So the Cubs are going to use wireless bullpen phones
. Since Wrigley Field has those bullpens (like Greer Stadium) that are along the foul lines, this is really, at a range of about 175 feet, the job for a walkie-talkie, not a cell phone. But since the Lovable Losers apparently don't make enough money from scalping their own tickets
, they're going to do this product tie-in with Motorola.
I wonder what ringtone the bullpen coach will pick for Dusty Baker's calls. Does Larry Rothschild, the beleaguered pitching coach, get his own phone? I can hear Dusty now: "Hey Larry, get Howry up. Uh, here, you can use my phone. I get unlimited daytime minutes." Hey, if the Cubbies want to "innovate" for a change, why not? They were the last team to play under lights, and they're the last team to figure out that Neifi Perez sucks.
