Answer:  HOME RUNS

(There you go!  Exercising from the comfort of his own abode.  With the wife, kid, sleeping pup, and little plaything at his feet.  Fine cartoon.  I saw no new clue words today, but three new jumbles.  We’ve definitely seen “pomoh” before.  I was able to get them all without any struggle.  The answer letter layout was another nifty jumble.  Nothing obvious about it.  Those surprising Spankmes could make some noise in the post season.  On paper, they were supposed to be a year, or so, from making the playoffs, but Joe Girardi has them playing like world beaters.  Plenty of young home run hitters.  Their pitching is still largely hit or miss, but when they’re on they’re good enough.  I guess we’ll see soon enough.  I’ll be pulling for the Twins to pull an upset.  If they don’t, then I’ll be pulling for the Tribe!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR 

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 09/30/17

BAMBOO   IS   NOT   A   WEED,   IT’S   A   FLOWERING   PLANT.    BAMBOO   IS   A   MAGNIFICENT   PLANT.”   —   STEVE   LACY

(Our first quote from the great Jazz saxophonist and composer, at least since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  I’ve never heard of anybody referring to bamboo as a weed, although I understand it does grow rapidly.  I always thought it was in the grass family!  Maybe he was smoking another magnificent plant when he came up with this???  Or, is “bamboo” some kind of jazz code for what I was alluding to?  This quote did make for a fairly challenging cryptogram though.  I got IS NOT A, and IT’S early on, but it wasn’t until I saw MAGNIFICENT that I was able to put it together.  I don’t think a whole lot of quotes start with BAMBOO!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
