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.
