HBT Extra: Can Timmy come up big tonight?

Part two of Kay Adams and I talking about the LCSeseses.  This one is game four of the NLCS, with a focus on the absence of Carlos Beltran and the pitching matchups.

Also: I’m pretty sure I screwed up and gave Adam Wainwright a Cy Young award in this bit. Apologies. I’m just trying to stick it to Keith Law, really.

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.
