DANIEL DESCALSO RUMORS

Rockies win in first game of the post-Tulo era

Daniel Descalso did his best to show Rockies manager Walt Weiss that he can fill Troy Tulowitzki’s departed cleats, at least somewhat, in Tuesday’s win against the Chicago Cubs, the club’s first game since August 2006 without Troy Tulowitzki on payroll.

Taking another look at Daniel Descalso

Daniel Descalso has been busy doing what he does best: Frustrating lots of St. Louis Cardinals fans. This time around, he’s back to his old tricks, namely getting clutch hits late in important games that ultimately set the team up to win games. What a jerk.

Are Descalso’s Days Numbered?

Daniel Descalso will enter the spring simultaneously in an unfamiliar, yet accustomed, position. In one regard, he is at odds with the team over his contract, and as a first-time eligible arbitration candidate, he gets to stake a claim for himself.
