UPDATE: He’s back on. Yawn.
3:15 PM: Jose Canseco’s various ramblings on Twitter ceased being interesting to me months ago, because at some point that type of thing just gets weird and sad and … well, basically like seeing the same car accident on the side of the road you travel to work every single day.
With that said, the guy had something like 500,000 followers and his tweets were so amusing to many people that it led to speculation he might have a ghost writer. (Imagine that hypothetical person’s life for a moment. Oof.)
It’s a moot point now, because suddenly his Twitter account has been deleted, leaving only this error page in its place:
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.
