He played in 151 games for the Rockies last season and he was 161 for 543 (.297 avg, .930 OPS) with 101 runs scored, 32 homers, 92 RBIs and 20 stolen bases. Tulowitzki has now played 4 years for the Rockies in which he has played in 432 games. In those games, Tulowitzki is 460 for 1,625 (.283 avg, .831 OPS) with 268 runs scored, 65 homers, 243 RBIs and 31 stolen bases. As long as Tulowitzki stays healthy he will be a player that the Rockies will be able to build around as only Hanley Ramirez is a better shortstop than he is in the N.L.
