TULOWITZKI NEWS? OH BOY
A quick little note and I'm not gonna get all wrapped up in it, but it's something I want to mention. Trust me, I strongly doubt the Yankees would be connected to Troy Tulowitzki at this point, but I bring it up only because it was a big story this past winter.
According to the New York Post, Tulo is probably going to demand the Rockies for a trade:
"Tulowitzki was described as frustrated with four straight losing seasons and wants out, according to two people who know him well. Cohen would not describe Tulowitzki’s mindset, but it was clear in a 15-minute conversation Cohen clearly sees the value of his client moving to a better place for his mind and body (not playing in high altitude any longer).
The Rockies could hasten their rebuilding by dealing their star shortstop at a time when the Mets, Pirates, Mariners and Padres all have needs at the position. Tulowitzki wears No. 2 in honor of Derek Jeter, but I have been told the Yankees are emphasizing defense and limiting long-term risk and are unlikely to play for Tulowitzki."
Now Joel Sherman is brilliant to even float the idea of the Yankees being connected again, but at least couches it with the fact that it's "unlikely". That being said, there have been unlikely trade ideas that have become reality... it's always interesting come trade deadline.
Anyway, I just wanted to pass this your way... do what you want with it.
