Answer:  BALLPARK FIGURE

(Wow!  Another fourteen letter answer!  But, today’s was like a belt-high fastball, coming right down the middle of the plate.  I turned on that sucker, and launched it right into the left-field bleachers, in the Pepsi Porch.

The clue words were all tried and true, but all the jumbles were brand spankin’ new!  It took me a few seconds to see “bunker”.  The answer letter layout was a fine jumble too, but there was nothing ambiguous in today’s cartoon.  Stadium and ballpark are pretty synonymous, and the idiom/answer is popular in the vernacular.  The current owner looks like a rich cowboy.  Probably made his money in oil and gas.  The lucky lottery winner looks like he has zero business sense.  Oh, well.  Sink or swim, kid!  Jeff has some pretty heady numbers there!  12 years and 4183 cartoons!  Those are HOF #s, baby!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
