This Week in Milford

You’re Out of Order, Bader!


The Mets got busted for batting out of order yesterday and the Twittersphere had fun with it.

What’s Gil’s excuse? His lineup card reads 1-2-x-x-6-7-8-9-10. Let’s zoom in on it:


Most of these guys are Milford’s usual suspects:

1. Mike Filion was the Mudlark’s undersized QB last fall

2. Barry Bader, well, you know him. Still showing zero signs of maturation

x. Andre Ruffin knows how to host a party

x. Pete DeWindt has been here since, like, forever

6. The same could be said for Paul Beaudry

7. Pelwecki has long worn out his welcome. His Rosie the Riveter pose pales in comparison to Lucky Haskins’ but he’s feeling it*

8. Jorge Padilla, like his MLB namesake, is an outfielder (or some new position, CH). We’ll find out if that skinny kid can jump and rob hitters of homers

9. We get the classic name Hiawatha James and it’s the only one Whigham can’t write out? Lazy!

10. Larry Arroyo was introduced to us as a non-Pelwecki sub for Barry Bader but now he’s a pitcher third baseman – that is, if he’s the same guy

May River has to be a long ride from Milford; maybe that’s why Gil’s lineup card is so wonky. Bluffton (home of May River High) has become known in recent years as an affordable alternative to nearby Beaufort and Charleston for Yankee retirees. Maybe Mr. Bakst or some other Milfordians have moved there and will form a home away from home crowd for the Mudlarks. Play ball!

*Note Pelwecki is written in at DH, but no pitcher is named; Arroyo, batting last, is at 3B (oops – teenchy)

Today’s strip introduces Larry Arroyo in a bowling shirt… nope, I don’t care.

Just when you thought it was safe to end this storyline

…its still going on with July baseball and stumblin bumblin fumblin Larry Arroyo comes in and helps slow down an already slow plot, and WE’RE ONLY IN THE 3RD INNING!!! Of a game that shoulda been played a month ago! Send him to the moon pronto, along with this storyline. At this rate the golf summer story will only be a week, not enough time for Gil to have his traditional lemonade on the porch. Me needs a song to help wrap up this endless plot. The Fabulous Thunderbirds will do the honors. Hope the 4th of July will find some Milford athletes on the top end of Roman candles, sending them far far away, never to be heard from again.
