Rockies players not planning on participating in home run derby

Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was the captain of the National League All-Star home run derby team last year, but has no plans to participate this year or anytime in the near future, according to the Denver Post. Although he may be an All-Star this year, with only eight home runs thus far it’s unlikely Tulowitzki would have been selected for the derby anyway.Third baseman Nolan...

Troy Tulowitzki showed his stubborn side and it appears Walt Weiss might have a strained relationship with his All-Star shortstop after a pair of quotes came out on Wednesday indicating the shortstop isn’t necessarily willing to do whatever it takes to help the club win and his manager doesn’t know how to handle it. Nick Groke of the Denver Post was with the Rockies on Wednesday...

Who is in the mid-season shortstop market? – Part II

In Part I of this series, I looked at MLB clubs that were likely in the market to upgrade at that prime infield defensive slot, a.k.a the shortstop. So who might be selling? I don’t know if the Colorado Rockies are, but if I needed a quality shortstop, I’d be knocking at the Rockies’ front office door and with a list of pitching prospects and / or cash for Troy Tulowitzki...

Colorado Rockies need to stop denying Troy Tulowitzki trade rumors

The Colorado Rockies can deny all they want but once the trading deadline comes around, Troy Tulowitzki will be on the block. Tulowitzki can say that he would like to stay on the Rockies but that is not in the best interest for them. The team is not getting any better and Tulowitzki is their best trading piece. They can get the most in return for him. They tried their best to let...

The truth about Troy Tulowitzki

I get it.  Troy Tulowitzki is the heart and soul of the Colorado Rockies.  I’ve been to Coors Field, seen all the Tulo jerseys, heard the applause every time his name is mentioned.  He’s an icon for the club and trading him would be a very hard thing for the Rockies to do. Not only that.  He’s the best shortstop in baseball, right? Up until this season, I would have agreed...

Colorado Rockies scheduled off-days for Troy Tulowitzki are hurting the team

  You’ve got to be careful. The Colorado Rockies star shortstop is extremely talented. However, he is extremely fragile. The Rockies have invested $137 million into their shortstop, so it makes sense that they would try and keep his legs healthy. He’s struggled with groin injuries, hip injuries, quad injuries, and even heavy legs. There is no doubt that the Rockies have to be...

What can MLB teams offer for Troy Tulowitzki?

Some news-that-isn’t-really-news came out yesterday: Troy Tulowitzki will not demand a trade from the Rockies. After meeting with his agent, he decided against trying to force their hand, and will continue to play with the Rockies until they decide to trade him on their own timeline.
