Vin Scully & Troy Tulowitzki’s Mullet

This is typically the purview of the excellent blog Vin Scully is My Homeboy, but I was so excited about it I couldn’t wait to see if he’d get around to doing it himself.

UPDATE: Courtesy of Deadspin, here’s the audio:

Check out this transcript of Vin Scully’s call of Troy Tulowitzki’s sixth-inning at-bat last night in the Rockies-Dodgers tilt: cuts in mid-sentence

…made an off-balance throw and he got Blake at first base and, in reading the Colorado paper about the game, they said his throw was just a little bit longer than the mullet that he wears.

And I remember reading that and I thought ‘Mullet? Mullet’s a fish!’ So, we went on the computer and it’s both! It’s a hairdo and a fish. But there’s nothing fishy about this kid – he can really play. Troy batting .321.

Hiroki Kuroda made 90 pitches in the first five innings, so you know he’s on thin ice. And down in the bullpen George Sherrill begins to loosen up.

0-2 to Tulo with three left handers in a row to follow him. That would be Smith, Helton and Stewart.


Is the mullet another word for like a ponytail? I mean, I’m trying to look at it. Where’s the mullet? it’s not a ponytail

Tulowitzki strikes out swinging.

Oh! We’ll watch him go back to the dugout.


Can you tell anything about that now? When he takes his hat off maybe…

It’d be my luck, he won’t take the helmet off, right? We just talked about it…

Ah… alright now… so it’s just a lot of hair, the mullet?

Vin Scully trying to figure out a mullet. There’s nothing more to say.
