Tulo at the Yankee game

Start your speculation now!

Who was sitting in the Legends Seats for the Yankees-Blue Jays game on Sunday? None other than Troy Tulowitzki. Tulowitzki, on the DL, was apparently in town for a doctor's visit. He decided to take in the game and appeared on the YES Network's broadcast. Tulowitzki has already said it would be a dream to replace Derek Jeter as the next great Yankee shortstop.

“No doubt, I think everybody knows that. Everybody wants that perfect story, whoever it may be," Tulowitzki told the New York Post at the All-Star game. "Whether it’s me or somebody else who took over for Derek, no doubt, it makes for a great story.

“But right now it’s just talk until it gets closer to happening in the offseason. I think I’m not going to comment on that further. I think it’s one of those things [where] right now, I’m just about the second half of the season.”

Tulowitzki wears No. 2 because of Jeter. He has a 1.035 OPS, which is much superior to the .649 Jeter began the day with. Tulowitzki, 30 in October, is owed $118 million over the next six seasons.

He has been in the news in recent days because of his current's team's inability to spell his name correctly.

Guards would not let reporters into the Legends seats area to speak with Tulowitzki.
