Today in TUCK! sez

TUCK! sez: And somewhere, Robin Ventura shakes his head

This site is a poor imitation of one great blog already, so I’ll refrain from explaining today’s extremely stupid TUCK! sez comic on the Hardball Times, out of respect to Joe Mathlete. Nevertheless, I can’t comprehend why Tuck would suggest that Nolan Ryan or anyone involved with the Rangers auction at all wasn’t aware of the team’s debt obligations. Does Tuck really think he’s the first person to realize that the new owners will have to take care of that debt?

Tuck consistently produces the worst comics I’ve ever seen, but in terms of sheer stupidity of concept–not to mention execution–this one is in a class of its own.

I’ll indulge myself and touch on execution briefly. These are my issues: (1) Is it actually funnier to say “US Bankruptcy Court -n- Auction House” [sic] than “US Bankruptcy Court”? (2) Why is the American judge wearing a judge’s wig? (3) Does the empty speech bubble represent that Ryan is lost for words or did Tuck just forget to fill that one in? (4) How is the judge’s disembodied right arm coming from a mystery curl that isn’t attached the rest of the wig? (5) Is Judge Nelms’s left hand really just a giant thumb? (6) And why is he so evil?

  1. “This site is a poor imitation of one great blog already,”

    what great blog would that be?

    • That would be Fire Joe Morgan. I’m far too easily distracted from criticizing just bad SABR writing though, which is why I don’t want to make explicit comparisons. FJM was fantastic and this site sucks. I know that.

      • maybe the writing isn’t as funny as FJM, but you are my #1 (and only) destination for the latest SABR nerd drama, so you definitely fill a niche

  2. You should learn the difference between “it’s” and “its” . . .

  3. I thought this tuck sez was kind of cute.
