Trading Tulowitzki would be a huge mistake.As the Colorado Rockies start playing spring training games, the offseason news has just begun.During the offseason, a few rogue reports suggested that the Rockies explore trades for both superstars Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki. The thinking is that with the Rockies clearly in rebuilding mode, the team should ship off their two best players to get prospects in return.Rockies owner Dick Monfort quickly squelched reports that the club would deal either player. However, as most people who follow sports understand, an owner doesn't always stick to what he promises the fan base. Want proof? Talk to a Miami Marlins fan.On Monday, the rumors began to swirl in earnest, as Yahoo Sports reported that the St. Louis Cardinals have engaged the Rockies in trade discussions regarding Tulowitzki.As it has been well documented on this blog, I feel that Tulowitzki has quite a bit of growing up to do. I believe that the organization thrust the lead...

  • Amen! Any team that would trade Vinny twice and then "welcome" him back - really???? You find pieces and then acquire more to build around them. It was fun when we were the Bombers. Lots of hitting and questionable pitching. Pitching hasn't changed much, but we now we don't bomb like that any more. Can anyone even name our starting lineup now? Starting five pitchers? Are we still on the 75 pitch count - what a joke. I'm not a big Tracy fan, but he wins by not being here for this fiasco.
  • Don't trade Tulo!!!!!

Troy Tulowitzki reclaims best shortstop title

The only thing that has kept Troy Tulowitzki from acclaim as baseball's best shortstop has been his propensity to get injured. He only played 47 games in 2012.

Despite missing those 59 games in 2010 and 2011, he was still a 6...

Q&A: Jordan Pacheco, Rockies’ Mr. Versatile

Jordan Pacheco proved last season that he belongs in the big leagues. In his first full year with the Colorado Rockies, he hit .309/.341/.421, with 32 doubles and five home runs. He appeared in 82 games as a third baseman, 43 at as a first baseman, and five as a catcher. This year he is in spring training with his future in limbo.

Rangers routed by Rockies, still winless

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Walt Weiss and the Colorado Rockies like what they see from Troy Tulowitzki so far in spring training games. Tulowitzki, limited to 47 games last season after left groin surgery, had a two-run single and was involved in four flawless defensive plays during his three innings in the Rockies' 9-1 win over Texas on Monday. Along with a rare double play...

Colorado Rockies 2013 Team Preview

Barring something unforeseen taking place, the Colorado Rockies won’t get a ton of posts on this blog this season. Please enjoy this one. The reason I don’t think the Rockies are due for a lot of run-time is because they have a pitching staff with flies circling it, and a lineup that is in dire need of another true threat. The Rockies have a double edged sword in the way of a...
