    Looks like a good stretch by Fowler, but maybe Monday they’ll rule he took his foot off the bag and Foley will go ballistic on him.

    A wampus cat seems to be a mythical, cougar-like creature, according to wikipedia. A few high school teams around the country have that nickname.

    In that first panel, Marty appears to have traded in his flask for a baby bottle. That one resembles the Playtex Nurser, which Marty probably uses so he doesn’t suck in too much air and end up with gas.

    Empty sippy cup, slitted eyes (Probably fron Spring allergies), crows feet, Just For Men Hair & Beard. Moonpie is having himself a fine afternoon. Hey Chip, guarantee you Marty has gas from that bean burrito platter he ate for a pregame meal at Taco Bell.

    Jarbo does have quite the stretch. If he had angled it correctly, he might have just been able to catch the ball himself by leaning into P2.

    The first baseman is stretching with the wrong foot.

    Here in New Hampshire, we have a baseball team in the Eastern League (Class AA) called the Fisher Cats.
