Troy Tulowitzki does the ‘Pujols’ at Minute Maid

"Ladies and gentlemen of the theater, an announcement: Playing the role of Albert Pujols tonight will be Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki. And playing the role of Brad Lidge will be Houston Astros reliever Fernando Abad. Please unwrap your candies, turn off your cell phones and prepare for lift off."

Tulowitzki went 1-for-3 with a homer and two RBI in Colorado's 5-3 opening day victory over Houston on Friday. And by turning in that highlight above, I think we're all officially over being worried about him being plunked on the elbow by Ubaldo Jimenez.

Make sure you're ready for the season ahead ...
