Todd Helton. Larry Walker. Dante Bichette. And now Troy Tulowitziki. All names, as of Monday, of former Rockies considered among the team’s all-time greats. With the trade of Tulowitzki to the Toronto Blue Jays, Colorado says goodbye to one of the most prolific offensive and defensive talents to patrol Coors Field.

Ten years ago the Rockies’ No. 1 draft pick signed with the club and on Aug. 30, 2006, against the New York Mets, the Tulo era began in Denver. The very next year, as most Coloradoans remember, the Rockies had their best year in baseball, becoming National League Champs. In 2007 he hit .291, drove in 99 RBI and had 24 homers. He was also a major contributor in the 2007 postseason run, delivering eight hits, three runs, three RBI’s and one home run.

In his first full season in the big leagues, it was obvious that Tulo was going to be a cornerstone of the Rockies franchise for years to come. And over the course of the next eight and half years he was. Now, as he heads for Toronto, Tulo takes with him a list of accolades nearly unrivaled in Rockies history.

In the major offensive categories, Tulo’s name is all over the Rockies record book.

For batters with a minimum average of 3.1 plate appearances per game, here’s how he ranks…

Batting Average: No. 8 (.299)
On-Base Percentage: No. 8 (.371)
Slugging Percentage: No. 9 (.513)
On-Base Plus Slugging: No. 8 (.885)

For all players all-time, his offensive accomplishments are even greater…

At-Bats: No. 5 (3,897)
Plate Appearances: No. 4 (4,415)
Runs: No. 4 (660)

Home Runs: No. 5 (188)

Tulo also ranked highly on some of the not-so friendly offensive stats…

Strikeouts: No. 2 (713)
Double-Plays Grounded Into: No. 3 (117)
Caught Stealing: No. 7 (31)

Through it all, he also racked up numerous national accolades as well.
