Every great bullpen deserves a colorful nickname, and Padres relievers Heath Bell and Mike Adams have come up with one for San Diego's best-in-baseball bullpen.
Adams, the eighth-inning specialist, enlisted his tattoo artist to create the "PENitentiary" logo
Padres relievers distributed "PENitentiary" shirts in the clubhouse to bullpen members before Friday's game against the Orioles.
In blue print against a gray background, a National League logo is depicted behind jail bars. Nearby is the phrase: "Got 'em in lockdown!"
Bell proudly displayed a shirt. "It's awesome," said the closer, who is 2-0 with a 1.98 ERA and 17 saves.
