Tulo still has his share of health concerns as well. So that may drop his price down a tad and make teams hesitant to include a bigtime hitting prospect. Tulowitzki is simply not a 150+ game a year player. He is a GREAT player, but there is also a very good possibility he's going to be not in the lineup 30-50 times a season. Seems like his future may be an AL DH eventually.

 

While we have the horses to get him I wouldn't want to give up Noah AND Nimmo (a deal would probably start with both of them) for Tulo.

 

A CarGo deal is likely one or the other.

Mets to Rockies: Let’s talk Tulowitzki, Gonzalez trade

http://nypost.com/20...i-cargo-trades/

 

 

As a symbol of where they are in their rebuilding effort and the growing strength of their farm system, Mets officials have told their Rockies counterparts if Troy Tulowitzki or Carlos Gonzalez are ever made available, they want in on the action.

Rockies ownership has strongly stated it does not want to deal CarGo and, especially, Tulowitzki. But the extended run of poor play by the franchise, the growing contracts of the two players and the teeming disenchantment of the fan base has moved many within the industry to believe that decision could change, if not now, then this offseason.

An AL executive who checked in with the Rockies described a club in some disarray concerning who will be making front office decisions in the future, but not ready yet to trade a huge piece now. An NL executive said he believes owner Dick Monfort will consider the move more than ever, but ultimately is too loyal and committed to those players to move them.

I always thought the notion of league rankings was overrated. (and I'm not just saying that because the Jets weren't Top 10 last season either) It's a statistic that's relative NOT to how poorly your team may be playing.. but to how the rest of the league has improved. In 2010, the Jets ranked 3rd in the AFC.. and 3rd throughout the entire NFL. Last season the Jets defense ranked 11th throughout the entire NFL.. and 4th in the AFC.

 

We play 4 NFC teams this season.. why the hell should I even care where their teams rank?!   :noclue:  The important thing is where my team finishes\ranks in the Conference they play in. That's ultimately what's going to matter in getting the Jets into the playoffs. The Jets defense has ranked Top 5 in the AFC, every single season Rex has been here. THAT's what matters to me.

 

plus an offense can really effect what position the defense is put in. The Jets committed a ton of turnovers last year, they had a lot of 3 and outs...that put a lot of strain on a D that would've likely looked better with even a league average O.

the dif is in 2010 u had the 3rd best defense in the nfl. last season the jets didnt even finish in the top10

 

In terms of yards given up as well as yards per game, last year the Jets defense was 11th (seattle's to no surprise was 1st)

 

The Jets also had the 3rd best rush defense in football last year

 

If the secondary can be even average, the Jets will be back in the top 10 easily
