So the much ballyhooed MLB Network invades the airwaves on January 1st and has set up permanent residence in Secaucus, N.J., home to the most depressing stop on the Northeast Corridor Line of New Jersey Transit and what was once considered the stinkiest place in America.
But now Secaucus is home to Harold Reynolds, Mitch Williams, Al Leiter and a handful of other ex MLB players who've signed on to the network as analysts. NJ.com has a slide show of the fancy new offices. And, hey — Friday lunches are free!
To up the baseball geek factor they've also lassoed SI's Tom Verducci and Jon Heyman. And they've also signed on former NESN reporter Hazel Mae and former FSN-er Trenni Kusnierek, to keep your hot stove-loving hearts cozy all winter. Over/under on weeks before HR goes all handsy-uncle hug on them is at three.
Tonight: Go return some presents. It won't be that crowded this evening.
Tomorrow: More slow news day madness and Best Of round-ups to make the day go quicker.
Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin.
