Wonder If She Called Him Joey

Sad tale about Albert Belle, the one-time Cleveland and Baltimore outfield great with limitless potential that his volatility sometimes hindered.

Belle is a complex person. Outstanding power hitter and one of two Orioles who could complete a New York Times crossword puzzle. The other was former Oriole and current Yankee Mike Mussina, a Stanford alum. I recall reading an article once that indicated that the two would compete to see who could complete a puzzle faster.

Unfortunately, this story isn't about losing a "Best of Will Shortz" crossword puzzle contest. No, it's about a tempestuous thirty-nine year-old and a broken relationship.
