Book cover of the day: baseball stars cooking

This cookbook — edited by Jeff Loria’s wife — can’t be new because usually these kinds of things are accompanied by a bunch of PR requests to review it and promote it and stuff.  Or maybe it is and I just wasn’t copied on any of the usual spam. I have no idea. All I know for sure is that (a) I’m probably not going to buy it because I don’t cook and really don’t care to learn how; and (b) the cover is absolutely fantastic:

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.
