Everyone kept saying he would come around but he never did. Helton has had back problems in the past and I am making a BOLD prediction that he is hurt. Guys like him and Vlad do not drop off the face of the earth for no reason!
Were you saying the same thing about Chavez 2 weeks ago?
Maybe Helton is injured... but if they want to trade him to Baltimore or anyone else (as the rumors are saying since the start of the season) i don't know why they would let him play if he has a bad back.
Helton's problem is this thing called a "slump"!!! So let not just say anything up in the air and trade a guy who could kill you later in the season by giving stats to someone in front of you in the standings in september.
Maybe you're right and he is injured... if so... then i'll be the first one to tell you you were right. But i will never trade a proven player like him only cause someone on a fantasy baseball forum thinks that he is injured without really knowing it.
This said... i can't wait to see him drive the ball in the outfield!
