Coming to eBay soon: Rockies giveaway jerseys with Troy Tulowitzki's name misspelled.

Troy Tulowitzki went on the disabled list earlier this week, but it wasn't for surgery to have one of the t's in his last name removed. At least that would have explained what happened Saturday night at Coors Field.

The Colorado Rockies were giving away jerseys bearing the name of their All-Star shortstop, except it was misspelled, leaving out the second "T."

Let's give the Rockies credit, though. They put out a statement in which they promised to make it up to fans who got the "Tulowizki" jerseys, allowing them to exchange for shirts with his name spelled right and also get a free ticket to another game.

In the meantime, of course this became Twitter fare.
