    Tulo will miss 4-6 weeks.

    This is a tough blow for the Rockies. Tulo has Hall of Fame talent but just seems to always get injured. It's a shame because he's probably my favorite non-Cardinals player. How much do you think this will hurt the Rockies competitiveness in the NL West going forward?

    Drastic difference. The pitching staff is far from good when they are healthy...and they're having trouble staying healthy. Compensating for that alone is tough enough for any team. Then take .347/.414/.639 out of the middle of the lineup? Unless CarGo turns into 2004 Bonds, they're going to struggle.

    I wish I could say this was unexpected. Like Mike, he is one of my favorite non-Reds. If only he could stay on the field. But yea, without Tulo, this team will struggle mightily.

    After watching the video of him getting hurt, the landing was a little awkward, looked like he came down at a bit of a weird angle when he dove. Didn't look like enough to break his rib though. Oh well.

    Shortstop is tough physically. No doubt about it. I once checked to see the Hall of Fame members who mostly played SS... they all fell off a cliff once they hit age 35 (physically and stats). Barry Larkin is a prime example of this. And of course the more modern players (hint hint) might play longer and put up decent stats.

    It's a shame the Reds played them already.

    Also saw CarGo got hit by a foul ball and was taken out of yesterday's game Fowler took a pitch off the hand and is day to day. Did the Rockies dig up an ancient grave or something yesterday?

    Can Tulo play the OF? How is he getting injured?

    Every year, I think about taking this guy in the first round in fantasy. Every year, I'm glad I didn't.

    Seriously though, this sucks. He's arguably the best all-around player in the game when healthy. Big loss for baseball, once again.

    Right. Because we always need to insinuate about PED's in every thread.

    I believe I read somewhere that he was bothered by his side for the past week and that dive in the field sorta aggrevated the side some more. I guess it aggravated it to the point it was broken.

    I am with you all. Tulo is truly a special player, but he stays hurt. I feel the pain on my fantasy team too, but going into the year, I said if I can get about 120-130 games from him, I will be pleased and he was going to do just that until now. Oh well.

    Before the current PED's, there were others. Back to the Greeks. I'm not sure why it always has to be added as an asterisk to every conversation.

    No offense intended to you though, RFA1966. I realize you are not the culprit.

    I finally learned my lesson last year. Tulo puts up great numbers but he is a China Doll. It sucks for the MLB and especially the Rocks and their fans.
