The Bullpen Season 2 Episode 10: A Video Call To Garry

Kurt: long-term reliever-turned starting pitcher
Lorenzo: middle-relief pitcher
Jason: bullpen coach
Robert: 8th inning/setup pitcher
Bryan: closer
Eli: left-handed specialist
Garry: former bullpen coach

Jason: I'm bored.
Bryan: Me too. Want to ask one of us to warm up?
Jason: No point. 
Robert: Want to play Go Fish?
Eli: We've done that so many times, aren't you tired of it yet?
Robert: A little bit, but only because I've never won a game.
Jason: A game of baseball or a game of Go Fish?
Robert: Both.
Lorenzo: Why don't we call Garry?
Jason: I'm sure he has better things to do. He left the team at the end of last season.
Lorenzo: Because he was tired of not doing anything.
Jason: Actually I think it was because even this was too much for him. I do wonder how he's doing though.
Eli: Should we?
Jason: We probably can't, I don't think any of us have his number.
Kurt: I have his number.
Jason: In that case, sure. But let's make it look like we're having fun so that he misses us.
Kurt: He'll know we're faking.
Jason: I suppose. Fine, not like we have anything else going on.
*Kurt takes out his phone to video call Garry.*
Garry: What.
Kurt: Hey Garry! Remember me?
Garry: How could I not? The most memorable experience of my life was coaching guys who didn't need coaching.
Lorenzo: You really thought we were that good?
Garry: Of course not, I just knew you weren't going into the games. Why are you calling, is Jason giving you all trouble? I told him the best thing to do is just sit back and do nothing but I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't listen.
Jason: Right here. We all are.
Garry: Seriously? They'd save so much money by getting rid of some of you.
Robert: We know. 
Lorenzo: They're actually spending money on us. That new bench was installed, and now we have a snack bar too. We have our own hot dog guy, but he's not here right now.
Garry: Wow, you've gotten really delusional.
Eli: It's actually true. We all had root beer floats in the first inning. You know, because of National Root Beer Float Day?
Garry: I was not aware that today is National Root Beer Float Day, but I'll take your word for it.
Eli: Yeah, the team is spending more money on us, despite us not pitching at all.
Jason: Kurt went in a game a while ago and pitched really well so I have a theory they're just trying to appease to him.
Kurt: I thought that was a widely known fact?
Garry: Wait, you're pitching? I always knew you had potential.
Kurt: Really? 
Garry: No.
Kurt: Sorry, you're breaking up, I couldn't really hear what you just said. 
Garry: I say no.
Kurt: No as in you don't know, or no as in the opposite of yes?
Garry: No. N-O. 
Kurt: Got it. Wait what were we talking about again?
Garry: Forget it. Nice to hear from you guys, I guess.
Eli: How's your new team doing?
Garry: Great. I mean, they play so it's a change of pace for me. One of these days I need to go down to one of your games.
Eli: Why would you want to do that? Do you miss us?
Garry: Actually I just wanted to see the snack bar for myself.

Robert: Better get here early because Lorenzo completely wipes out a few of the options before the rest of us even get here.
Lorenzo: Yeah, I've started to come to the games early. Gotta get the food while it's fresh.
Garry: Cotton candy is never fresh.
Lorenzo: How did you know there was cotton candy?
Garry: Because I know you. 
Lorenzo: Fair enough. I'm gonna get myself another root beer float.
Garry: Bye now.
*Garry ends the video call.*
Robert: Oh what's this ball doing here?
Bryan: Must've been a home run. None of us were paying attention, were we?
Unnamed Fan: No, we've been trying to get your attention! Sit down and shut up!
Lorenzo: You too!
Jason: Someone get him before he gets ejected from a game he never played in. 
Robert: The umpires aren't paying attention, we can let it go.
Kurt: The big screen is.
Jason: Alright, let's leave.
*Everyone leaves the bullpen, despite the game not being over. No calls to the bullpen are needed to be made.*
