The IRS sued Hal Steinbrenner

The IRS has sued Hal Steinbrenner and his wife, seeking $670,000 back in a refund that the feds now claim was given erroneously. You can read about all the details here.

That’s less than the Yankees paid Boone Logan last year, by the way, so I’m guessing this one will be settled pretty quickly.

 

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.
