I met up with the baby in a basket near the Addison Metro station.
Red Reporter: Haven't seen you in a while. How have you been?

Basket Baby: I've been really good, except for, you know, the obvious...

RR: What do you mean?

BB: (taps on basket)

RR: Ohhh, right. Sorry about that. It's really more of a hamper, isn't it?

BB: I think I might be strong enough now to jostle it so that the brick falls off.

RR: Let's not get ahead of ourselves. Homer Bailey has allowed 10 runs in his last two starts. And that's in 8.1 innings.

BB: It's the Cubs, though. You know, the Cubs? Darwin Barney's Cubs?

RR: That's what we said last night. The wind is blowing in at 20 knots today. We're going to wait and see.

BB: Don't say "knots." I'm going to have my lawyer get in touch with the governor.

RR: You don't have any rights. You're both a baby and a fictional character.

BB: ROBOT BASKET BABIES NOW.

RR: Go Reds!
