“Bomb squad? Bomb squad? They’re early!”
— Dustin Pedroia, after being told that there was a bomb threat at Fenway before yesterday’s game. He then — and I am not making this up — flexed his muscles.
Between this and his “laser show” comment from the other day, I can’t think of why I’d follow any other Red Sox player around if I were a Boston reporter.
Thursday marked photo day for the Blue Jays. There are always some oddities, usually when the players create fun for themselves. This time, the fun happened when a photographer mistook shortstop Troy Tulowitzki for a pitcher. Tulowitzki rolled with it and followed the photographer’s instructions to pose like a pitcher.
Hazel Mae has the hilarious video:
Hitters, of course, typically pose with a bat over their shoulder. Pitchers typically have their hand in their glove, sometimes leaning forward as if receiving the signs from their catcher.
Tulowitzki has exclusively played shortstop during his 12-year career in the majors, but perhaps one day he’ll step on the mound and be able to call himself a pitcher.
