(A great quote, but a very simple solve.  Pray for the people of the Midwest, devastated by these horrible tornadoes!  Does this mean that we’ve passed the point of no return, with the man-made global warming, that so many have denied over the years?  Are there still deniers out there, fiddling while Rome burns?  Does the name Baghdad Bob ring any bells???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  Future Baseball legend, showing a little of his stuff.

IDARAF  =  AFRAID,  BHLUEM  =  HUMBLE,  TGONUI  =  OUTING,  ATHEHL  =  HEALTH,  CRIEEF  =  FIERCE,  DIOYTD  =  ODDITY   —   Giving us:  FAHBTGHTFREOIT

Clue/Question:  He was good at baseball . . .

Answer:  RIGHT OFF THE BAT

(Very short Clue/Question threw me, for a couple of seconds.  I found that just a little different, in a good way.  None of the clue words were new, but they were all jumbled well.  The jumbling of “afraid” – IDARAF – was very close to the earlier jumbling, FIDARA.  I don’t track these, or necessarily catch them, but when I started typing it in as a “Tag” WordPress brought it up.  I guess sometimes it pays, in other ways, to tag these jumbled words.  The answer letter layout was fantastic.  Really top-notch.  I guess the cartoon kind of told me all I needed to know.  That . . . and I’m freakin’ awesome at solving the Jumble!    What was that second clue word again?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
