The Toronto Blue Jays are tearing it all down and the next step in their rebuild is releasing the injury prone former star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki. Tulo missed the entire 2018 season with a heel injury and the year prior to that, he hit just .249 and was a shell of his former self.
I’m smiling ear to ear as I write this. Tulowitzki claimed to have grown up a Yankees fan. He was pretty much penciled in to replace Derek Jeter and then he signed a 10-year $157 million deal which is fine. Get your money, my guy.
But then in July 2015, he was traded to my mortal enemies, the Toronto Blue Jays as he joined alongside my foes Josh Donaldson, Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion.
They are offically all gone. Donaldson just signed with the Atlanta Braves. Edwin Encarnacion is playing in Cleveland. Jose Bautista and I are both unemployed and now Troy Tulowitzki is joining us at the bar at noon.
Tulowitzki has missed at least 30 games in 7 straight seasons. It’s safe to say that this 34-year bum is done. Oh no. What a shame. Shrug.gif.
sidenote: Hey Yankees, you are allowed to do this with Jacoby Ellsbury. You’re allowed.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think Troy Tulowitzki’s career is over. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
