Reader Gobias Industries is not impressed with Scott Boras’ claim about how special Jayson Werth is:
It’s amazing (albeit a bit mathematically impossible) how many
once-in-a-generation talents Boras has represented this generation.
I take a bit of an objection here. Boras is way too sharp to call all of his big free agents “once-in-a-generation” players. Some are “special talents.” Others are “rare talents.” Others are “singular talents” . . .
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.
