From The Opponent's Feed™: Some Gringo Has My Baby!!

The Pirates series was the first series lost by the Reds all season. In the booth we have Steve Blass (of Steve Blass Disease fame) doing the color commentary. Steve talks out of his butt on occasion, but is overall quite learned and listenable, even if he mysteriously can't find the microphone all of the sudden.

This series featured interesting nuggets about why Pittsburgh fans hand over their babies so freely, and about the amazing saga of Drew Stubbs and his one-time roommate. HINT: Drew's former roommate not only made the majors, but he was not American actor Michael J. Anderson.

BE CAREFUL, THAT'S AN AN-TEKE.

At one point some fortunate couple passed a cameraman their baby, who was then passed to Pirates legend and former Red, Cincinnati-born Kent Tekulve. Kent signed the baby's onesie with the child still in it, to the delight of the proud parents. Before you have to ask, YES, he autographed it sidearm.

ROOMIE WELCOMED RUDELY WITH LIGHT TOWER POWER

University of Oklahoma grad Daniel McCutchen (a.k.a. "animal touch it," according to my cell phone's autocorrect feature) was a contemporary of Drew Stubbs, who played at rival University of Texas. They got to know each other, and Dan and Drew rented a house together when training in Sarasota.

Later their paths crossed rather incredibly. On August 31, 2008, McCutchen made his MLB debut against the Reds, and Drew Stubbs led off the game. The Reds CFer honked a wanger on the second pitch from his former roomie. That'll teach you to put the seat down next time, roomie!! And no more drinking straight from the ketchup bottle!!
