Inspired by the classic Wax Vac infomercial, the funny guys at in the MLB Fan Cave put this little diddy together starring Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki (and a Dustin Pedroia doppelganger).

Jorge De La Rosa found his confidence and command for the Colorado Rockies before their game against a Kansas City Royals split squad was rained out after four innings Friday night.
Making a comeback from Tommy John surgery, De La Rosa allowed one hit over three innings in 48-degree weather. The left-hander mixed his pitches effectively, using a slider and changeup with his fastball...
We once called Laura McKeeman “The Next Erin Andrews.” She’s Miss Florida 2012. She’s dating Colorado Rockies infielder Josh Rutledge. And now comes news to us that McKeeman will be your 2013 Padres sideline reporter.
Yesterday’s Padres game just happened to be on the office television when I caught McKeeman giving a report about something that wasn’t really that important...
