Colorado Rockies franchise shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is sometimes labeled as the most talented shortstop in baseball, however there’s always a “but”.  But he’s always hurt.  After a rampage start over the first half of the 2014 season (there are even MVP talks despite the Rox last place standing), Tulo Glass is once again shelved.  After leaving Saturday’s game after running out a grounder, he will sit two weeks to recover having officially been placed on the Disabled List.

Tulowitzki has only exceeded 130 games in a season once since 2009, and only three out of nine career seasons.  Why the MVP talk?  Glass was leading the NL in batting average and runs (tied) while holding second in home runs.  Despite having two former MVP Top 5 finishers under the age of thirty (Carlos Gonzalez is the other), Colorado finds themselves with the worst record in baseball (tied with the Texas Rangers) and running out of hope for any near-term success.  The four-time All-Star (including 2014) has his name occasionally pops up in trade rumors, however the Rockies have committed that he is their 29-year-old franchise player in the foreseeable future, especially since he’s signed through 2020.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
