Rockies, Mets likely to wait for winter to hold serious CarGo/Tulo talks
Any Rockies-Mets blockbuster will likely have to wait in the offseason, with New York more likely to land Carlos Gonzalez than Troy Tulowitzki.
"Unless we do speed dating, I think that's safe to say [that any deal will wait until winter]," one person involved in the limited talks said.
There was a suggestion that the Rockies were waiting for a call Monday that never came, but a Mets person denied they neglected to call. In any case, all sides agree that there has been nothing beyond base touching here. The Rockies believe the Mets are one of the teams that matches up well with them since New York has an impressive list of pitching prospects.
Ultimately, the Mets don't see themselves as likely to land Tulowitzki -- "he wants to be a Yankee" one Mets person said, stating what has becoming obvious -- so Gonzalez will presumably be the main focus of talks once they hook up.
