San Diego Padres analyst Mark Grant is quickly becoming a favorite in these parts for his willingness to have fun in the booth. First it was getting this "Mitch Kupchak" joke past Dick Enberg. Now we find him sneaking a "Baba Booey" in a promotional read.
See kids, these kinds of things are funny when you actually don't expect them. Baba Booey in a boring in-game promo - funny. Baba Booey on the golf course when you're the 800th guy to do it in a weeknd - not funny.

Saw him pitch one of the best games I've ever seen: a 1-0 four-hit shutout as a Phoenix Firebird. Tough, tough pitcher.
He was actually originally drafted by the Giants before getting to the Padres and spending most of his career there...but yes, same guy
