Two weeks ago Lenny Dykstra’s son, 23-year-old minor leaguer Cutter Dykstra, got engaged to Jamie-Lynn Sigler, the 31-year-old actress who played Meadow on “The Sopranos.”
Now they’re having a baby, according to People magazine.
And because we pay so much attention to the use of unnamed “sources” in the baseball reporting world, I was amused by this:
“She couldn’t be more excited!” a source tells PEOPLE. … There’s no wedding date set yet. But one thing’s for certain: “Jamie can’t wait to be a mom,” the source adds.
Phew. I was worried the source might say something like “oh man, she’s really depressed about this and would rather be a baseball blogger than a mom.”
UPDATE, 11:58 PM ET: Ross lost the no-hit bid with one out remaining in the eighth inning. Christian Walker worked a 2-0 count against the right-hander, the doubled to center field to break up the bid and score Deven Marrero. The Padres are tied 1-1 in the bottom of the eighth.
Padres right-hander Tyson Ross has pitched 7 1/3 innings of no-hit ball against the Diamondbacks in Friday’s game. He’s expended 124 pitches so far, the only blemish on his pitching line a handful of walks to Jarrod Dyson, Paul Goldschmidt and Nick Ahmed in the first, seventh and eighth innings, respectively.
Through just over seven innings, Ross whiffed 10 of 25 batters. He’s working with just one run of support: a mammoth 489-foot solo home run from Franchy Cordero in the third.
Should Ross complete the no-no, he’ll be the first pitcher to do so in the club’s 49-year history. The last major-league pitcher to record a no-hitter was Marlins right-hander Edinson Volquez, who held the Diamondbacks hitless last June.
We’ll keep you updated as the game progresses.
