Tulowitzki accused of stealing signs by announcer

KUSA - What Troy Tulowitzki doing at home is simply ridiculous. It's not fair – and one San Francisco Giants announcer claims it may even be due to him stealing signals from the opposition.

"I swear he's getting signs," Giants' color analyst for Comcast SportsNet Bay Area Mike Krukow said on the KNBR morning show. The Rockies shortstop has recorded 37 hits at Coors Field – which doesn't sound all that impressive until you realize he's only gotten out on 30 occasions at home.

"There is no way you can hit like that, for this long. I mean, if you hit .571, that's for a weekend or a week. But you don't do it for six weeks. That's insane," he asserted.

Tulowitzki has yet to comment on the situation.

Krukow maintains that the Rockies slugger is never off-balanced at the plate and is never fooled by any of the pitches opponents throw. To the ex-ballplayer – he pitched in the big leagues for 14 seasons as a member of the Cubs, Phillies and Giants – this is notion of cheating is obvious.

"That kind of gets you thinking. If you can get away with it, I guess it's legal," Krukow continued. "I'm not saying that he's doing anything, I'm not throwing it out there ... But I kind of, sort of, kind of am."

These accusations are very rarely reviewed further and consequences for them are even more uncommon. Until proved accurate, what Tulowitzki is doing at home is legal and also simply ludicrous.
