Pitcher's Daughter Still in the Mix on "Idol"

In a shocking twist..."American Idol" cut people who already thought they were safe!

Apparently.  I don't really know to be honest.

What I do know is this...former St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Joe Magrane's daughter Shannon is safe and on to whatever the next round is.

Remember last month during the auditions when judge, Aerosmith frntoman Steven Tyler told the lefty that his daughter Shannon was "hot, humid and happening"?  Well, more disturbing might be how she's described over at Idol's homepage.

She's a teen with a size 11 shoe! Meet Shannon Magrane, who has a funny story about her baseball playing father.

Really?  That's the best way to describe the 16-year-old wannabe singing sensation?

And in case you were wondering, no, this isn't the first time the spawn of a former Major Leaguer has made it on to the show. Heck, it isn't even the first time a family member from one of the 1987 National League Champion Cardinals has made the show.

During Season Four, Niko Smith, son of Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith, made the cut and sang his way to ninth place and a recording deal.
