Tulo Missing From NY vs Rox Lineup

Troy Tulowitzki is out of the lineup again, this time because of “minor swelling in his left groin”. He believes he tweaked it in the LA series and an MRI showed there was something there, but it is “unrelated” to his previous groin issue, according to the team.

The Rockies will take on the NY Yankees at Coors for three, starting tonight at 6:40.

Here is the starting lineup for the Rockies:

1. Dexter Fowler (S) CF
2. Josh Rutledge (R) 2B
3. Carlos Gonzalez (L) LF
4. Michael Cuddyer (R) RF
5. Todd Helton (L) 1B
6. Nolan Arenado (R) 3B
7. Yorvit Torrealba (R) C
8. Jonathan Herrera (S) SS
9. Jorge De La Rosa (L) P

Hello I am Troy I broke a nail Tulowitzki. Please come with me and I will show you around the training table. Again, I don’t blame the Rox for being careful with Tulo with these cold weather games and such, but you have to find a way to be more durable Tulo. Got to figure it out. And if something is wrong then put him on the DL and get him right. Can’t be playing a day and then sit… Read more »

Tired of all the Tulo sniping on this site.Without him we are last place.like last year.With him the difference is obvious.That said,the old Denver Post wretch-Dave Kreiger and I had a simultaneous thought about 5pm.today.Solve 2 recurring injury problems for next year-“the Ernie Banks solution”-move Tulo to first base!Power corner bat with great hands and defensive skills,tall,agile,and filling a position of need.Kreiger said the problem is Tulo would never accept it.WTF,I mean isn’t he under contract till 2018,a team leader,driven… Read more »

Tulo at 1st and never get to see his arm again? No thanks.

I can see moving him to third and moving Arenado to 1st instead.

Tulo IS the primary reason why we are doing so well…thus the reason he needs to be on the field and not be overly protective.

Gary, remember last season? There was much talk about moving Tulo to 3rd. He would have no part of it. He did say maybe later in his career but no way now. And by the way, Krieger asked him his thoughts on moving to 3rd last season. You might not like all the sniping but for me the obvious is becoming more apparent. I thought maybe I was totally wrong about some of my offseason comments and thoughts but as… Read more »

Gary, I think part of the Tulo sniping is due to the perception he’s not “…a team leader,driven to win and excel.” Keeps coming off as a spoiled ass prima donna. I think they were hoping a little Cuddyer would rub off on him. If nothing else, all these injuries are going to force him to think about changing positions.

I agree 100 percent Gary that Tulo means the world to this team. The Rox are WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY better with him on the field. He is imo the best SS in the game today and no doubt about a top 10 player in the game if not a top 5 player in the game when you combine defense and offense. Tulo has to be on the field for the Rox to have any chance. Tulo sitting… Read more »

Could this be a power play on the part of Tulo and his agent to get himself traded to St. Louis? Has Tulo been talking to his buddy Matt Holliday? We all know STL needs a SS badly and they may be the only team with a slew of top notch prospects to offer the Rox. Can we imagine for a minute the following scenario playing out next offseason: Rox brass approaches Tulo and says “Tulo, we need you on… Read more »

BTW, Tyler Chatwood pitched a gem last night at CS:
9 IP, 0 Runs, 4 H, 8 Ks

Give the kid credit, he gets sent down and doesn’t mope. Goes out and makes it tough on Rox brass to keep him down. OK, it’s now on you Nicasio and Francis.

Nah. He could easily press the team to trade him without faking injuries. I just think he’s petrified of being injured that every tweek or soreness he verbalizes it. Then the team and Tulo jump into caution mode and give him time off. I’ve read several quotes of the years from him where he says something like “I felt sore and I got scared.” “Scared”? Really? “Scared” of what? You’re a multimillionaire with guaranteed money. You know whats scary Tulo?… Read more »

wow. I am really sorry for the loss of your friend, Jared. My prayers are with her family.

What very sad news, Jaredean. My daughter had a baby 2 weeks ago and all is well, so I can especially sympathize with your friend’s family that she did NOT come through. Best wishes for strength and healing.

And I’m with you on Tulo. He is allowed his feelings and his perspective on his life and profession, no matter the money he makes. That’s irrelevant.

But I do not deny that some true, major adversity for Tulo might humble him and that wouldn’t be a bad thing. I remember hearing how he has never been on the “losing end” in his entire life, at every level of baseball and maybe otherwise…

I just find it hard to believe the official denials that this injury is completely unrelated to the injury in the same place in the same leg last year … … the moving Tulo to 1B idea would actually make sense, at least in the short term (but can he stretch for throws?). After all, right now when Helton is out they essentially use EYJ or Pacheco at 1B (with EYJ, Cuddyer comes in from RF, so it’s the functional… Read more »

I wasn’t insinuating he’s dogging it, just merely playing devil’s advocate.

Tulo could be a DH and still an injury would find him.

Speaking of being competitive again, let me outline a best case scenario that keeps this team in the race — the classic “playing meaningful games in September.” The Billy Beane line is you use the first third to figure out what you’ve got and what you’ve need. The second third is to get those pieces you need to compete. The final third is to win with them. We’re about a dozen games from finishing the first third of the season.… Read more »

Is Charlie healthy? How are he and Colvin playing? Would be very happy with either or both coming back up.

Colvin: .299/.346/.505, 4 HR, 27 strikeouts in 97 at bats. Those numbers look good, but they’re kind of blah for an outfielder in the hitter happy PCL.

Blackmon: .320/.430/.540, 3 HR, 18 strikeouts in 100 at bats. Pretty impressive, particularly that on base percentage.

Neither guy is just flat out tearing it up, but both would be worthy additions and would bring a whole lot more to the bench than the current bench roster.

I think Tulo is now following RWO.
Notice the really low ratings all the comments have where the poster criticized him.
For example, what Cameo said was perfectly reasonable, but he got a 1.4/5 from 7 ratings?
