Rockies Lock Up Tulo

The Colorado Rockies are approaching a record-breaking contract with their shortstop, Troy Tulowitzki. The deal is for six years and $30 million, which would take Tulo through 2013, with an option for 2014. This is a great move for the Rockies, and the Yankees should take note. Assuming they pick up the option, have bought out three of Tulo's arbitration years and three of his free agency years. This is something the Yankees should be doing with their young players. They should seriously consider locking up Robinson Cano long-term, and should also give some thought about extending CMW, and in a few years Joba and Phil Hughes.
