  1. Happy Thursday everyone! All of the clue words solved rather easily this morning. My only hiccup came from VEDORU as it looked like OVERDUE at first. None of the solved words returned as being new, but three of the anagrams were. LIHEW is the only repeat for today.

    The setting for today’s cartoon appears to be a locker room where we see a few members of the Jumble baseball team celebrating a victory. Not everyone was participating in the revelry though. The dialogue of the panel, which was a bit wordier than ususal, informs us that there’s a new Gas Masterson in town, and the news is a shocking blow to the pride of the former ace. What he needs to remember is that he’s still part of the team, and even though he can only throw meatballs over the plate, they wouldn’t be where they are today without the cheese he pitched in prior seasons.

    There were plenty of details to enjoy within today’s panel. My favorite was the way Jumble was stylishly written on the players jerseys. I also noted 22 stitches on the baseball, a boombox on a shelf in one of the lockers and a small “J” on some of the caps. All good stuff!

    The final solve was an anagram consisting of 10-letters that would form one word. There were three vowels and seven consonants in the layout. As soon as I noticed the letters for OVER hanging out at the end of the scramble I knew what the answer would be. I found the solution to be clever and quite timely with the MLB season well underway. Have a terrific Thursday, and just keep MLJNGUBI!

  2. Good Morning, Everyone. I hope this finds you well…🙋🏻‍♀️

    ⚾️ What grapes are to a WINERY, strikeouts are to a win,
    And WHILE careers mean everything to players kith and kin…
    There’s always a guy coming up, his ORBIT on the rise,
    Your record to DEVOUR…it should come as no surprise
    Baseball does give us winners…but something we’ve always known…
    The hero stands high on the mound…until he’s OVERTHROWN…⚾️

  3. 🍷 His outlandish behavior WHILE at the WINERY was considered to be out of ORBIT, and after seeing him DEVOUR the entire complementary cheese platter, the committee took an emergency vote…and his membership was OVERTHROWN on the spot…🍷

    ❤️ He’d longed for her a long long WHILE, in ORBIT she’d him send,
    His feelings he’d DEVOUR though…his guard he wouldn’t bend…
    Till one day at the WINERY, his lovelorn cover blown,
    She asked him for his number…and it all was OVERTHROWN! ❤️

    • Awww, nice to see a happy ending! (Not so much for the guys eating or throwing all the cheese 😂)

      • LOL! Yeah, I like happy endings! And I just couldn’t see the guy STRIKING OUT…after SITTING ON THE BENCH for so long! 😉 But, there was no throwing of cheese…That first guy just DEVOURed it all…it was a CLEAN SWEEP! 😉⚾️🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. A Jumble baseball team! Their stats I’d Devour even While visiting a Winery or in Orbit around this old, blue marble. My previous favorite team, the Omaha Storm Chasers, has been Overthrown by Jumble fanaticism. Do you think Dave and Jeff will be selling jerseys? This being my last day of the work week, I will ponder that question until Sunday.

    • You have other Tee’s to think about over the weekend, OO. Enjoy the fresh air and green grass, my friend. Heck, maybe you’ll even spot a few eagles if you’re lucky! 🏌🏼

    • Omaha Storm Chasers – what a great name for a team. I love it when local teams have regional names. We used to have the San Francisco Seals prior to the Giants.In a nod to the past, one of the Giant’s mascots is Lou Seal.

  5. I’ll give myself partial credit for thinking THROWNOUT was the answer…wrong, but at least I had the presence of mind to think THROWN was part of the answer. All anagrams solved easily, took out the word THROWN…and the rest is history.

  6. Good morning. I was able to devour the scrambled letters in a timely fashion and after putting the letters down and starring at the letters for a couple of minutes the answer popped into my head. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  7. For the answer, I tried without success to think of a word starting with Re or ending with Ed. Then I spotted Over and  the whole word came to mind. After not playing in 2020, our minor league baseball team  had its home opener this week and even had a pop-up vaccination clinic.
    Wishing all a good day.

  8. Anagrams came quickly,though orbit looked like robot at first.Given the letters,thrown was quickly visible leading to the ultimate overthrown cartoon answer.With 80 degree temps on the horizon,we may have finally turned the corner to spring,if not even summer.

  10. Once I got past overdue instead of devour, I was able to Jumble it out of the park. I notice that the team uniforms are orange and black, do you suppose Jeff & David are latent Giants’ fans?? I read in our local paper yesterday that Hunter Pence is opening up a pop up coffee shop in Oracle Park in time for the series with the Dreaded Dodgers this weekend.

    • Aw…wishful thinking, Betty. Sadly, David and Jeff have nothing to do with the coloring of the cartoons. There’s a “guy” out there who does all that…And sometimes, pretty much knowing what Jeff intended? You wonder if the guy’s a team player! 😉 ⚾️🙋🏻‍♀️

    • That was a great article Betty, about Hunter Pence and his wife choosing to continue living in San Francisco post-retirement. Easily one of the most popular SF Giants of all time, maybe only rivaled by Tim Lincecum. It also mentioned that the proceeds from the popup coffee shop are going to one of their charities.

  12. Hi all – ORBIT took me a couple of jumbles. Then I thought the last word was OVERDO until I started to write it down and saw that it had to be DEVOUR. That was helpful with the answer though, because I didn’t have an idea and thought the word would end in ED, but OVER jumped right out of the letters and left THROWN as the rest.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “In danger of being OVERTHROWN by the competition while battling mites, the WINERY sent an experiment to the International Space Station to see whether the pests would still DEVOUR their vines WHILE in ORBIT and what they could learn from it.”
