This Week in Milford

Worlds Biggest Rag

Filed under: baseball, Coach Kaz, general nonsense, Gil Thorp, Where is Milford? — robmize2013 @ 10:06 pm

We finally get the long awaited interview with Gregg (of course in uniform and not sitting at a coffeehouse relaxing.) Heather even talks to the catcher with his full equipment on. Hey isnt it summer yet? Today should be day 4. The planets are all in allignment for the next few days and we still are stuck with this dreadful storyline that like the Rolling Stones refuses to just go away.

Everyone else has checked out for 3 months and the Larks are still hanging on to Greggs final days as a pitcher, before he starts the rest of his life as a semi-blind man. At what cost is all this? Love how the supporting player justifies the scam theyre pulling on the rest of the league. Hey, let them figure it out while we live with this distraction that didnt need to be at all if the coaches had any sense. The other characters on the team have barely been developed while we drag out the inevitable runner-up finish for Milford and Greggs retirement from a game he had no business playing for at least 2 years. The fathers issues are still murky in relation to Greggs eyesight. Who cares how that turns out. If Mom files for divorce tomorrow she’ll be a better woman. Take your son to the best eye surgeon you can afford and pray its not too late. If the doc says — “What the hell was this kid doing pitching in high school?” , well, as one of my favorite sayings goes– all bad habits you have will rear their ugly head at some point. And for 3 months of baseball, your son wont be able to see for 50 years.

P3– accurate to a T. I think Kaz may be referring to the connection to his dad again, since Pops is trying to keep some secret. Also shows how putrid a town Milford is, since part of any newspapers goal is to reach as many people as possible. And they all have online editions these days so some jamoke from Africa can read it if he has a decent broadband connection. Kaz forgot about that.



    2. Oh and I do hope that quack optometrist is also interviewed so she explain to the world how her legally blind patient repeatedly fooled her into thinking he had 20/20 vision by somehow faking eye tests…

    2a. I also hope Gilberto and Kazuo were interviewed so they can explain how neither of them noticed that their ace pitcher is fucking blind for 75 percent of the season…

    2b. And of course I hope Grrgg explained how he’s blind but can still paint the strikezone or bean the on-deck batter on demand…

    3. So this has to be it, right? Surely the state high school athletics association will see this article and declare Grrgg ineligible, right?? After all, he never would have made the team if he told Gilberto on day one that he was fucking blind, right??

  2. Yeah, and P 1: “…. It was easy Mrs burns…. These two coaches and my optometrist are soooooo fuckin lazy, that it was really no problem pulling this off…and if an opponent figured it out by bunting on us, we just threatened them with violence or we would have coach Gil go yell at the ump…”

  3. […] Thorp accommodates no one from the media. Well, no one except Heather Burns. Her, he’ll let roam onto the field to interview his players. Mimi seems incredibly chill with this arrangement – so chill she […]
