Recently, balls have been flying around and out of Coors Field like the cards at the end of a Solitaire game.
One big reason is that the best player in baseball (no, not Mike Trout), has been unleashing hell all spring. That player is an unstoppable force of Polish descent at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. Troy Tulowitzki, the Colorado Rockies’ “large” shortstop in the grand tradition of his idol Derek Jeter and Cal Ripken, has quietly been putting together one of the greatest starts in decades. And although the Rockies don’t tend to get much press on the coasts, it has become impossible to ignore the greatest shortstop of his generation. At least, while he stays healthy.
