What does losing 2 months to injury and one hit wonder have anything to do with each other?

Obviously you can't expect much from him offensively since he will be on the DL for 2 months.

From watching games he still has the skill but he is way to aggressive

Looks like the Ol' Second year slump (Before the injury) Swinging at pitches all over the place. High fastballs are his cryptonite. Apparently the roxs hitting coach isn't telling him this though
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

That sucks, I had the choice of taking Tulowitzki or Roberts in the 5th round of one league and I went with Tulo, thinking he'd have more promise (redraft). Thankfully, I have Theriot to take his place, still a big blow.

I've got Theriot to back up Tulo as well, so that's OK.

However I was also using Theriot to back up 2B, behind a certain BJ Upton.

Because what are the chances they both get hurt at the same time? :~(

I see a lot of WW scouring in my near future.......

I have no one to back up Tulowitzki. This sucks. Wish Yahoo would put him on the dadgum DL so I could at least pick up Cedeno or Guzman. %-6

So I see this is where the support group is forming ...

Hi, my name is Duckbill, and I'm a Tulowitzki owner.

Nothing terribly appealing on my waiver wire, so it looks like we'll make do with the hot hand (if there is one) between Crosby and Barmes. Ugh.

Maybe he'll treat use to a second half like he had last year. Ah, who am I kidding?

Timeframe seems very much up in the air. Denver Post says he told teammates 4-8 weeks (which would bring him back before the break).

It will just be a matter of how quickly he heals. Nothing to do but wait it out ... or move on.
