Just in case you didn’t believe it when Colorado Rockies owner Dick Monfort swore he wouldn’t trade Troy Tulowitzki two weeks ago…
And just in case you thought Rockies GM Dan O’Dowd was blowing smoke in September when he responded, “no chance” after he was asked if he would trade Tulo…
Rockies Senior VP Bill Geivett completed the trifecta today on MLB Network when he told Jim Bowden unambiguously that the three-time All Star shortstop wasn’t going anywhere this offseason.
“The plan is to keep them this year and next year. And my plan is to always keep them,” Monfort told The Denver Post.
“Is that the smartest thing in the world to do? I don’t know. But for our fans I think it’s the best thing to do.”
Despite having missed a month because of a rib injury, Tulowitzki put up elite numbers for a shortstop, batting .315 with 81 RBIs and 25 home runs.
The irony here is that even if Tulo was available, which he is clearly not, the Mets don’t have what it takes to get him… Or let me rephrase that, the Mets wouldn’t part with what it would take to get him.
