Troy Tulowitzki has never felt at home as a Blue Jay.
Blue Jays’ season ends with Game 6 heartbreaker in Kansas City
Home, for a decade, was in Colorado. Tulowitzki felt secure there, immersed in the Denver community. In 2011, shortly after the Rockies gave him a 10-year contract extension, he bought a bigger house there.
“Knowing this is where I am going to be, possibly the rest of my career, I was able to buy a home with more space,” Tulowitzki told the Denver Post early in 2011. “I am looking forward to being an even bigger part of the community.”
That all changed on July 28 of this year when, with no warning, he was traded to Toronto, probably the last place on Earth he expected to land. He did his best to deal with the shock. He gave Jays fans some memorable moments. But from then until now, he has never felt grounded.

Meanwhile, the Dodgers traded for Johnson, Mat Latos and Wood. Latos still hasn’t won a game, and Wood had pitched poorly before Wednesday night. Johnson’s been a disaster.
Oh, and the Dodgers are 7 ½ games ahead of the Giants.
Their big moves didn’t work at all, and all they’ve done is run away and hide.
Which should be the real takeaway here.
The Mets would have a big lead without Cespedes, the Royals without Zobrist; granted, both teams will probably be thrilled to have their prizes next month, not that either player is guaranteed to continue his surge for another few weeks.
Of all those 36 players, it seems to me that only three have made a real difference so far: Price and Tulowitzki with the Blue Jays, and maybe Happ with the Pirates. Without Happ, the Pirates’ lead over the Cubs in the wild-card standings might have vanished by now. Without Price and Tulowitzki, the Blue Jays probably wouldn’t own a semi-comfortable lead over the Yankees.

This isn’t good news for the Jays.
Tulowitzki was sent for an MRI late Saturday afternoon that revealed the fracture in his scapula. He also was diagnosed with upper back muscle bruises and the Blue Jays will monitor his status over the next week before a timeline for his return can be established.
The injury is a potentially devastating blow to a Blue Jays lineup that has been borderline unstoppable since the end of July. Toronto entered play in Game 2 Saturday night having won 31 of 40 games, which is the best 40-game stretch by an American League club since the Twins went 32-8 in 2006.

Some staggering stats have been sent by Sportsnet since the Blue Jays’ huge trade-deadline moves, but nothing as mind-boggling as this: 3.14 million people tuned in on Sportsnet’s broadcast of the game against the Yankees at 10:19 pm on Friday, when Troy Tulowitzki was engaged in a 12-pitch battle against Andrew Miller.
for his generous support.
