Running and Tulo

Just a head's up for those interested that I posted responses to a few reader questions on BP's Unfiltered blog in response to last week's Schrodinger's Bat column.

Also just read the six-year deal with a club option for 2014 that Troy Tulowitzki signed with the Rockies. At $30M the deal seems like a good one for the Rockies, especially the club option that would take him through his age 28 season and buy out his second year of free agency. Certainly investing in any young player involves risk (and perhaps more so for hitters in Colorado) but in Tulowitzki the upside for the club is substantial because of his contributions on both sides of the ball. As for his fielding I had him at +18.6 runs using my Simple Fielding Runs (SFR) system, ranking second behind only Omar Vizquel.
