Not that I'm aware. Feel free to ask him on Myspace, though. While you're at it, ask him if he's related to Ally McBeal.

Josh Beal endured a three-game stretch in which he allowed six earned runs and five walks over three innings. He picked up a save yesterday, so hopefully he's back on track.

Since Beal just made his 2009 debut (two innings of shutout relief), I thought this would be a good time to bump this up. Josh has already done much more than what you would expect out of a 44th round draft pick. Keep it up, Josh!

I believe at least one of them is family. The picture is from a couple years ago, so I'm guessing they look a bit less goofy now.

I just made an interesting observation. Josh Beal is the youngest player in the entire Reds organization who has played in AA or higher.
