I would like to present the newest member of The Rayshead Army, Hannah Elizabeth Gaines. Born this morning at 10:17, weighing 9lbs 2oz. Mrs. Prof and Baby Prof are doing great.



  1. smely says:

    CONGRATS to both of you :)

  2. Charles says:

    Aw! That brings a little smile to my heart :). Congrats!

  3. Andy Kline says:

    Congratulations! I love the cap.

  4. Dustin says:

    Wow, what a great picture. Congratulations!

  5. Sam A says:

    She’s beautiful! Congratulations!

  6. Brett says:

    Congrats Cork. Like the cap. Can’t wait to hear her opinion on the team.

  7. Chris says:

    Beautiful! Congatulations.

  8. KillaTapes says:

    Very nice, congrats!

  9. zenny says:

    I could go with a tasteless joke about “popping a Cork”, but I won’t go there.


  10. Chris says:

    Congrats Gaines family.

  11. Beth says:

    Congratulations! It’s a beautiful photo.

    Do you think she’ll be ready to be our closer by 2010?

  12. Brett says:


  13. MikeD says:

    Hey congrats Cork, Mrs. Cork & beautiful little Hannah Elizabeth

  14. Rayhawk says:

    Congrats!! Mr & Mrs Cork…will you be picking up her option for 2010?

  15. Brixology says:

    Nice work, Cork. Congratulations!

  16. Scot says:

    We wish good health to everyone in your family. There is good evidence that the kid will initially look like you for evolutionary reasons. However, be assured that will change as she ages and she will look more like Mrs. Prof.

  17. Gus, a mere casual fan says:

    Congrats. When she is arbitration eligible in 12 years, things will get expensive for you, so enjoy the “team controlled” years while you have them.

  18. Voice of reason says:

    Congrats and best of luck to all three of you!

  19. Rays Renegade says:

    Awesome addition to the Army.
    I can not wait for 10 years from now when she is the Teaching Asistant or Associate Professor for RaysIndex.
    Always great to have an additon to the Rays Republic.
    Blessing to mom and baby Hannah Elizabeth.

  20. Jim Staub says:

    She’s beautiful…congratulations….now keep her away from Joe Maddon….lol

  21. Mark says:

    Congrats to you and your wife. She looks beautiful.

  22. Mark says:

    By the way does this mean we’re going to start seeing random articles written at 3 and 4 in the morning?

  23. Good for you sir, and the wife, pretty baby girl without a doubt. I’ve got a 10 month old that would love to argue Moore vs Barnese btw. :)

    Gotta ask, where did you have this child, the Golan Heights? Four wristbands on mom? Geez, I would think the security detail for the Mayor of Raysville would be ample.

    Take care and get some sleep, and add some kids stuff to the Rayshead Store!


  24. Deadeye says:

    Congrats! You are blessed.

  25. Jim says:


  26. Hal says:

    Awesome. Since you are obviously busy, I’ll do last night’s update for you: Good start from Nieman, a few runs, bully explosion late – under .500 becoming real.

  27. Jessica says:

    Congrats on your new arrival! I’m glad you have such good news in your life to offset this terrible stretch the Rays are going through. She’s super cute. Make sure you enjoy her, that first year goes by fast.

  30. Bobby Fenton says:

    Where is the GBT thread for the birth?

  31. Don says:

    Ok Professor…you are the MAN!
    Little more important than how the Rays are doing!
    Good luck (lifetime) to your new “rookie”!!

  32. Dirtbag Fan says:


    My most heartfelt congratulations on this happiest of occasions.
