The Red Sox have called about Freddy Garcia

The Boston Herald says that the Red Sox, looking to get some “buy-low” starting pitching, have called Freddy Garcia’s agent.

I would presume that the Yankees have at least some degree of interest in bringing Garcia back given that he was pretty darn useful last year.  Which makes one wonder if you can really “buy-low” on a commodity that both the Red Sox and the Yankees both seem to want.

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.
