Rockies fall to Cubs with 16 Ks in Reyes’ debut

Jose Reyes was 1-for-3 with a single and a walk to start his Colorado Rockies career in a game that saw the Rockies strike out 16 times against Jon Lester and Hector Rondon. Eddie Butler took the loss for the Rockies; his record is now 3-7. Reyes made his first start in a Rockies uniform after being traded late Monday night from Toronto as part of a deal that sent Troy Tulowitzki...

Lack Of Three-Baggers Part Of Reyes’ Downfall

You have to think the Toronto Blue Jays are smiling at having just gotten rid of Jose Reyes’ contract. Chortling maybe. Under their breaths. What has he done? That is the question Jays’ executives have asked for a long time. Injuries set him back but that’s not all. Sure, the Jays acquired Troy Tulowitzki in return in the Reyes’ blockbuster and his salary is quite astronomical...

DraftKings: Day After Stacking

Tuesday night, there was much action piling into the DFS Volkswagen that was the Toronto Blue Jays hitting. Many saw the matchup against rookie LHP Adam Morgan and stacked their rosters full of Jays accordingly. Not an inexpensive stack, the Jays proceeded to roll up runs in the first two innings, including a dinger from freshly minted leadoff man Devon Travis. The rout was on, yes...

Risky pitchers will prove the worth of Tulo trade

The headline-making trades coming out of the Centennial State of late have been less than spectacular. First with the Nuggets sending Ty Lawson to Houston for what amounts to a set of spare tires, then with the Rockies dealing Troy Tulowitzki for an older, less-productive and equally-costly version of the shortstop, plus three pitching prospects, fans in Colorado might be wondering...

Gut Reaction: Mets 4 Padres 0 (7/27/15)

Jenrry Mejia’s stupidity has cost the Mets his services for the foreseeable future. The Mets will not be reacquainted with Jose Reyes, nor will they be acquiring his new teammate, Carlos Gonzales. David Wright took a few tentative grounders on the Citi Field dirt. But none of that matters tonight. Let the rest of the National League take notice: the hammer has been dropped....

Just how valuable are hitting prospects in the game today?

Major League Baseball is in the final week of the trade deadline and while there has been a lot of rumors, there have only been four big trades made. Johnny Cueto and Ben Zobrist have gone to the Royals. The Rockies and Blue Jays swapped shortstops Troy Tulowitzki and Jose Reyes along with some prospects and LaTroy Hawkins. The Oakland Athletics sent Scott Kazmir to Houston. That’s...

Trading Troy Tulowitzki begins Rockies’ much-needed reconstruction project

This cannot have been how Colorado Rockies fans imagined it would go down. Troy Tulowitzki being traded wasn’t supposed to be a late-night occurrence, happening when many of us were sleeping. (Even in the Mountain time zone, though the shortstop was pulled in the ninth inning of the Rockies’ 9-8 loss to the Cubs on Monday.) This was supposed to be a trade we all saw coming, that...

Jose Reyes may not be in Colorado for long

The dust has settled, and the trade sending Troy Tulowitzki and LaTroy Hawkins from the Colorado Rockies to the Toronto Blue Jays for Jose Reyes and a cadre of young pitching prospects has been made official. The trade may initially go down in as the Tulowitzki-for-Reyes swap, but do not expect Reyes to spend too much time as a member of the Rockies. Jon Morosi of Fox Sports said...

Opinion: No Way Jose

I woke up to the news this morning of the reported (and now confirmed) trade of Troy Tulowitzki to the Blue Jays for Jose Reyes. There, of course, are others involved but for Mets purposes, it is Tulo for Jose. The trade put an end to one major question – will the Mets be able to acquire Tulo? – and started another major question – Can the Mets reacquire Reyes? The way I see...

The Blue Jays offense gets even better with Troy Tulowitzki acquisition

This is a sentence I can’t believe I’m typing – the Toronto Blue Jays have acquired shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and reliever LaTroy Hawkins from the Colorado Rockies in exchange for shortstop Jose Reyes, minor league pitchers Jeff Hoffman, Miguel Castro and Jesús Tinoco. The Blue Jays lineup, somehow, just got even more potent. Tulowitzki will enter the highest scoring offense...

Persistence helped Jays land Tulowitzki; is pitching next?

When Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos acquired Josh Donaldson last offseason, it was because he wouldn’t take no for an answer. Same thing with Troy Tulowitzki. Just as Anthopoulos wore down Athletics GM Billy Beane, he wore down Rockies counterpart Jeff Bridich, according to major-league sources with knowledge of the talks. Anthopoulos first asked the Rockies about Tulowitzki...

Pointless Second Guessing Begins After Tulowitzki-Reyes Trade

In the wake of the Troy Tulowitzki-Jose Reyes deal comes the predictable second-guessing on why the Mets weren’t active for either. Reportedly, they asked about Tulowitzki, but we’ve been hearing that for years. Maybe the Rockies didn’t call the Mets for a last chance to make a deal simply because they knew they wouldn’t bite. And, they shouldn’t have. And, they shouldn’t...

So long and farewell, Troy Tulowitzki

If ever there was a night that defined the Colorado Rockies, last night might have been it. Here’s how it unfolded: In Chicago, the Rockies jumped out of the gates, seizing a 4-0 lead over the Cubs in the fourth inning. Cruising along and pitching a shutout through the first three innings, the franchise’s current “best” pitcher, Jorge De La Rosa, imploded in the bottom of...

Tulo to Toronto: The latest sign that Hal is not his father
