Despite rampant speculation that Troy Tulowitzki would be traded to the New York Yankees by now, number 2 remains a Colorado Rockie. The 28-year old short stop is under contract with Colorado through the 2012 season and he insists that he aims to stay here for as long as he can.

During last years dismal Rockies season Tulo was able to participate in fewer than fifty games due to a left groin injury. Rather than being able to help his squad avoid 100 losses, Tulo was forced to watch them post the worst season in franchise history. Now he can't wait to get back into the swing of things.

Tulo told Thomas Harding of MLB.COM that he would have liked to played for team USA in the World Baseball Classic but that rules pertaining to players coming off of injury precluded him from doing so. He also said that rumors that the Rox might have traded him hurt: "I'm fully committed to the team, and it was a weird thing -- the first time I had ever had any trade rumors".

Tulo is optimistic about the upcoming season and upbeat about playing for Walt Weiss. He's looking forward to Spring Training: "no matter how the team did last year, if guys gel and the right people step up, and the good players stay healthy, you always have a chance."
