Hot Stove: ‘Strong indications’ Tulowitzki to Yankees isn’t happening


You’ve heard the name Troy Tulowitzki thrown in trade rumors this offseason and for some of the trade rumors, you may have heard his name linked to the Yankees. The thought of Tulowitzki at shortstop replacing Derek Jeter sounds tempting, but is it likely to happen?

Andy Martino of the New York Daily News says the Yankees are operating as if they’re not into taking another big contract and that would include trading with the Colorado Rockies for Troy Tulowitzki and his gigantic contract.

Tulowitzki’s elite abilities are obvious, but the Yanks are sending clear signals that they have no interest whatsoever in assuming the final six years and $114 million remaining on the shortstop’s contract. Already dealing with Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira, CC Sabathia (and to a lesser extent, Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran), the team truly does not want to take on another expensive deal.

If the Yankees were to even consider going after Tulowitzki, they have to look at their payroll and realize that they’re spending too much money on little production.

The Yankees are planning to take a more frugal approach this offseason, staying away from the big names on the free agent market. With that being said, the Yankees showed no interest in Pablo Sandoval or Hanley Ramirez, letting the two free agents wander to their division rivals, the Boston Red Sox. The Yankees don’t appear to be interested in any of the top free agent signings including Jon Lester or Max Scherzer.

Oh, wouldn’t the boss be proud? .

    It doesn't matter what the Yankees want, they won't get Tulo because Colorado isn't dumping his salary; they want value back, and the Yankees don't have the pieces to get it done.

      to quote Delia, "too much money on little production." That's the problem. Not enough breathing room for mistakes.

    if Tulowitzki wants to play in the Bronx, the Yankees will bring him to the Bronx and his salary won't be any problem.
