Four Potential Trade Suitors for the Rockies' Troy Tulowitzki

When healthy, Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is one of baseball’s most complete and exciting players. The problem is Tulowitzki is hardly healthy. When Tulo is on the diamond, he is one of the elite, five-tool players in the game and potentially one of the faces of baseball. 

 

2014 MLB All-Star Team Rosters: Our Picks

What the rosters would look like if Athlon selected the All-Star teams.
On Sunday night, July 6, MLB will announce the All-Star teams for the big game at Minneapolis on July 15. As always, fan voting will determine the starting position players for each league. Players vote for reserves and pitchers with managers filling out the teams. Rosters consist of 34 players — that’s right, 34 — and each club must be represented. In advance of the big announcement, here are my selections for the two rosters.

Yankees reload for Derek Jeter's final season

The Yankees have enough players in the latter stages of their primes to form a relentless lineup. If they stay reasonably healthy, they will contend in the AL East.

As is always the case it seems, there is no shortage of big stories in the Big Apple. Long-time shortstop and captain Derek Jeter is retiring after the season. Alex Rodriguez became a one-man bizarre reality show before reluctantly taking his 162-game medicine.

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

I don’t care much for the Home Run Derby. Never really have. I usually watch parts of it, but I can’t stay in front of a TV and watch the entire spectacle.

From the pages of Athlon Sports Monthly, here are five major storylines for the 2012 baseball season , as well as our predictions.

New York Yankees 2012 Preview

Jeter and Co. primed to get back to World Series
