Has Anyone Else Been Wondering How Barry’s Doing? Nah, Didn’t Think So.


Running with the color version today so we can revisit the Indians’ Mudlarks’ bloodclot unis and verify Jay Bhatia’s skin tone.  I guess they did an okay job of it; at least he doesn’t look like Peter Sellers in The Party.  His glove is the same color as the rest of the uniforms so that’s a minus.  Hard to tell from this angle whether he’s still wearing the round glasses or if he’s switched over to goggles.  There’s a strap running around the back of his head so I’m gonna guess the latter, a Chris Sabo or Tyler Clippard look.  Too bad; yesterday I was getting a retro vibe from him, kind of a Dom DiMaggio meets Earl Torgeson meets Chick Hafey meets Clint Courtney thing.

Sorry about getting stuck in the minutiae but, yeah, Barry Bader’s back in a speaking role and as prickly as ever.  There were a lot of holes to fill from Jay’s convo with Dafne yesterday, in particular what it is about Jay that makes Dafne think they “see eye to eye.”  The directive must have been to pump Barry for info, and let’s just say Jay’s about as subtle as a blowtorch in doing so.  (Ya know, since it was Jorge Padilla who asked what Barry’s deal was, maybe he’d have been a good person to grill Barry instead. He could always pull the new guy card.) Good on Jay for directing Barry’s ire back on Dafne; that sets us up for a nice f-t-f confrontation next week which promises some exposition on life im Schloss Bader and a nice MYODB.



  1. I neither see nor smell the glove.

  2. So Rubin came up with this setup which implied that Dafne already knew something, and needed to flesh it out. Instead, we see a blind shot. Barely two weeks into the story and we’ve already lost traction.

  3. We continue to see that Master Bader is as unlikeable as Ty Cobb in his heyday. Only difference is he has no talent. What a douche.

  4. Geek should’ve asked Moose what launch angle he should use on an upper cut to Bader’s jaw.

  5. “Speaking not as a teammate, but as a reporter for the school paper, the staff has been wondering how you’re doing. No particular reason; we’re not doing a retrospective on how your drunk dad got the star softball pitcher killed or why you haven’t been pummeled by your teammates for being such an asshole. Just a bunch of reporters and editors just, y’know, wondering…”

  6. teenchy, I don’t know about you but if Paul Crewe were to start up a Mean Machine baseball team after MM kicked the prison guards’ butt in football, those P1 uniforms would have to be the garb of choice. The colors alone would blind the prison guard team’s pitcher. It’d be 9-0 in the 1st Inning before you know it. And if Crewe doesn’t pull another point-shaving stunt, it oughta be a cakewalk the rest of the way.

  7. In real life, Bader sez “What!!!! ….Dafne is asking about me so she can do what?….spread more shit about my dad through that jerk-off school paper?…fuck her!…I ain’t tellin’ her shit and neither will you if you know what’s good for you, captain douche…”

  8. […] part un: Jay Bhatia has been wearing #7 (while rocking the Tyler Clippard specs) and had black hair all season long. Today’s #7 doesn’t resemble him in the […]
