This Week in Milford

Zane the friendly ghost

Filed under: baseball, hideous scar faces, softball — robmize2013 @ 4:57 pm

Our new, old face is none other then Zane Clark, who is a pitcher, hasnt played in 3 years, and is bigger. Well shit. Show me someone who isnt bigger as a senior then he was as a freshman. I was 5’2″ and grew to 6 feet by senior year, putting on about 55 pounds. And I couldnt play baseball, save for a brief career in little league.

How the hell does Gil just put him on the team after not seeing him throw in 3 years?? Yeah he’s well rested, but dude– there’s something called TRYOUTS that you need to attend, whether youre Dizzy Dean or Dazzy Vance. Even has a damn uniform already. Freshman baseball is a world different from varsity as well. Im sure he loves those red unis — 99% of the world uses white or gray pants with a red top. Not Milford. And who wears their uniform to practice for the thousandth time?? Well– no numbers on these dreds so maybe thats the difference. I can see he has the same mitt he did 3 years ago– it barely fits his hand. My first practice in t-ball one of the kids came up, looked at my pint sized glove and said -“Here– want a bigger mitt?” So I can relate.

So if ol Zane gets lit up in Game 1, dont say I didnt warn you Gil!

Zane 2018 aint Zane 2021. Good thing he waited til 7 weeks before graduation to show up. Almost burned up his eligibility dicking around for 3 years. Put him in the bullpen until he shows he can come to practice every time, let alone walk in and grab a uniform.

Meanwhile we find out Katy Brito and Zane are seeing each other. Or were. Love the use of ‘ghost’ as its a fairly modern slang term for ghosting– not responding to messages or texts etc. Rubin certainly has been around the kids lately to be using that word. I guess the spring storyline will be about these 2 lovely folks. Methinks the Ghost is the one who turns out to be the weirdo of the two.

  1. So, douche #1 sez “…about time dude…” like he’s late for lunch or something. A real reaction from a regular player would more likely be “….what the fuck are you doin’ here? did you run out of weed and video games?…” Can Gil possibly have his head up his ass this far? This is already stupid af. I can’t wait to see where PP fits into all this. Maybe her and Doug need to look at this guy a little closer too.

  2. …and I think Rubin means “ghosting”, where one party ignores all attempts by another party to contact them such as DMs, texts, phone calls, social media, etc., hence the term “ghosting”, not “ghost”

  3. Nah, I think it just means nobody, including Katy ever sees him.

  4. Robmize, are you taking tomorrow’s post? It’s fine with me if you do but let me know one way or the other, Big Guy. Thanks, You da Man.

    Hey, Pat Benatar’s granddaughter made tryouts and they slapped a uniform on her 10 minutes after she was apprised the wonderful news.

    Jiffy Pop hair and chunky trees that emanate from the same base as the shrubbery. We should be off to a great season.

  5. Gents, thanks for covering for me today. I’m covering a lot of ground today, myself.

    Didn’t the Cleveland Indians wear all-red uniforms for a while in the 1970s? (I can still call them that, right? At least that’s what they were called when they wore the all-red unis.)

  6. Yes they did and yes you can teenchy. I have a dark blue Joe Charboneau jersey and a Chief Wahoo hat. In my research I found that Chief Wahoo is Chief Illinewek’s drunk cousin. What a swinging guy!

  7. All red stretch polyester & some of the Indians weren’t in great shape. This was in pre-tanking times, when the 60-102 record in 1971 was an Epic Fail.
