Crouse @ NYT:

The people who say organ music gives a ballpark the feel of a cathedral are being supplanted by the likes of Guillen, the White Sox manager who grew up in Venezuela, where he said organ music was not part of the game-day experience.

Guillen compared Faust’s music to the vuvuzela, the South African horn. “At the beginning of the season, it’s fun,” he said. “Now in June or July, it gets old.”

Something doesn’t sound right here.

Never did I imagine that I would be saying that. The truth is, as soon as they won the World Series and I started to negotiate for the next year, one of the suggestions I threw out was: ‘Well, perhaps one of the things you want me to do is only play during day games.’ They heartily agreed that was a great idea. That sent a message to me. That would be an easy way to make a transition for them. The fact that they agreed to it made me feel like I was doing the right thing. I don’t want to overstay myself. I have known for five years that that was the most that I could possibly do.” …
