What's Up With Todd Helton??

Slighty off topic, but still relevant and somewhat interesting.... About a year ago, I saw an article on the impact of park normalization on stats. They used Mike Sweeney and Todd Helton as the test case. To make a long story short, put Helton in KC and you have Mike Sweeney. Sweeney in Coors is Helton. The normalized numbers were amazingly close.

Sweeney has always put up great numbers...he's just always getting hurt.

However if he is gettin old and starting to slump then it could be over for him. I don't know what to say really. Personally I would try to trade him if you got him while he still has enough value.

if you did this last year, it was an incredibly regrettable move.

He will still hit around .320


Exactly, he should be just fine this year.

Was Coors not as much of a hitters park in the first 1/3 of last season too? (Not sure how much weather affects it..)
