  1. Good Morning, Everyone…I hope this finds you well…

    🎶 Strike one, caught you by surprise…Strike two, right before your eyes…Pitch three, this one’s to the wall…Ain’t no game like a game of HARDBALL…🎶 “Hardball” -Sammie w/ Bow Wow, Lil Wayne & Lil Zane 2001 https://tinyurl.com/msfxzs9c

    💰 He wasn’t all that BULKY, but a great player was he,
    His DADDY taught him well…today he’s the team’s MVP…
    And when the time came to PARLAY his strengths into the best purse,
    He trusted that his agent would overcome the curse…
    That sometimes can fell rookies…when WEALTH is in their reach,
    But luckily his agent said…”I’m def not here to preach…
    My player has just what it takes…he ranks above them all…”
    And so negotiations? Went well ‘cause he PLAYED HARDBALL! 💰

    It may have originated in Baseball, and it’s used here today with a Baseball PITCH, but the phrase Playing Hardball is a pretty common idiom, so I’m thinking it’s a SAFE bet to say that whether you’re a Baseball fan or not, you shouldn’t be OUT IN LEFT FIELD with this solve…and I’m sure you brought it on HOME in no time…

    …So…Our player Duke SLIDER, and his agent, Juan Nahearnobull…after they went to BAT and SCORED a great contract…because they PLAYED HARDBALL! https://tinyurl.com/4tdr8es3 …And we definitely SCORED with our dialogue. Jeff THREW in enough hints in the form of Baseball terms to CHOKE a horse! “Hit”, “Grand Slam”, “Balk”, “MVP”…he definitely COVERED the BASES with this one…

    And his Gems?…Juan’s desk is made OUT to look like a Baseball, (note the virgules)… he has four phones on it…and he’s wearing an earbud…And if you bring the picture AGAINST THE WALL, (where our guys are seen celebrating with champagne), closely into your FIELD of vision…you’ll see that Duke has the signature Jumble “J” on his jersey…4 Gems…And Jeff HITS a Grand Slam of his own!

    So…There you have it Folks…Done! Have a good one. Be well, be kind, stay safe…and here’s to Duke…I’m sure when it’s time to hang up his jersey, it’ll be at the end of a wonderful ERA…💰⚾️🙋🏻‍♀️


  2. 🦺When it came down to the issue of the “BULKY DADDY” sweaters, as they decided to market them as, they hoped to PARLAY their profits into some serious WEALTH…and determinedly PLAYED HARDBALL…🦺

    🤷🏻‍♂️Determined that he’d PARLAY winnings under his belt,
    He knew that as a DADDY it all came down to WEALTH
    Responsibility felt BULKY…he definitely felt the pall…
    He had no choice ‘cept step up…and so he PLAYED HARDBALL…🤷🏻‍♂️

  3. This week has been really fun ! I have to admit that today was the toughest ! The anagrams were there for me , but I just couldn’t figure out all the letters in the jumble ! They PLAYED HARDBALL ! I think maybe my patience starts to wear thin towards the end of the week ! But I enjoyed it ! Everyone have a great thirsty-Thursday !!!!!!

  4. Good morning. I was stuck on Wealth so I went straight to the cartoon and to my surprise I got a blind solve. Checked my answer to the number of spaces and then saw I needed EHAL to make it happen and before long I came up with wealth for the last word. This makes it twice in a row now that I got the last word by getting the blind solve. Things are looking up. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  5. It was one of those days that a blind solve came to me…and with anagrams solved speedily…all was just like a routine double play. I will say that the anagrams were a little tricky. Have a great Thirsty Thursday…maybe Egg Nog in keeping with the holiday season !!!

  6. I guess I also played hardball this morning w the puzzle with a clean sweep including a blind solve of the cartoon for this Cleveland INDIANS fan.

    • Hi Chuck. Good to see you. It’s not the word as is, though. Baseball vs Hardball…I guess David decided to SWING it…🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. 👏🏻👏🏻 ‘Twas no swing and a miss this time out,
    Juan determined to exercise clout…
    He had faith in the Duke,
    The guy wasn’t a fluke…
    Baseball prowess what he’s all about…👏🏻👏🏻

    👍🏻 At the table he played his cards right,
    Went in willing to put up a fight…
    Figured if these guys balked,
    He’d be ready to walk…
    Management he was prepared to smite! 👍🏻

    💰Now Duke’s sitting on top of the heap,
    Having earned what he felt was his keep…
    Juan fought them tooth and nail,
    Determined not to bail…
    Good ball players today don’t come cheap!💰
