MLB-licensed tools? Sure, why not?

Apr 26, 2010, 10:27 AM EDT

Usually when we talk about “tools” on this blog, we’re talking about those players who are able to run fast, throw hard, hit the ball far and be almost completely unable to actually play the game of baseball. Sports Business Journal has an article up about tools today, however, and they sound like something that I absolutely do not want:

Sears’
Craftsman brand is teaming with MLB for a line of licensed tools that
will be
available online in time for Father’s Day gift purchases.
Assuming positive sales results, Sears hopes to have a line of
tools, power tools, tool storage and perhaps even lawn and garden
equipment in
its 3,900 stores in time for November and December holiday shopping.

Having a lawnmower with an Atlanta Braves logo on it would only make me all the more bitter to be out mowing my lawn on a Sunday afternoon rather than watching an Atlanta Braves game.

Of course, if they keep playing like they’re playing now, I may rather be out mowing the lawn instead . . .

    We have a new meaning for “Tools Goof”: My in-laws with Cubs logoed pooper scoopers.
    “nationals susan” Susan Slusser covers the A’s, right?

    Maybe I can pick myself up a Mets urinal.

    I would consider Shea Hillenbrand to be an MLB-licensed tool.
