Long-time Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki — who briefly suited up for the Yankees in 2019 —, so what better time to reflect upon his legacy? The legacy of Tulowitzki is an inner-circle all-time Rockies great. He has been one of the young franchise’s faces, but his resume is not quite worthy of Cooperstown.
A first-round pick out of Long Beach State in 2005, Tulowitzki would reach the majors one year later. He was good almost immediately, finishing second in NL Rookie of the Year voting in 2007 and helping the Rockies ride an incredible hot streak all the way to the World Series. It was the lone pennant in club history.
