As the benches emptied, we were once again briefly treated to one of the saddest sights in all of sports: pitchers slowly flooding onto the field from the bullpens, jogging in not because they want to but because they are obligated. It was extra sad in this video (at the :36 mark) as the bullpens did not even reach the infield before waddling back to their seats beyond the outfield wall to resume their daily routine of flirting with barely legal baseball groupies and flicking sunflower seed shells into a red Solo cup.
