St. Paddy’s Day post…
Happy St Patrick’s Day to everyone!
There is a great article on the Tucson Citizen Newspaper website by John Moredich on Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki. Nothing that alot of fans dont already know about Tulo, but it basically covers Tulo’s first season in the majors (2007), his leadership abilities, and his struggles in the first half of the season in 2008.
“I want the guys to look at me in this locker room and say, ‘He has that leader mentality and he is a good player because he works his butt off and takes this game seriously because he cares, not only about himself, but the team,’ ” Tulowitzki said. – Tucson Citizen
There is no doubt that Tulo is the face of the franchise, especially now that Matt Holliday has moved on to greener pastures with the Athletics.
There’s also a nice write up by the Associated Press on Jhoulys Chacin and his start against the D’back yesterday. Read here.
Rockies take on the Royals this afternoon at 2:05pm.
