Quote of the Day: How Albert Belle mellowed

Feb 29, 2012, 11:03 AM EST

Albert Belle, Kenny Lofton, Carlos Baerga

Still struck by that pic of Albert Belle from yesterday. Guy used to be absolutely intimidating and now he looks like someone’s jolly uncle. Time takes its toll.

As do little girls.  Because here’s what Albert has to say about the retired life:

“I’m a stay-at-home dad,” said Belle. “I’m Mr. Mom. My wife and I have four girls. I waited until I was done playing to get married and settle down and start a family.”

Sounds like retirement has treated Albert kindly.  Well, apart from the stalking thing.

    it looks like Belle nailed Lofton with the “pull my finger” joke.

      In camp trying to earn a roster spot. I believe with the Blue Jays.

      He’s currently dodging another Jose Mesa beanball.

    He’s not fat, those are just Belle curves.

    ” I waited until I was done playing to get married and settle down and start a family”

    If a psychopath like Belle can figure that out- why don’t these other idiots who get married and then cheat on their wives in every city they go to? Just one more reason to admire Derek “The Flip Caught Giambi” Jeter.

    I miss the Albert Belle/Big Hurt era of domination.
