There is some truth to the axiom that it is sometimes better to be lucky than good, as Bowie Baysox pitcher Terry Farrar demonstrated last night.Farrar wasn't exactly good against the Reading Phillies at Memorial Stadium, finding himself in the middle of two bases-loaded jams in his five innings of work. But he was lucky and resourceful enough to get out of trouble and to pace the Baysox to a 4-1 win over the Phillies in the first game of a doubleheader.Farrar (1-1) pitched only two innings in which a runner did not reach base, yet he did not surrender a run until the fifth.

The wizardry of computer graphics has become so other-worldly that it's easy to imagine the army of specialists that worked on Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen hidden in some underground laboratory-bunker, scurrying like super-intelligent lab rats to create "sights no one has ever seen before" under the excruciating pressure of a hugely expensive franchise picture. But the role of visual effects supervisor is as hands-on and real-world as jobs come. Industrial Light and Magic's Scott Farrar has performed it to perfection on both Transformers pictures.

HE WANTED TO GO HOME, so to speak. After seven years of highly experimental solo work, singer-songwriter-musician Jay Farrar decided to reassemble his critically acclaimed alternative country-rock band, Son Volt. On the new album, Okemah and the Melody of Riot, he reminds fans of the band's past glory while showcasing progressive musical and lyrical ideas. The CD appeared in July and garnered enthusiastically positive reviews. "The right mix of pastoral beauty and bar-band swagger," Rolling Stone said.

Roger W. Straus Jr., 87, a Guggenheim heir who co-founded one of the great publishing houses of the 20th century, died Tuesday of pneumonia at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan, according to his son, Roger Straus III. The longtime head of Farrar, Straus & Giroux, he was among the last of the true old-fashioned publishers. He ran his own company for more than half a century, holding on even as the book world evolved from a small, clannish community to an increasingly impersonal, money-minded business.

Any singer, wrote legendary - and shapely - soprano Geraldine Farrar, "must bear in mind that the world of opera is one of illusion, of fantasy, of exaggeration - and that it is hard to nurse poetic and fantastical illusions, no matter how fine the voice, when the eye is oppressed by the sight of some 300 pounds of human avoirdupois." As much as I revere Farrar (via her vintage recordings), I think her reasoning was a little off. But her views won't go away. No doubt, if she were around today, Farrar would have weighed in heavily on the side of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, which generated international headlines last month by dismissing Deborah Voigt from its production of Strauss' Ariadne auf Naxos this June.
