This Week in Milford

Marty Wakes Up Just In Time For…Wait For It…

Well, look who woke up from a long winter’s (and spring) nap! It’s our old pal Marty Moon, the king of all Milford media (except, not anymore, or ever for that matter). Marty’s gotta get some sound for his “show” and he hasn’t been roasted by Gil in a good while. He picked a great day for a roasting. Gil’s gotta be cranky sitting in his office this late into June, plus he’s all warmed up from tearing into parents, umps and other media personalities like Al Drake from Channel 6.

Marty goes into his wind-up, lobs in his little dig and…..uh, well, Gil kinda half-asses it. Oh well, he’s tired. Marty’s tired (that crate is no place for a long winter’s nap). We’re all tired. If we had more time, Gil and Marty could do some improv games and workshop their little two hander, but we simply must move on.

Speaking of moving on, three games?? Are you kidding me? Well, we know we’ll only see Gregg’s next start since those are the only ones that count this season. Cut to…the camera man from Channel 6 getting some great footage of Gregg dislocating his elbow. Or maybe Gregg is reaching back into a wormhole in the multiverse to shove a tiny baseball into Gil’s ear. Yep, that’s absurd, no two ways about that!

Meanwhile, Scooter’s a little hurt that he’s not getting some pub. I thought he wanted to set a record or host Jeopardy or something. I guess his dreams had to get jettisoned like everybody else’s to make room for Hamm.

Say, did that cameraman have to lug that beast all the way to Madison for this? Wait, Madison? Is it…could it be…Madison Time??


  1. Marty’s been deneutered long enough. This is still pretty lame.
    Here’s hoping( I’m holding up a fake Long Island Ice Tea)this is over by Saturday. I want to see Gil on the golf course Monday. Wishing us a Happy July 4th. But not a safe one. You see, he hit the rotgut hard and had a fireworks accident. He now resembles “ 3 Finger “Mordecai Brown. What a turd!

  2. So Martinez Luna wasn’t spending the whole season drying out at some rehab after all, was he??

    It’s odd how he’s had nothing to say about Grrgg’s wild-ass fastball in all the games he’s been announcing…

    Everybody wants to praise Gilberto and Kazuo and Grrgg on their “inspirational courage” and give them medals and not a single parent, player or coach is going to have the stones to stand up and say: “WHAT THE HELL ARE THESE ASSCLOWNS THINKING AND HOW IS THIS LEGAL?!”

    And FWIW there is nothing “inspirational” about a dude falsifying his medical exams and weaving an outrageous web of lies and deceit just so he can fool everyone (including himself) to squeeze in one last season of varsity baseball… Real inspiration would have come from Grrgg accepting his new reality and helping spread the word of modified vision-impaired baseball instead…

  3. Need to win two out of three to be conference champs, eh? How many times have we seen this before? They’ll split the first two, then lose game three in an absurd fluke heartbreaker, that somehow ends up becoming a positive life lesson for all. Then a stab at a wisecrack, just in time for lemonade on the porch!

  4. That “ video guy” must be the guy bangin Heather since they’ve obviously been using the same 1980’s camera. And everyone has been sayin that Gil is a con man but the biggest con man that this strip has seen in years is none other than blind baby himself, Gregg. Now that Gregg is getting some ink (and vid), watch him fall flat on his padded face.

  5. And how about that…. Gil is actually giving Marty a straight answer without being a smart-ass douche bag prick

  6. So Milford obviously loses 2 of 3 to secure second place, with Gergg pitching a shit game with all the media pressure he’s feeling. Way to go, Gil! You encouraged this crap. On the other hand, if Milford actually wins 2 games, then we our not heading to Milford CC next Monday as we’ll have the playoffs to look forward to. But I don’t see playoffs coming with this story. Hopefully.

  7. We’re about to see a ’64 Phillies level choke. For all his talk about kids handling pressure, they don’t – and he never does anything to help them handle it. No, I don’t count this pep talk as helping.
