"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

River Dance


It’s the Pirates hosting the Reds. I like Cincy, they are a fun team but my heart is with the Pirates.

Everyone loves the Pirates, so says our pal Emma.

Never mind tomorrow:

Let’s Go Buc-cos!

[4] A fifth grader asked me at lunch what the word is last week. When I said no he broke into that diddy. That's thanks to a Family Guy episode if you don't know. : )

Cueto is a little shook right now.

[6] Never seen the Family Guy but have heard of it. Played Surfin' Bird for the Jazz Kids, they loved it. Last night they were grooving to the Motown 25th anniversary special..the one broadcast in 1982! 'Daddy, Michael is so cool!' Yes son, he is. :)

[8] Stupid and funny all at once! : )

I missed Alex being quoted in the Times. Spent too much time listening to the politics of the day. What a waste of time that was.

11 Ara Just Fair   ~  Oct 1, 2013 8:41 pm

A Joe Morgan sighting! Bleh.

12 Alex Belth   ~  Oct 1, 2013 8:47 pm

10) You didn't miss it. The article was only posted this evening so if it makes the print edition it won't appear until tomorrow.

11) I know! And Joe ain't too heppy right now, am he?

13 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Oct 1, 2013 8:48 pm

[11] He'll bring some fighting spirit to the Reds! He was such a bad announcer but damn, check his stats page out. http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/m/morgajo02.shtml

Take the Coltrane!

15 Ara Just Fair   ~  Oct 1, 2013 10:20 pm

I am terrified the Pirates are going to blow this 6-2 9th inning lead.

16 Ara Just Fair   ~  Oct 1, 2013 10:20 pm

One down anyway.

17 Ara Just Fair   ~  Oct 1, 2013 10:21 pm

Two down.

18 Ara Just Fair   ~  Oct 1, 2013 10:21 pm

Sweet. Game over. Bring on the Cardinals.

[12] The Steins appeared to have made an astute business move by selling 50% of YES to Fox earlier this year. Values might never be higher. We'll see if the $189M team salary goal can be met with a strong minority ownership of the network pressuring for a return on investment.

Happy and proud that Alex Belth is quoted in the "Newspaper of Record". Now can I stop being ridiculed by friends and family for following and contributing to a baseball blog?

How about a Cleveland and Pittsburgh World Series? The least favorable matchup for FOX (although w/Tampa it might be worse) but as a fan of the game, the sweetest.
