Answer:  ALLOUT EFFORT

(Beautiful!  I love it!  You don’t see triple plays every day!  There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve seen “luvat” before.  Both “fiasco” and “trophy” took me a few seconds to get.  The answer letter layout was a marvelous jumble.  It did a great job of hiding the answer!  The cartoon is a bit of a jumble, with the three defenders at first, but sure, it can happen.  Probably the pitcher, and first and second basemen.  I really like the dejected guy at second, and the guy who desperately tried to get to first by sliding head first.  An overall great jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  These guys were famous for turning double plays, back in the day, but I thought I’d send our guys a little Cubs love, for giving us such a great baseball jumble.   —   YUR

    You’re pretty much on your own with this one, Carl. Sorry, bud. I can’t get them all.

    I do believe you are correct, Sue! It looks like the three pooches, and the dog-talk dialog, was just a big distraction! But, they got me to bite! Congrats, on NOT being baited into THAT dog-fight!

    Brilliant pun! I had a little trouble with TROPHY too. For the final answer, I somehow guessed EFFORT and then pun then became evident. Very nice from Jeff and David.
