Well this isnt going quite the way I thought it would– the Mayors team is getting overrun by a Milford club without one of its better players.  I had ideas about a fairly close game where the inferior team pulls off the upset after hanging around and building up the pressure on the more talented side, which finally cracks making a crucial error allowing the winning run to pull off the upset.

Nope. When you dont have pitching and defense, you got nothin.  Even with a sexy backstop with 2 first names.

Its not only an embarrassing rout, its now a farce, as one of Milfords players is taking over on the mound for the Mayor (or so I figure) .

So basically the Larks are ending the competitive portion of the game. Its now just a glorified scrimmage, since no matter what happens from this point, its not Team A vs Team B anymore. So be it. The Mayors team was thrown together in 2 weeks. Milford is a real team who just played a high school varsity season. The worst team they played all season was better then this outfit. Who didnt see this coming?

The Mayor going to center field –  The Ultimate Walk Of Shame.



  1. I don’t see in reality where a shy sophomore like our buddy Z takes charge in a situation like this. And it’s only 8-0. I say only because it’s not 10 run rule yet. And if WB has any balls he’d tell him to get his candy ass back in the Mudlark dugout. We’ll take our beating like a man or maybe we’ll comeback and beat your charity loving ass.

  2. Rob, this is getting absurd. An umpire with a referee shirt on?????? Does he blow his whistle when he’s calling strikes??? God knows what his safe call mechanics look like. “Count the basket”????

  3. I’m guessing the CF is the kid that couldn’t catch a simple fly ball in practice

  5. 1. I liked the part when Peppermint Patty didn’t even have the correct glove behind the dish… Your “ringer”, ladies and gentlemen…

    2. Is that umpire wearing a goddamned zebra shirt? They hire him off a basketball court?

    3. At least now I know why the mayor didn’t wager anything… Try to dig up some better ringers next time, kid and remember all great teams are built through the middle, i.e., C-P-SS-2B-CF

  6. I liked your comment about jeans the other day Hitorque. I had a rule about playing teams in jeans while playing softball or volleyball. Rule 1 says no effin way we lose to teams that has one or more players playing in jeans. I haven’t kept track for the 35 plus years that rule went into effect but I’d like to think we’re undefeated.
