Troy Tulowitzki Was Fucking With A Photographer Who Thought He Was A Pitcher

Fucking Photo Day, man. The best. It’s the only time of the year when players on shitty teams can goof off and everybody loves it, and it’s not a topic of discussion on sports radio about how players don’t care that their team is a dumpster fire. Everything’s still a clean slate, and you’re free to show some — wait for it — personality! Wow, imagine that. Baseball players showing a little personality, making themselves seem likable and not acting like complete robots. Damn. What a concept.

Good on Tulo for going along with it, too. I’m sure there are some divas in the league who would’ve been furious. He went from signing a 10-year, $158 million deal with the Colorado Rockies, a team he thought he’d never leave, became the face of their franchise, to getting blind sided by the Rockies in a trade, sent to Toronto where he was much lower on the depth chart of franchise players, to being mistaken for an American League pitcher when he was once the golden standard for shortstops in the National League.

UPDATE: Apparently the photographer knew, but the point still stands that Photo Day is great because players can actually show their personalities, something the game needs a lot more of.
