How Boring Must a Minor League Clubhouse Be?

Deadspin reports on the latest prank against Jeff Francoeur (just called up to the majors, where he will likely succeed for a little while before reverting to his usual not-so-selective self).

I watched the video so you don’t have to: they lock him in a bathroom, and he escapes through the ceiling tiles.

It is a very boring video.

I mean, I’m not saying life over here is any more interesting, but it is a very, very boring video, with the only notable thing being how amused all of the players seem to be about the fact that they have locked someone in the bathroom.

I tried the same stunt with my mother-in-law and it was not nearly so funny.*

*I did not. But I needed an ending for this post.

You’re right so far on the first half of your prediction.

Update: 14.3% K%, 28.6% BB%

That’s Barry Bonds territory right there.

They should take cues from the Albuquerque Isotopes. I hear they party so hard they end up biting each others’ ears off!
