The Nats are using drones at spring training

Feb 17, 2014, 10:10 AM EDT

Either Bryce Harper has been named an enemy combatant or else the Nats are trying to find fun ways to get pictures of spring training drills:


Based on what CSN Washington is reporting it appears as though this is just for marketing/promotions purposes, not for use in any actual baseball operations. Which is just the latest example of drones not being used to the best of their ability.

    I think I’d give Michael Biehn a call just in case.

      You should be calling Jeff Bezos. Those are just Amazon drones criss-crossing in the sky, dropping copies of Baseball America’s Prospect Handbook hither and yon.

    MAKes perfect sense to me. If you can’t knock the catcher on his ass anymore and he’s blocking the plate, a drone is the obvious alternative.

    Sign-stealing drones. the new controversy.

    Rumors are swirling that the Nats drones are becoming self aware. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

      I would be far more concerned if tea party members ever became self aware.

        Yes, you should Gator. When they figure out how liberals don’t really know what’s best for everybody else, they will revolt.

        They were born believing that. It’s not a product of “thought” in the sense that most of us mean it. It’s as genetic as, say, the bright green color of the extinct arctic mantis.
