Can we PLEASE stop talking about Troy Tulowitzki?

Okay, so yes we know by posting this we are technically still talking about Troy Tulowitzki, but that’s beside the point. In all seriousness though, the conversation needs to end.

Descalso gets two-year, $3.6M deal with Rockies

DENVER -- The first big league signing of Jeff Bridich's tenure as general manager of the Colorado Rockies was far more sensible than splashy. The Rockies needed a versatile infielder, and so they added Daniel Descalso with a $3.6 million, two-year contract Tuesday. It appears to be a sound investment for a team that's trying to rebound from a 96-loss season, especially after Colorado...

Unquestionably, a healthy Troy Tulowitzki makes the Mets a better team. I read something again today about the Mets dealing for him, but if you are a true fan of the team you know that’s not how they do business.
