There is a better article than that in the NY media. I guess if you are a Yankee fan you can only hope he is Jeter’s replacement. It has direct quotes from Tulo. Problem is they are sourcing Mark Kiszla.

“He (Todd Helton) played in a couple postseason games and went to one World Series. But that’s not me. I want to be somewhere where there’s a chance to be in the playoffs every single year.”

I think it is definately time to trade Tulo. I think they should target young, ace type pitchers. For example, Matt Harvey or Michael Wacha + prospects. Use Tulo to get two front line rotation guys and they would immediately be a contender next year.

I will say this…..I’ve thought (and continue to think) trading Cargo is a better scenario for us. But when he had his surgery, I was very skeptical about a timeline regarding his comeback. Now……it seems like he’s very close. Thing is……his knee should be better also. So maybe we’ll have a little luck, get him back, and he’ll rake for a couple of weeks. I still like him for Jurickson Profar straight up. We save +/- 15M a year and… Read more »
