Quote of the Day: Kobe Bryant on A-Rod

27 Comments

Kobe Bryant calls A-Rod his friend. After this, one wonders if Rodriguez feels the same way:

 

Funny stuff, but I am not sold on the premise that A-Rod is having “mental problems.”  Call me crazy, but I would not be at all shocked if we find out over the winter that Rodriguez is suffering from the after affects from that fractured hand he sustained over the summer or has some other sort of nagging injury.

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.
