(I wonder if there are currently any brother pitchers in the major leagues?  Back when I was a kid, there were the Niekro brothers, Joe and Phil.  They were entertaining because they both could throw the knuckleball, although Phil was better known for it.  They both had long and productive careers, 22 and 24 years, respectively.  I also remember the Perry brothers, Jim and Gaylord.  They both had storied careers, as well.  There have been plenty of others, but they were either long before me, or one of them was much more dominant, and longer lasting, than the other.  There are loads of other brothers in baseball, playing other positions.  The Upton brothers even play for the same team!

There were no new clue words, today.  But, all of the jumbling appeared to be new, to me.  “Glory” is one of those words that nicely spells out in alphabetical order.  None of them gave me any trouble.  The answer letter layout worked well.  Nothing obvious about it.  Fun cartoon.  Nothing too fancy for a Monday.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    That’s cool, Charley! I’ve never really timed myself. And, I’d probably stink If I had someone else time me! But, one like today’s took VERY little time. Thanks for checking in!

    Oh great, I somehow managed to miss this puzzler!! And now I know the answer :(. I do remember the Niekro brothers and Gaylord Perry–basically for they playtime with the . But I really only remember Phil and Gaylord from and that would be for their playtime with the Braves.

    Oh my word Charlie!!! Awesome!

    Unc, when I’ve had to find our Jumbler in the Seattle paper, I found it will actually time me. The results have not been stellar! I’ll try it on today’s Jumbler (7/8) and will report on the 8th’s spoiler.

    I just love this jumbled fun! LL
