Rockies trade Tulowitzki for Reyes, magic beans

Colorado Rockies management showed on Monday night that they are unafraid to take a chance.

Following their 9-8 loss to the Chicago Cubs, the last place Rockies (42-55) traded their top player to the Toronto Blue Jays for shortstop Jose Reyes and “a handful of reportedly ‘magic’ beans”.

Tulowitzki is currently batting .300 with 12 home runs and 53 RBIs in 2015. A five time All-Star, he also has won two Gold Gloves in 2010 and 2011.

Reyes is a 13 year veteran and has four home runs in 2015 and is currently batting. 285.

But the story in this trade is clearly those magical beans.

Rockies co-owners Dick and Charlie Monfort will assuredly trump those beans as the saving grace in this trade but questions remain.

Could the true reason for this trade be the $113.7 million dollars that Tulo was due through 2020? (Probably.)

Will Colorado Rockies fans be distracted by the promise of the magical beans despite swapping their best player for them? (Possibly.)

Are these beans truly magical and will they take this franchise to new heights never before attained? (Doubtful.)

Do the Monforts have a long range plan to turn this franchise around; with this trade serving as the start of something big? (Nope.)
