Mets interested in Tulowitzki, who Wright says would be perfect for NY

8:02 p.m.: Early Monday, it was reported that the Mets were open to dealing Noah Syndergaard to Colorado as part of a package for Troy Tulowitzki (Passan, July 28).

However, David Lennon of Newsday said later in the day that at the moment, the Mets aren’t willing to move Syndergaard in “any type of deal” (Lennon, July 28).

According to Passan, while the Mets have interest in Tulowitzki, the Rockies are not likely to trade him before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.


Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki would be perfect for New York, David Wright recently told team reporter Mike Puma (NY Post, July 26).

“I do think in the very near future that we’re going to be to the point where we are a piece or two away,” Wright said. “He’s a competitor and he wants to win, and when you’re talking about a player of that caliber, I don’t think that type of guy gets nervous or intimidated by being on the big stage.”



Earlier this week, the Rockies misspelled Tulowitzki’s name on a t-shirt used for a give-away night at their ballpark. The next day, after traveling to Philadelphia for a doctor’s appointment, Tulowitzki was spotted on camera watching the Yankees face the Blue Jays in the seats at Yankee Stadium.

The Mets have contacted the Rockies to say they’re interested in Tulowitzki and OF Carlos Gonzalez, according to columnist Joel Sherman (NY Post, July 25). However, while Gonzalez can be had now, the Rockies are not likely to trade Tulowitzki this summer, MetsBlog’s Matthew Cerrone said this week (Twitter, July 28).

Nevertheless, Puma adds, “The Mets are viewed within the industry as a good trade partner for the Rockies,” since Colorado is seeking young pitching.

Yes. Because with Tulowhatshisname on the DL in July, August, and September, I get more cheap Hyundai Club tickets.

No. They can have Montero, Hefner, Familia, and an outfielder or two. But NO to a trade for Thor

It really depends on who's on the market this offseason. The Mets aren't a post season team this year, so don't deal just because. But an upgrade at SS is badly needed.

You know,the Mets have about a good 5-10 outfielders in their farm system they can trade-off to bring Troy Tulowitzki.So I say the Mets should use two(or three)of those (minor league)outfielders to bring both Tulowitzki & Carlos Gonzalez to Flushing.

No let's keep the young pitcher so that our future will be bright and we can have a great rotation

Yes we are deep in pitching and need a bat

Yes !! Any time. Tulo is a proven and young golden glove SS. Noah is a top prospect but still has to prove he can shine at the Mayor League level. The only problem is that Tulo seems to want to be a Yankee. I'm just saying".

If we have to part with top flight pitching prospects like syndergaard I dont want either tulo or cargo id rather trade for giancarlo stanton...he would be perfect...cargo n tulo would probably be comparable in talent given up...too bad they couldnt trade for trout

We need a shortstop and the did not try for Drew I would make the dsal because he also gives you a pop in the line -up. He is a player and it stimulates the fan base.

Wright is right he is a perfect fit for NY. The New York Yankees

At Coors Tulo is an MVP candidate. Away from it he's an all star. Plus he's a PROSPECT not proven at all. Look at the last few big time hyped Mets prospects Milledge, Generation K, etc. We're in win now mode not in a few years. Absolutely do it.

I think we're all too quick to assume that Colorado is ever going to be willing to trade Tulowitzki away.  He is beloved by their fans and is the face of their franchise.  Think of what would happen here if the Mets were to trade David Wright away for a couple of high-level pitching prospects.  A guy like that is worth more to his current team than to almost any other franchise, and moving him is not a decision that can be made lightly.


My gut says Tulo stays in Colorado long term.

I don't think the majority of the users on this forum understand that Noah Syndergaard doesn't exist on the major league roster yet. His AAA Las Vegas stats are provided by Baseball Reference as shown: ERA 5.16 WHIP 1.521. I'm a stubborn Mets fan that wants to see another winning season before we have multiple holes our the lineup. It isn't often that you see this talent that Tulowitzki possesses and it would be idiotic to let the guy walk when anatomically he's in his prime for the next 5 years. The deal works perfectly because that leads us to 2020.

Yankees does not have the prospects to get Tulo.

I think we all know that Tulo is destined for the Yankees. And they can have him. Between the home/away splits and injury history he's just too much of a gamble. Let's be honest, Felix Mantilla would be an upgrade from Tejada (now cruising along at a .226 clip). I swear, this team is so frustratingly close to being competitive. Just some basic housecleaning and August might be fun. Anybody want a chuckle? Take a look at Abreu's last ten AB's. Makes CY look like Miguel Cabrera.

I think their a better chance they trade for Cargo then Tulo just looking at what both guys have left on their deals....alderson seems to have an infatuation with Jed lowrie from the A's, I think he is a free agent after the season, I don't like him but that's the kind of guy I can see Alderson getting...

Kyle Munroe

Forget this Tull nonsense... He is a great player, yes. However with his injury history and a 6 year commitment it just is not worth it. The guy we should go after is Cargo. He completes our outfield. 2 guys with power in the corners and a gold glove center fielder on the rise who has looked good with the bat and will only get better. Then we go and either sign a guy like JJ hardy or if we wanna get crazy go and trade for Castro to play SS. If we got those 2 guys our lineup would be DANGEROUS.

1. Granderson RF

2. Castro SS

3. Murphy 2B

4. Wright 3B

5. Cargo LF

6. Duda 1b

7. TDA C

8. Lagares

Pitching staff

Harvey

Wheeler

Deform

Colon....( I keep colon strong vet a lot of experience to help the younger guys a rubber arm, and when we make the playoffs he is a proven guy, he brings stability and I love his veteran presence around the young guys. Also I assumed we lose Gee and Noah which is why I don't have them in the starting 5. Our bullpen if easily top 10'in MLB next year.

If these moves are made we will win the division.

Noo, he's too injury prone, I wouldn't mind Castro from the cubs, but not for Noah lol

Later after the deadline you come and post against the front office because they did no make the trade.

NO. NO. NO. Not because of Noah, because of Tulo. Too much money owed & always on DL. For that we would've kept Reyes who was (A) made for Citi Field & (B) he was home grown. Pass. Next.

I don't understand Mets fans, we are crying for a big bat, now we have the second best in front of us , and everybody hate the trade possibility.

@pcshea Syndergaard is universally considered one of the top pitching prospects in all of baseball.  His AAA numbers don't mean that much because Las Vegas is a hitter's paradise and that whole league is offense-focused.  You can't really point to his current ERA there and say that means he's a bust.

Castro is a deal breaker. I would rather see Tejada on the field and that's saying something.

I would totally trade syndergaard for tulo.  Honestly, I thought they were going to just flip Noah for a bat when the Dicky trade went down.
