The Colorado Rockies went to the World Series not that long ago but the remnants of that team are either retired or spread throughout baseball as the team has been unable to appeal to or keep most of its stars that have rolled through.
Ubaldo Jiminez, Matt Holiday and so many others have been traded or have bolted from the team over the years as soon as they get hot and noteworthy and it appears that Troy Tulowitzki is going to be adding his name to that list rather shortly.
According to Jon Heyman from CBSSports.com, the New York Mets want to land Tulowitzki and have had discussions about doing so but at the end of the day they’re confident he would rather be a member of the New York Yankees.
Ultimately, the Mets don’t see themselves as likely to land Tulowitzki — “he wants to be a Yankee” one Mets person said, stating what has becoming obvious — so Gonzalez will presumably be the main focus of talks once they hook up.
Tulowitzki caused an uproar in Colorado when he was caught spending his off time while on the DL at a Yankees game, which set off alarm bells across baseball front offices who saw that one of the best infielders int he game today could be on the move. Of course, Tulowitzki doesn’t get to choose where he goes, but you have to believe that the Yankees ears are perked and listening to the idea of adding Tulowitzki to their infield and as a replacement for Derek Jeter next season.
