Could someone (preferably a speaker of Spanish) add the IPA for his name? I've heard "moy-ses" and I've heard "moy-say". Which one is correct? Vik Reykja 07:06, 15 Apr 2005 (UTC)


Well... In Español, the name Moisés (Moses) is pronounced mo-e-SES. For more details about this name, you can check at: [1]. Have a nice day. MusiCitizen 14:14, Apr 15, 2005 (UTC)


Can someone explain why his last name is listed as Beltre? Must have been a mistake. I fixed it. NickBall 12:16, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

No is not a mistake. According to this, this, this, and this that's his real name, and the story behind it. Osplace 11:07, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

Giants Images[edit]

I have added two images of Alou to the article that were previously on here. Even though they show him in a Giants uniform, I feel that having images for this article, especially of his unusual batting stance, is important until they can be replaced with fair use images from his current team. - NickBall 06:47, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

Moises Alou pic[edit]

Please stop replacing the free use pic of him with a copyvio one Em0. Also explain how the free use photo of him is "disgusting" like you put in one of you edit summaries. Quadzilla99 17:50, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

  • The account adding the non-free use pic has been blocked indefinitely.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 20:43, 26 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Thanks, that was both lame and ridiculous. Quadzilla99 20:47, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

Picture Date Incorrect[edit]

The picture date was incorrect because it read that he was with the Gaints in March 2006, the picture was taken at Busch Stadium II in St. Louis, at that time Busch Stadium II had been demolished and Busch Stadium III was on the site — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:42, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

Moises as a "five tool player"[edit]

I'm watching the Alex Gibney documentary "Catching Hell." In the program Gibney, who also acts as narrator, says "Moises Alou was not a great fielder." A short time later Moises Alou himself admits that he was "not very good" at defense. This would suggest that Alou, while certainly an excellent offensive player, may not deserve the classification of being a "five tool" player.
