What The Hell Is Going On Here?

What the hell is going on here? Seriously. Somebody explain it to me.

We Need To Talk About Kevin?

Filed under: actual action, baseball, Gil Thorp, hideous scar faces — nedryerson @ 5:47 am


Kevin Pelwecki? What are the odds we will ever hear about Kevin Pelwecki again after his one panel cameo? How do the Mudlarks feel about Kevin? Even if he filled in nicely, could he have done more? Is anybody talking to Kevin on the bus ride of shame. Maybe that is Kevin with the kabuki makeup. We really need closure on all things Kevin!

But for now, let’s get back to Barry. Barry wandered into Gil’s office eventually and decided to put some words in Gil’s mouth because Gil can’t be bothered to do ANYTHING. There’s no coaching or counseling or discipline or mentoring or tough love. Gil doesn’t even want to open his eyes or even try his signature shaming. Barry’s going to have to shame himself.

Can You Believe This Crap Again?


“Hey, let’s heap physical and verbal abuse on the kid who had nothing to do with his father’s accident, then shun him, then repeat the entire cycle again and again, then act all pissy because the kid doesn’t want to be around us so we can repeat the cycle yet again.”


Oh well. At least it’s much better than “Cats.”

PS: Recycled art tag for True Standish’s hair on Art Standish’s head and (possibly) for Kaz’s big-ass 1998 Nokia 5110.

Gil Thorp Has Come Unstuck In Time


Barry may be going through a lot of heavy stuff these days but god help him if Gil has to forfeit and miss the playdowns because it is a law of nature that you can have two and only two players eligible to play second base.

“You Notice How True is the Only Player Gil Talks To?” “Yup.”


Today’s strip is an apparent homage to Andy Rooney and Gary Cooper.

Nice Jiffy Pop/Super Mario Bros. lids on the Mudlarks there. Equally nice: a cameo by Milk (or is it Cheese?) perched on Kaz’s shoulder. Trifecta of nice: the passive-aggressive, Hermey the Elf-like answer from True. Coming Monday: Pissy-faced Gil tells his golden mouthpiece to go make nice and play catch with Master Bader.

Did Emeril Sponsor Today’s Strip?

‘Cause we’ve gone from a BANG! to a BAM!

I’m not gonna play lawyer here and rehash any of the details of Del Bader’s first DUI or the accident that killed Boo Radley. I’ll just say that anything Ken Brown says or does to Barry Bader should go straight from Barry’s lips to Del’s stupid lawyer’s ears…

… that is, once Barry picks his lips up off the floor and gets them sewn back onto his face. It’s fixin’ to be on like Donkey Kong in the Milford locker room; it only remains to be seen who will step in and break up the melee: Gil (yeah, right), Kaz (even money) or (Specialiest Snowflake) True (possibly endangering his post-Milford sports career in the process).

Me, I’m pulling for Barry getting Hang ’em Hiatt recused from Del’s case, if only to add a new wrinkle to this slog.

Boo’s-eye View

Filed under: actual action, baseball, freak hands, Gil Thorp, Highlight reel — teenchy @ 4:51 am


Not much to say today beyond this crazy time dilation thing. I guess The Stability of Baseball is going to make a man out of Barry and help him lead Milford to third in the Valley just before Labor Day weekend.

Interesting choice of perspective in P2: is it that of the late Boo Radley? The entire panel is messed up, with the players, the umpire, the batter’s boxes and home plate all seemingly drawn to different scales.  Speaking of different scales, how about the Oakwood fielder with Zippy’s cap?

The Stability Of Baseball

Filed under: baseball, Boredom in Milford, Coach Kaz, Gil Thorp — timbuys @ 4:24 am


Stay focused on the important things in life, Kaz. Is Rubin purposely trying to make everyone in this arc aside from True appear to be an ass? Apparently so.
