  • Burke Badenhop’s Bullpen Bonanza: A Veteran MLB Reliever Shares His Thoughts on the Visiting Pen Scene

    Every dugout is about the same: There are some benches, a bat rack, a helmet thingy, a place for the lineup card, blah blah blah. Every bullpen, however, is as unique as the relievers who call it home. As Burke Badenhop has traversed the American and National Leagues over the past seven seasons, he’s spent ample time in each and every visiting pen. While they’re not all exciting, most have something that makes them special, or at least especially terrible. So get your brain thinking baseball, gas up the bullpen cart, and take a ride with him as he critiques and praises some visiting-team bullpens from around the majors.
