5/15 Cheering, Venting, & Tulo Trade

Postby bigh0rt » Fri May 15, 2015 7:32 am

The hottest trade rumor going is that Troy Tulowitzki has demanded a trade out of Colorado. When your best player is demanding to be traded away from the most hitter friendly ballpark in the Majors, that's a red flag. So far he's been linked to the Mets and Padres, but you've got to think a player with his caliber and potential level of play, albeit with the major injury risks attached, will seek consideration from many teams. Where does he ultimately end up?

I have Chase Anderson going today, and really need a strong performance. Hanging on by a thread to the 12th place team, and can't handle a 1 - 5 start.

is there some reason why the Dodgers aren't linked to Tulo?

Jimmy Rollins is old, and not so good anymore. The Dodgers have money. lots of it.

I don't think they will, Rollins is on his last year of his contract and they have Corey Seager in their minors.

Seager moved up to Triple A last week, he's on his way to LA when Rollins falters or 2016 as the starter there.

You think it's bad that he's demanding a trade out of Colorado? How about that it's the Mets and Padres that are linked to him? Who would have thought that these teams would have been a desirable option?

Teams with winning records: Astros, Twins, Mets, Cubs and Padres. The Cubs and Padres improvement was expected based on offseason moves but the other 3?

I meant a red flag for the ball club, not the player.

Yes, both are starting in hitters ballparks, but I prefer Carrasco over Heston
