  • How long before Tulowitzki becomes a Yankee?

    I was wathcing the "Top 10 (or 9)" by position on the MLB Channel a few weeks back. I happened to catch the short stop episode. They all agreed, hands down, Tulowitzki (right now) is the best short stop in baseball. One host suggested he is the best player in MLB. Other hosts argued it is still Pujols, and of course the discussion went no where.

    So, Tulowitzki is a top 5 player...He plays in Denver, which he enjoys. However, Mike O' Dowd the Rockies GM as not shown the ability to make trades and acquisitions lately that are improving the team. Tulowtizki wants to win a World Series. Within the next 2-3 (maybe 1-2 years) the Yankees are going to need a new short stop. Do they make a move to trade for Tulowitzki?
    Take a good look (at Jim Tracy), you won't see him for long! (my play on Drew Goodman's homerun call...)

    This Yankees fan hopes he becomes a Yankee really soon!

    However, they would need to give up a ton of talent in return.
    My top 10 players:

    1. Babe Ruth
    2. Barry Bonds
    3. Ty Cobb
    4. Ted Williams
    5. Willie Mays
    6. Alex Rodriguez
    7. Hank Aaron
    8. Honus Wagner
    9. Lou Gehrig
    10. Mickey Mantle

      Didn't he sign a big contract extension? Not that would stop a trade, especially to the Yanks. I just thought he was there for a while.

        Yes, he will be paid a minimum of $152,250,000 over the next 10 years.

          Chump change to the Yankees. Walking around money. They were paying AJ Burnett more than that (per year).
          They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

            I don't see Tulo going anywhere anytime soon, be it the Yankees or anyone else. And I wouldn't discount them from contending this year.

              Hey, while they're at it, maybe the Yankees could snap up Jose Reyes when the Marlins embark on their next fire sale.
              The Mets have the best, smartest fans in baseball.

                Tulo is too young to be a Yankee for now. They are currently obsessed with stockpiling old players.

                  Yeah, he has to be at least 35...Maybe they'd want Helton instead? Seriously though, Tulo isn't going anywhere. The Rox have a great core of young players and they'll be contending. The Yanks don't have the goods to trade for him anyway.

                    Yeah they have all really old guys...CC, Nova, Pineda, Cano, Hughes, Tex, Granderson, Gardner. I could go on, but you get the point.

                    Yes they have some older guys on the team, but have had them for a few years now...no? Arod has been a Yankee now for 9 seasons, Jeter 17 seasons, Mo same thing. Still pretty good old guys arent they? They just signed some older bench players Ibanez, Chavez.

                    There are few teams that would like to trade rosters

                      I thought the days of Yankee entitlement to any good player were over.

                        I seem to remember this same topic coming up about a year ago or so and having it turn into the usual half Yankee bashing half big market defending 15 page mess.

                            You never know. If the Rockies start sucking and attendance goes to hell they may want to unload Tulo. With the weight of his contract few teams are going to be willing to take on that burden. His contract from 2014-2020 will be $130M.

                              One of the interesting things about Colorado, is the last two seasons, with a few exceptions, the Rockies have been pretty awful at times. (And they still draw a crowd.) If the general manager O'Dowd can't make them a contender I see no reason for Tulowitzki, who wants to win a World Series ring, not to go to a city that has the potential to deliver that. I think New York because they'll need a short stop in the fairly near future.
                              Take a good look (at Jim Tracy), you won't see him for long! (my play on Drew Goodman's homerun call...)
