With Troy Tulowitzki taking time to see a New York Yankees game Sunday, it almost seems as though he is going to be be traded from the Colorado Rockies. Here are five teams that should be willing to make an offer for him.

5. Pittsburgh Pirates

The Pirates have the most ready prospects to be traded and could make a huge splash by acquiring someone like Tulowitzki or a Jon Lester-type pitcher. However, Tulowitzki's contract is large and Pittsburgh will probably not commit to a ton of his money.

4. Chicago Cubs

Another organization loaded with prospects are the Cubs. The Cubs are loaded at the shortstop position, which would be why a trade with the Rockies to acquire a veteran like Tulowitzki would make sense. However, the money situation with the Cubs would not add up. There is no way the Cubs take on Tulowitzki's contract.

3. Boston Red Sox

The Red Sox are going through a youth movement right now having just acquired two top prospects from the San Francisco Giants for Jake Peavy. With Boston loading, are the Red Sox making a break for someone bigger? Could Tulowitzki be on the radar?

2. New York Yankees

The Yankees trading for Tulowitzki makes sense because the team does not have a bright future at that position once Derek Jeter retires. New York is always willing to take on big contract, but the haul for the Rockies would be limited. It is unclear if New York would want to purge its farm system again.

The Mets are yearning for another star to add to the David Wright-Curtis Granderson combo. Whether the team would be willing to increase its payroll is one question and the other question would be if the team wants to purge the farm system. The Mets would have to give up at least two or three of its top prospects for Tulowitzki undoubtedly.
