Tulowitzki will be an all star as soon as 2008 I think
I think you can judge how well a player is going to adjust to the bigs based on how well he adjusts initially. It's not like Tulowitzki was getting unlucky, he was being dominated by pitchers who haven't really dominated major league hitters much this year.
Still, there's a lot more Tulo to see this month. He could go own to make the necessary changes to be ready to start for Colorado in 2008. My original comments pertained to his value as a fantasy addition for 2006, which I am still sticking to. Troy Tulowitzki is not going to be an impact player in most formats from here on out.
On the other side, Matt Kemp dominated initially then looked completely lost and was striking out 3 or 4 times a game, which led to his demotion. Its way to early to tell on either player. I think both have bright futures though. I think will become an elite SS if he can adjust.
