People get hit all the time in baseball, but in the case of Ubaldo Jimenez hitting Troy Tulowitzki, it seemed like it was personal. Do you think Jimenez hit Tulowitzki on purpose? Did Major League Baseball get it right by handing him a five-game suspension?
First it was Ndamukong Suh coming up on the outside (or right through the guard and center, as the case may be) to nearly swipe last season's Heisman Trophy. Now we've got Troy Tulowitzki making a late run in the NL MVP race. We don't know if the two things are related, but the Steelers might want to get in touch with Chris Fuamatu Ma'afala, just in case there's something afoot with the 21st letter of the alphabet.
Tulowitzki and the Rockies finally cooled off, sort of, Sunday against the Dodgers. Tulowitzku had only one RBI and struck out three times in a 7-6 loss in 11 innings.
