This Week in Milford

July 27, 2018

What a long strange trip its been

Tieing up all the loose ends here on Feel Good Friday–

Panel One – How big is that mitt? Bigger then the players heads. Ryan must have gone to the Mens Big and Tall store for that. You catch a ball in that, it’ll be next week before you get it out. Jon Lester threw his glove one time because of that problem. Whatever it takes..

Panel Two– Nice of Gil to qualify Kevins season instead of just congratulating him and being done with it. Whats a great season when it takes 2 months longer then everyone elses?? This season made the Bataan Death March look like a drive through a car wash.  And the obligatory hands in the air for no reason – yippee, our seasons finally over and we can move on to summer on July Twenty Seventh!

And in Panel Three Kevin assesses his season. At a school as old as Milford, who there now gives a flying fuck about the guys there 30 years ago? Or even 10? High school records are about as big a deal to current players as an ant on their windshield. And Kevin makes a revealing statement –  -its his last season of Real baseball..? So next year he will play either Unreal Baseball, or .. wait for it.. football?  As long as its somewhere not affiliated with this strip.



  1. Hopefully this is the last we see of this douche and that dipshit Daphne but somehow I doubt it

  2. Dang! I was hoping that the last inning would feature a two-out pop fly near the pitcher’s mound… Ryan circles under it, ready to end the season on a note of triumph… when suddenly Barry plows into him full-speed. The ball drops to the ground, Ryan clutches his pitching shoulder in agony. Barry walks off the field, a pariah forever in his home town.

  3. That’s a glove in Ryan’s right hand? I thought it was an oven mitt as he readies for the big after season cookout. Is he a left handed hurler? I can’t remember.

  4. Kevin, you were a DH. That’s already not “real baseball”.

  5. Gang, y’all done good today. I laughed at all the comments, especially when you punctured the balloon in this semi-Hollywood-script. Yup, what happened to J. P. and all his buddies when they got older, otherwise known as “Angels in the Outfield: The Year They Hit Puberty”. They stopped watching the Angels and started playhing baseball themselves. Ranch Wilder could have been the announcer but theyalready have a jerk-off for a play-by-play guy in Marty Moon. And it’s a shame George Knox is not the manager. At least Knox used HIS angels well, unlike Coach Thorp.

  6. robmize, tha’s some funny stuff about the mitt. In all actuality, Joe Mudlark is borrowing Bumbles’ hand, y’know, the Abominable Snowman wannabe that pal’d around with Yukon Cornelius(eventually after falling 20,000 feet to their deaths) in “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer”? Bumbles wants it back at the end of the season in time to put the star on the Christmas tree. I was beginng to worry that we’d see Moose trash-talkin’ his game on Chanukah but I’m confident Bumbles will have his claw back in plenty of time to perform the ceremony. Could you imagine the Rudolph plotline overlapping into March, say on St. Patrick’s Day?
