Cue Yakkity Sax. Yet again...

The Trop down in Tampa has the bullpens in foul territory, where foul balls can reach easily. I have no idea why this is, but it is what it is. Anywhoo, when you're getting to later innings and have to warm a pitcher up you march your pitcher and your bullpen catcher out there. The catcher has his back to the game, so you need someone to protect him, and warn him to get out of the way, if needed. Who is giving this mucho important task? Well, yesterday it was 1 fucking 12 year old ball boy. So, what happens when there is a foul pop up that Willie Harris is tracking from third that heads into the bullpen? Need I ask? (Warning... Shitty ass screen grabs ahead)
