Pirates Bullpen Adds Shark Tank

The Miami Marlins have a fish tank behind home plate and we all thought that was unique. The Tampa Bay Rays brought in a penguin to their clubhouse and we thought that was adorable. Well, the Pittsburgh Pirates cannot let those novelties abide. Their bullpen is formidable and is referred to as a shark tank thanks to Jason Grilli’s formidable 22 saves so far this season and their incredible league-leading bullpen ERA. And the only way this can stand is if you actually have a shark tank. And so they did. Pittsburgh brought an actual 150 gallon shark tank in their clubhouse complete with two shark tanks, a puffer fish and a grouper.

Your move, Joe Maddon!
