The artist, who claims not to know any of these players at all, has Darren Daulton looking for his ecstacy in strip #5. If that's not comedy, I don't want to know what comedy is. Other than that, his commentary is way more entertaining than the strips. Especially his description of his own drum playing ability. Great find, vito.

Funny stuff, and good pick-up on the Dutch Daulton drug-seeking Sousepaw. In terms of baseball comic-type things, though, I'm a bit partial to the "Official Chat Room of Major league Baseball" over at The Dugout (which I believe I came to originally through a SportsFilter thread, although I can't find it now). The guys (and gals?) who run that site know baseball, so the "chats" are informed and much funnier, in my mind, for being so -- plus the screen names are ofter genius and the whole IM speak is great fun. A couple of my favorites from years past: Free Agency Chat Room; The Sexual Infidelity of Denny Neagle; and Diamond Kings: Merkle's Boner.

Oh man holden, that is funny shit. The one on their homepage right now with Sheffield is even better. " Kiss_The_Sheff has angrily stormed out of the chatroom."

Regarding strip #12, how do you make an elephant fly? (Try starting with an 8-foot zipper). vito90, this had me sitting in my cube trying to suppress the laughter before HR came in for a counseling session. Great stuff!!! holden, where did you find The Dugout? I love it.
