Giants’ Kelby Tomlinson Has To Be The Offspring Of Ernie From My Three Sons

Kelby Tomlinson was called up from Triple-A Sacramento on Aug. 3 to replace the injured Joe Panik, and the Giants were so impressed that they then made a strong play for Chase Utley of the Phils.
Utley went to the Dodgers, and Tomlinson stayed at second for SF -- where he's hitting .310. Plus, he just got the first home of his Major League career, and it was a grand slam.
That gave the Giants a 9-1 lead over the Cubs in the 8th, as the teams continued to battle for the second and last NL wild-card spot.
It wasn't until that momemet that I realized that Tomlinson must be related to the guy who played Ernie on My Three Sons. That was a TV show ... you don't have MyTV? Guys with glasses get no respect around here.
