Will Cards eye winter deal for Tulo?

Back-to-back last place finishes by Colorado has the baseball world wondering if the Rockies might shop Troy Tulowitzki and/or Carlos Gonzalez this offseason, a notion Troy Renck of The Denver Post believes is unlikely. But rumors will likely persist throughout the fall and winter months -- just last week, Tulowitzki was linked to the New York Mets, in fact.

Colorado certainly would be wise to at least listen to offers, considering the state of the franchise, and be willing to pull the trigger on a deal for the right return. Could St. Louis be the perfect trade partner for Tulowitzki?
