The Gold Glove award announcements don’t come out until tomorrow, but the Chicago Tribune reports that Mark Buehrle’s wife Jamie posted this today on her Facebook page today:
“So proud of my husband. He is now a TWO time gold glove winner!!!”
I would have been able to report this news myself if it wasn’t for the fact that Jamie Buehrle has ignored my constant friend requests.
Maybe I should change my picture. Do you think I should chance my picture?
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.
