Coors Hrs at record low pace...Helton

Postby TheYanks04 » Tue Jul 05, 2005 12:15 pm

Rotoworld:
Todd Helton has just three home runs at Coors Field this year, and the homer pace in Colorado is on track to be at an all-time low.
The Rockies are on pace to hit just 85 homers at Coors, which is 12 behind the all-time low of 97 set in 2002. It could be weather related, or the fact that balls are being stored in a humidor, but it could also be the fact that the Rockies just aren't very good this year.


...OR it could be some of that AND the fact that Helton is a roid boy.

...

seriously though, are there any numbers about how visiting teams are hitting homers at Coors? this would give us a better idea of whether the low rate of home run production was due to some weather- or field-related issue rather than just the general ineptitude of the rockies this year.

How about, the Rockies just plain suck at hitting? Seems like a more reasonable answer... Helton was never really a huge HR hitter anyways, usually 30-35.

I'd love to be able to not have to hear the word 'steroid' on the boards unless somebody is actually caught, a la Alex Sanches. All this speculation only makes you look unintelligent, and annoying. So please, unless it's on the front page of the Sports Section of every major newspaper across America and we have some form of proof, let us remove the S-word from our vocabularies. It will be a much better place to hang out, here at the Cafe. No?

Wait til he's no longer a Yankee. ;-D And GF's first post was classic too. ;-D

As to the real issue -- before this devolves into a Yankee/Red Sox slash steroid mess, the Rockies just suck this year. They don't really have any prototypical power hitters outside of Wilson and Helton, who is obviously slumping.
