Colorado Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez might be on the trade market this offseason, but new general manager Jeff Bridich is still unsure if the team will move forward and sell either one of them. "They're marquee guys," Bridich said. "It's the best shortstop in the game when healthy, and it's arguably the best left fielder in the game when healthy. The recognition of that type of talent makes it tough to swallow the pill of wanting to trade these guys."
