Answer:  CHANGED HANDS

(That’s a good older brother.  A new baseball glove kind of sucks, until it gets broken in.  This kid is pretty much good to go.  No oiling it, and tying it up with a ball inside it.  It’s already supple and flexible.  Play ball!

All hand-me-down clue words today.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  But we’ve definitely seen “nagti” at some point in time.  They all came to me right away today.  The answer letter layout was a twisty twelve letter jumble.  It did a fine job of masking the final answer.  But I was a little surprised how quickly that final answer came to me.

First-rate cartoon of some baseball diamonds.  I liked the occasional dandelion poking out of the grass.  A little strange seeing a – real – wooden bat.  Little League uses the aluminum ones, and I think high schools do too.  Looks like a great day to play a game .  Kinda like today!  As Ernie “Mr. Sunshine” Banks would say:  “Let’s play two!”  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Quinton Fortune blames the rain for Ronaldinho's decision to choose Barca  over Man Utd

In our house, everyone has a job, and my job in our house is to play football.”   —   Ronaldinho

(Sounds like a typical lazy, macho dad!  Hey, I’m the bread winner here!  Fetch me my slippers!  And, bring me a beer!  LOL!  Considering he’s now a former football – soccer – player he probably should soften the rhetoric a bit.  This is the 21st Century, broheim!  And, the #MeToo-ers could take you down in a snap!  This is the first quote from the Brazilian superstar to be used in the Cryptoquote, so we welcome him to the Crytoquote Club today.  Now, I’m just waiting to hear from Wes!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.   If today is your birthday, and you have some musical talent, you should consider a career in music!  I counted eleven various singers celebrating their birthdays in Today’s Birthdays!  Gotta be a record!   —   YUR
