    Ok, it’s mid-December and no one is wearing a coat outside the bucket? I thought maybe it was inside, but there are stars in P1 and what is obviously the outside sign. Hey, is that sign new?

    That’s exactly what I was thinking. You don’t have to run up the middle to play smashmouth.

    Ernie didn’t encounter many inferior teams, given that the Cubs stunk during most of his career.

    The artwork in P2 is worse than usual. If you didn’t know which strip this was, you wouldn’t know it was Gil. It seems that the quality of the drawing is inversely proportional to the number of characters in a panel.

    There’s no such thing as too many Hoos. Also, I get that Rubin is going for alliteration, but who says “pals” in real life?

    Actually, the Larks are wearing red jerseys with black letters and numbers, white pants with black stripes, and red helmets with black letters and stripes. Check out the color version of the strip: http://www.seattlepi.com/comics-and-games/fun/Gil_Thorp/

    Say it ain’t so, Mop Man. I’m actually jealous of how funny you are.

    If you look at the color version of the strip, the “bald spot” is actually blue — sort of like Superman’s hair was always blue and black.

    Don’t blame the sparse crowd on Milford. This is the second of two games on the road to open the season.

    That’s Steve Boone, the one-armed man that the Fugitive was chasing.
