Was thinking on offering K-Rod and Y. Escobar for him in one league.

He'll soon turn it around . The guy plays in Coors and is hitting in front of Helton and Holliday, he better turn it around...

Buy low unless the owner is a total deuche, in which case the player has just vanished into a fantasy black hole.

Coors is a big time second half park, I'd buy low on him. I traded Coco Cordero and JJ Hardy for Tulo and Neshek and don't regret it.

He may "turn it around" but how much of a turnaround are we talking here? Equal to last year's stats? Or will he have a worse year?

Last year: (.291 BA, 24 HR, 99 RBI, 104 R, 7 SB)
Is a Miggy Tejada-like .285 25 HR, 105 RBI's fair? Is he still after Hanley, Reyes, and Rollins? I'm shopping JRoll and wondering if he's an "adequate" replacement or if he's a sophomore bust.

I think he'll turn it around and hit something like .290 with 25 HR. The problem with trying to buy low on a guy like Tulo is that the owner is generally too invested into him to give up, even long after it's obvious he's a bust. Most people reached and picked Tulo earlier than they should have anyway. Combine the fact that he was probably the owner's 4th round pick with the fact that he probably doesn't have any other viable SS option, and he's going to go down with the ship before he lets him go.
