“What sticks out to me when I hear that, is that I’m really happy that it’s on the road. The first thing we would hear if we were at home was about how it’s a hitter’s ballpark, and they are at home, so that’s why all the doubles. So wait until they go on the road.”

The shortstop, who went two for five with one RBI in the team's 5-2 win over the Brewers, was asked about the team's 2-0 record.

“What does it mean? It means we are 2-0. And tomorrow we have a chance to sweep. We keep hearing that we are not a good team on the road, so we can keep answering some critics about us not being a good road team.”

"I'm trying to put myself in game situations with all the things that I'm doing so that something doesn't sneak up on me that I haven't done before," Tulowitzki said Friday morning.

"There are still some things they need to do on the field before they're even ready to go into a game -- running bases, specifically," manager Walt Weiss said Saturday.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"I'm ready to go," Tulowitzki said. "As far as my schedule is concerned, I'm not too sure about it. Walt (Weiss) is the manager. I'll go at his pace, but it'll probably be slower than I'd like.

"That's what I like to do is compete -- at the highest level. What gets my blood flowing is competing out there in games. So I'm excited."

Tulowitzki has had his fair share of injury issues throughout his career, but he has no doubts he can be in the lineup for an entire season.

"The injury history is something I have to talk about because it is an issue and it's hurt me in the past," he said. "If there's anybody in this locker room who knows baseball and pays attention to it, it's definitely myself.

"But I don't want to talk about this stuff too much. When gametime comes and you see me out there, judge for yourself. I can say I'm as healthy as I want, but it doesn't matter until I go out there and play."


Rockies' Weiss: CarGo, Tulo won't be rushed at start of spring training

"Yes, I think that's the plan," Weiss said. "We will go slowly with those two guys. I feel like position players get ready pretty quickly, so I don't think you need a ton of at-bats. You can always go over to the minor-league side to get at-bats in a day, if needed.

"So I'm not concerned about those guys being ready. They will get their at-bats. The plan is to take it slow early on with Tulo and CarGo, and not put them into a game until they are absolutely ready to do so."
