Baseball became the subject matter for this 10th episode of Swarming B Radio and the inspiration for it came from a most unlikely source - OMG Insider's very own Thea Andrews. When learning of a recent article that featured Thea in her native Toronto, a light bulb turned on and a Twitter conversation regarding the city and its Toronto Blue Jays baseball team would soon follow. Not to be outdone, an update on the Pittsburgh Pirates' pursuit of its first winning season in two decades was also in the offing. And while there was no mentioning of the recent Biogenesis scandal that took down Ryan Braun, such songs like Joe Walsh's THE CONFESSOR and THE PRETENDER from the Foo Fighters provided the necessary points of emphasis to knock the scandal out of the park. And so too, were the acknowledgements of the cities of Detroit and Boston whose own pennant pursuits were reflected in three other songs, making this show not one for hitting for the cycle but a cycle full of hits.
