No, Carlos Santana did not "deserve" to have his leg destroyed last night

Like I said, I’m not watching the Carlos Santana video again so the underlying point of this Bleacher Report article — that Carlos Santana shouldn’t have been blocking the plate in that situation — may or may not be a good one, but I don’t care if Santana set up a lounge chair 50 feet up the baseline: this headline is in horrible taste and is totally uncalled for.

Video: Troy Tulowitzki plays along with a photographer who thought he was a pitcher

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.
