Tulo Retires 

Post#1 » by JaysRule15 » Fri Jul 26, 2019 3:29 am

Great career, but exposed outside the confines of Coors Field. Guess the injuries also caught up to him. It was a "meh" trade, but I guess it helped us get to the playoffs.

Shoutout to that one guy here who guaranteed Jays would regret giving him away to a division rival :lol:

Guess he had nothing more to prove after that grape fruit home run.

It’s unfortunate that injuries derailed a surefire HOF career into something that seems to fall well short, and that’s especially unfortunate since Toronto was left holding the bag when the music stopped.

It's unfortunate, but Tulo's ticket was punched quite a long time ago. Just hope that none of the injuries cause him quality-of-life issues down the road.

Too bad he couldn't have done that while still with the Jays - would have saved us a bunch of money. It's clear he never wanted to play here, but I'll never forget that ~half season he rescued us from the fielding terror known as Jose Reyes.

“We could have gone forever. (Raptors management) kept knocking on the door and I was like, ‘A couple more minutes.’ Because we were really into it."

Tulo, we hardly knew ye. Because you were always injured. If we could've gotten All-Star Tulo I think we would've won a championship or at least make the World Series.

Just for kicks I checked the YouTube video and there was Tulo right in the middle of everything with his batting helmet on, just like everyone else.

Or are you just upset that he didn’t go into the middle of the pile doing a flying scissor kick?
