, much less drama than we were expecting out of the new kid who, from this angle, is looking an awful lot like the old new kid. Guess we’ll have to wait a bit for his first meltdown. Maybe on the bus ride back to Milford?
