08:12 AM ET 03.01 | Troy Tulowitzki certainly brings a different energy to the leadership role in the Colorado clubhouse. [Tulowitzki's] voice is coming in loud and clear at last. Entering his sixth full major-league season, the all-star shortstop is prepared to be the Rockies' leader after a quiet passing of the baton this spring by Todd Helton. "This is the way I have always wanted to express myself, but for the first time in my career I really feel like it's my team," Tulowitzki told The Denver Post on Wednesday. "And the reason is Todd." Helton recently pulled Tulowitzki aside, a talk that strengthened their relationship and changed the clubhouse dynamic.

You don't "pass" a torch on a team. It's the team mates who decide who's leading them. Classy story, but filled with subterfuge.

Alacran, you are such a troll. You come on these boards every day and post ignorant arguments, usually so lengthy no one can stay awake long enough to finish it. This time, you were short and to the point and yet you still couldn't get it right. Please just go away.

Hey Miffed, don't feed the trolls.
