Earlier this week, Krukow told the KNBR morning show that he believes Tulowitzki is stealing signs.
“I swear he’s getting signs,” Krukow said, per MLB.com’s Thomas Harding. “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.”
In response to those accusations, Tulowitzki changed his walk-up music to “I Saw the Sign” during Thursday’s game.
In response to accusations of sign stealing, Troy Tulowitzki is using "I Saw The Sign" as his walk-up song today. Not kidding.

Rockies manager Walt Weiss also mocked Krukow for his comments.
“We’ve got a light bulb on the scoreboard we flash,” he joked. “Keep an eye on Dinger (the Rockies’ mascot); he’s involved. We switch out the balls. We’ve got the umpires in on it. I love it when other teams talk about that. I think it just feeds the beast.”
Tulo’s walk-up music may not have been the best walk-up song we have heard this year, but it was probably the most clever. Can’t a guy just be red hot at the plate? Don’t take anything away from him if you have no evidence.
