Never thought we would say the words Bench and Helton in the same sentence this year. Wow how that mighty have fallen.

I finally bit the bullet completely. I traded Helton in one league about 2 weeks ago for Soriano, and last night, in another league, waived Lowell and picked up Garret Atkins. Very disappointing :-/

Lowell may well turn things around, but given his history of poor 2nd halves combined with almost no recent signs of significant improvement, I decided to say bye bye, Mike. Only time will tell :-?

Jeez, who would ever do that? I'd deal Helton for Soriano if Helton was playing like he usually does. 8-o

I wouldn't. Soriano will hit 5 homers one week, then the next he will be something like 2-24 with 10 k's. Imagine if he hits the wall during your playoff week? Helton during his top 5 run was a monster, and consistant week to week production is too hard to pass up.
