MLB Network announced that they’ll be following the Phillies bullpen for a new show called “The Pen”. The show will debut on June 1st and hopefully have many episodes of them getting smoked by the Mets. Apparently, it’s going to be a reality show type of format but not following them around 24 hours a day.
MLB said that they chose to follow the Phillies because of their success last season and their diverse personalities. I’m surprised they wouldn’t have followed a team with a closer competition like the Cubs. It would be fun to see Carlos Marmol and Kevin Gregg trying to top each other’s performances.
Thanks to Awful Announcing for the lead.
