Wait, the Rockies are eating $6 of Tulowitzki’s contact? Can this possibly be true?


Going back into last night’s tweets about the Troy  Tulowitzki deal is fun. Because you see gems like this:

I’ve looked through all of the relevant parties’ feeds and can’t find any context or explanation for this. Anyone have a clue?

  • The cost of a beer for Tulo on the flight to Toronto?
  • Postage for his toiletries that are over 4oz because the Tulo does NOT check luggage?
  • Cost of Ace bandages for his knees after a week of playing on the turf?

Inquiring minds want to know!

Houston’s Yordan Alvarez leaves game with ankle discomfort

Thomas Shea-USA TODAY Sports

HOUSTON — Houston slugger Yordan Alvarez left the Astros’ game against the Arizona Diamondbacks in the fifth inning with left ankle discomfort.

Alvarez, who is tied for second in the American League with 37 home runs, rolled his ankle running out of the box on a single in the first inning.

He looked to be in some pain as he jogged to first base and was checked on briefly by manager Dusty Baker and a trainer before remaining in the game. Serving as the designated hitter, he struck out in the third inning before being replaced by pinch-hitter David Hensley for his at-bat in the fifth.
