The A-Rod supporters are laying it on a tad thick

From outside the A-Rod hearing, Day Two:

Rodriguez arrived in a black SUV with lawyer Joseph Tacopina at approximately 9:30 a.m. ET. He thanked the supporters in Spanish before heading inside. The supporters held signs that read “Randy Levine is the Devil” and “No Justice No Peace.”

I feel like A-Rod got a bum deal and that his suspension is too severe. But really, I’m gonna save my “you are the devil” signs for people who actually work evil in ways that matter to the public and my “No Justice No Peace” signs for injustice that actually imperils the peace.

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.
