Bullpen phones didn’t need fixin’, but MLB went and fixed ‘em anyway. The league and T-Mobile have announced an agreement that eliminates land lines and makes calls to the bullpen a wireless experience. The system will work on a closed network, and it’s only a matter of time before some manager loses his bullpen phone and things go haywire. I will shamelessly admit I’m rooting for that. The docks for these new bullpen phones can be seen here. Apparently some corporation will have to step forward with a sponsorship before the game is improved in a meaningful way, such as expanded replay.
Anyway, here is your open thread for the evening. Neither of the basketball locals are in action, so you’re on your own for entertainment. Talk about whatever you like here. Enjoy.
