By now, everyone knows of Tulowitzki's visit to Yankee Stadium this past weekend to see the Yankees play the Toronto Blue Jays and while many see that as Tulowitzki sending a message to the Rockies that he wants out of Colorado, the shortstop said that he was only there to watch and witness his idol, Derek Jeter at least one last time on the field.
But that certainly hasn't stopped people from wondering if Tulowitzki will get his wish and be dealt to the Bronx; whether it be this summer or during the winter and after the 2014 season when Jeter has officially retired from baseball and the Yankees have a vacancy at shortstop. Jon Heyman of CBS Sports and WFAN reported that people around Tulowitzki told him that Tulowitzki would love the idea of replacing Jeter as the Yankees shortstop and would welcome a trade to New York.
"It is unrelated to his day trip, but those close to the shortstop say they believe that if Tulo is to be traded from the Rockies — a team he loves in a city he loves — the Yankees happened to be one of only a handful of teams he'd be happy to join. Friends of Tulowitzki say that while he hasn't necessarily presented a list of pre-approved teams for trade, he does indeed love the history and winning tradition of the Yankees, that he'd love the idea of replacing his idol Derek Jeter, and that he'd happily look past the fact that his beloved No. 2 is taken (Jeter's number will be retired with him after this year) to accept a trade to the Bronx."
