Mets have contacted Rockies about Tulowitzki and Gonzalez

The Mets have contacted the Rockies to say they’re interested in SS Troy Tulowitzki and OF Carlos Gonzalez, according to columnist Joel Sherman (NY Post, July 25).

However, Sherman writes, “Keep in mind, Tulowitzki has indicated he has become frustrated playing his prime mainly in non-contention,” and “There is belief if he were to request a trade, ownership would strongly consider fulfilling his wishes.”

According to Sherman, “Tulowitzki has a no-trade provision, wears No. 2 in honor of Derek Jeter and is thought to be considerably more interested in being a Yankee than a Met.”

The Cardinals, who tried and failed to get Tulowitzki last winter, continue to have interest in acquiring him as well, says Sherman.

July 24: The Rockies are not going to trade SS Troy Tulowitzki this season, a good friend who works with the Rockies predicted when I talked to him earlier this week. Instead, despite how they’ve handled him in the past, Colorado will seriously consider moving him for three or four, top major-league prospects this winter. … The Mets are going to check in on him, if they haven’t already, I’ve heard. In addition, I talked to a National League scout last week who believes the Mets have more than enough pitching prospects, along with one of their young catchers, to acquire a player like Tulowitzki, especially if they’re taking on his contract. … I still think Tulowitzki is Alderson’s White Whale. … That said, my bet is Tulowitzki — again — doesn’t get dealt in the next 18 months >> Read more.

All you guys say is that you dont want to have Tulo but almost all of you aren't mets fans

Why would you rather have cargo? Left field of citi field is the same as left field of coors field. I think we should give up Bartolo colon, dilson Herrera, Cesar puello, and rue bun tejada and have Wilmer Flores be the backup of Tulo. Does anybody agree with me?

I'd rather have CarGo than Tulo. CarGo has been more consistent and looks to have a better future. Tulo is good, but once he leaves Denver his numbers drop. Playing in Citi 81 games a year (if he doesn't go on the DL) will kill his avg.

If the Mets get Tulo, they might make the playoffs, Tulowitzki would be a great trade.

Colorado will never compete with LA and SF without major pitching overhaul which the Mets can provide for them to get Tulo, Colorado will hit with or without Tulo, win/win for both clubs, Mets need a big middle of the order bat and a SS and Tulo solves both problems

Terrible will not take a trade for the mets who are going no where. They want to play for a chance at the World Series.

Saw those same stats. True that it's a small sample though. But people are really misquoting the discrepancy in the home-away average splits.

Nothing wrong with asking. Worse thing they can say is no. It's better to say something than nothing at all.

Yeah I don't think Cubs will give up Rizzo. Dk if the Diamondbacks will give up Goldschmidt either. Castro would be a decent choice for SS tho. I think we could get Castro.
