Buzzing on Yahoo Sports:

Troy Tulowitzki is perhaps not at his best

At this point, it's difficult for Troy Tulowitzki to actually lower his batting average. He managed to do it yesterday, however. Tulowitzki went 0-for-5 against the Dodgers and dropped to .157 on the season.

In the eighth inning, with the bases loaded and the score tied, he grounded into an inning-ending double play. His team eventually lost 3-2.

Not a good day...unless of course you're looking to trade for him.

Tulowitzki has lowered his strikeout percentage so far this season, and his batted-ball rates are almost exactly where they were last year. His BABIP is only .176, though.

The thing you needed to know about Tulowitzki when you drafted him is this: in 2007, most of his useful fantasy production occurred at home. He hit 15 of his 24 home runs at Coors Field, and his batting average was 70 points higher in Colorado than it was on the road. He also struggled in April, batting only .244 with two homers.

Be patient. Next month, the Rockies' schedule is promising. Colorado plays 16 games at home. When they travel, it's mostly to hitter-friendly destinations: at ARI, at PHI, at CHC. Expect a surge.

And no, you should not drop him for Ronny Cedeno. Stop doing that.
