One of the most fascinating players in the game of baseball today, and one that can spark one of those five beer deep bar debates that we all love to have, I give you Troy Tulowitzki of the Colorado Rockies. The shortstop, who will turn 30 this year, finds himself at one of those movie cliché road intersections in the middle of nowhere, and we just aren’t sure which road he will take for the second half of his career. His unmatchable ability pitted against his lengthy injury history and clear cut splits between home and away have made him impossible to identify in terms of his value and his potential legacy. I am first going to try and sell you on why you should sell high on Tulo in your fantasy leagues, and then take a look at his potential legacy when his career comes to an end.
2014 FANTASY TAKE
As you read this right now, Troy Tulowitzki is the best fantasy baseball player. He is batting over .400 with 34 runs scored, 31 RBI , and a scorching OPS of 1.271 after 113 at bats. His walk rate is up (17.5%) and his line drive rate is stellar (30%). Add this to the fact that he is a shortstop and you are going to say I am insane when I give you this nutty piece of advice: SELL HIGH and SELL NOW, especially if you are in a head to head league.
It’s a bold move and I may end up being wrong, but one thing I do know is, he can’t play better than he is right now, and you always sell at peak value. In addition to that, here are my two major points as to why you should sell now, and go get yourself a Mike Trout or Miguel Cabrera.
