He had even less protection in the lineup around him last season with Wilson out. He has more protection around him than people like Eric Chavez do. He plays in a joke of a ballpark where routine fly balls are homers. And still he blows and puts up D. Mienkiewitz numbers. All excuses.

He is either hurt, slumping horrificially, or is a roid-boy suffering withdrawal ala Bret Boone and Giambi (both of which started to fall off the cliff last season). The roids argument is gaining a lot more weight with each passing day. It is no coincidence that last uyear, when roids testing was first introduced in any form, guys like Raffy Palmeiro, B. Boone and Giambi all became garbage. Maybe Helton continued to shoot the Flaxseed oil because there were no real penalties inplace last season and no names would be published. Now that he had to stop juicing, he follows the Giambi path to toal waste of foodness.

Helton and Barry??? Good idea! Let's put them together.

How many think that Helton was on steroids?

JUST KIDDING!!! DO NOT ANSWER THAT QUESTION!!!

:-D

Seriously, though, I'd buy low in a keeper league.

im thinking of trying to move him actually.

I have nick johnson and delgado as well.

nick doesn't seem to be drumming up interest.

was hoping maybe to do a helton, livan, castillo for randy and freel type deal, but I doubt it.

Although there are no indications of improvement so far, buying Helton low now would be ahead of the curve.

I just moved Helton and Capuano for Dunn and Morris. It really hurt, even moreso because I like Cap. Still, Dunn and Helton were pretty equal in value last season, and this year Dunn is obviously off to a (much) better start. Oh well... not exactly selling low... just not selling high either.

I traded Mark Buehrle and Chad Cordero for him, hoping he will turn it around or be traded.

Buehrle and Cordero?? Hopefully have some deep pitching.. anyway, guys this is the definition of buying low. Yes, as with any buy low situation, there is some risk involved. However, this is Todd freaking Helton. Anyone think it's impossible for him to hit .330 with 15 HRs after the AS break? He's a high reward low risk guy, trade for him if you can.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

I've invested too much into Helton.

I'm starting to think that it is the roids... don't understand his 250 average when he usually bats 330. His 6 hrs when he usually has 15 by now.

Sticking with him and praying he turns it around. His buddy, Wilson is right now :-o

I have him in four leagues -- not on purpose, but that is a story for another day.

I am really debating what to do with him. I have him delgado, nick johnson. Im sitting helton for now. but I am toying with trading him and keeping niock and delgado.

anyone think it is silly to offer helton, a. jones and castillo (I have polanco, biggio) for figgins and miggy? It is the ultimate conundrum, because everyone can just lowball you for him right now.
