Hurdles remain in Mets-Rockies deal for Tulowitzki, Gonzalez

The Rockies and Mets would seem to be perfect trade partners.

Colorado has star players at the very two positions the Mets need in shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and left fielder Carlos Gonzalez, and it needs to think about retooling things after another year fighting and losing the altitude/injury battle.

The Mets have a stash of young pitching prospects, just the sort Colorado so badly needs.

And, in fact, Rockies people have identified the Mets as one of the teams—perhaps the perfect team—that could potentially make a trade of at least one or of their two cornerstone players work. Colorado likes the Mets’ young pitchers, according to people familiar with their thinking, in fact much more than they like some other teams that have shown interest in Tulo and CarGo.

No surprise, the Mets have checked in again with Colorado, as Joel Sherman of the New York Post reported, and as expected the teams will talk again about Tulo and CarGo.

The two teams should have some interesting conversations since they do seem to be such a positional match. However, the chances of a deadline deal involving Tulo and Cargo still seem remote, at best.

You don’t say?
