Troy Tulowitzki has been a Colorado Rockie his entire Major League Baseball Career. He has easily classified himself as one of the games best shortstops while being with the Rockies. The Rockies have been one of baseball’s worst the last four years as Tulowitzki has only seen the playoffs twice in his career, losing to the Red Sox in the World Series in 2007, his rookie year, and in 2009 to the Philles. The Rockies haven’t won over 75 games since then, and it sounds like Tulowitzki will be meeting with his agent Paul Cohen tomorrow about demanding a trade from the Rockies.
Per Joel Sherman of the New York Post:
One of the most vital moments of this season will occur Thursday at a breakfast meeting in Los Angeles between Troy Tulowitzki and his longtime agent, Paul Cohen.
The two will decide whether it is time to ask Rockies management for a trade.
“To say that it is not a possibility would be silly,” Cohen told The Post by phone.
Last season, Tulowitzki vocalized his desire to be traded to a contending team. According to Mark Kiszla of the Denver Post, Tulowitzki missed the feel of competitive baseball and winning.
“In Todd Helton, there’s someone who’s easy to look at his career here and how it played out. I have the utmost respect for Todd, but at the same time, I don’t want to be the next in line as somebody who was here for a long time and didn’t have a chance to win every single year,” said Tulowitzki, reviewing the 17 years Helton spent as the face of a franchise that never won a division title. “He 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.”
Tulowitzki came into the 2015 season with a six-year contract worth 118 million. He has a .307 batting average with 2 home runs and 10 runs batted in 28 games this season.
