Mike Krukow (pictured), the San Francisco Giants' color analyst for Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, has said that Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki can’t possibly be hitting like he has been without cheating.
"I swear he's getting signs," 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.
And that’s from a broadcaster who covered San Francisco Giant super-star Barry Bonds all through the steroid scandal.
Bonds was a central figure in baseball's steroids scandal and was subsequently convicted.
Mike Krukow cheered Bonds but is accusing Tulowitzki of stealing signs with no evidence.
Krukow quickly backed off from his Tulowitzki accusation by saying his comments were tongue-in-cheek.
Yea, right. His tongue-in-cheek alibi came only after his Tulowitzki accusation was challenged.
Mr. Krukow was a pitcher in the major leagues and has been on the microphone of a major league baseball team but his accusation of Troy Tulowitzki was bush-league.
