Like I said last week, sometimes the Los Angeles Times’ T.J. Simers hits, sometimes he misses. This is a big hit:
Last week Frank McCourt fired Dennis Mannion, the guy who has been
running the Dodgers for the past year while McCourt has been in hiding.
He also dismissed two secretaries, and because McCourt isn’t talking,
I can only assume they were deemed responsible for putting the team’s
poor bullpen together.
Update: The photographer was apparently in on the action, according to Topps. Still pretty funny. (Hat tip: Mike Ashmore)
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.
