Todd Helton...starting to turn it around?

Postby NikkiSixx » Thu Jun 15, 2006 5:32 pm

Over the last 6 games Todd Helton has put up numbers that look like this...


10/23 hitting, with 7 walks (.435 avg., .567 obp.), 10 runs scored, 2 HR's, 10 RBI's, and has only struck out twice.


That is pretty impressive...



Helton was arguably the biggest bust in the first half of last year, but was also arguably the best hitter in baseball in the 2nd half. Do you think he is beginning to make that 2nd half comeback he made last year? This could be a great buy low oppurtunity for Helton, if you can still get him low, there very well could Helton owners thinking the exact same thing I am. I couldnt be happier with Helton over the last week, and I think he could be a top 10 hitter the rest of the way. ;-D

Arguably the best hitter of my lifetime 35years, You know he is turning it around. This guy is a ballplayer...i picked him off the wire in two leagues (owned Pujols in both), and am smiling ear to ear....He is a sure bet.

He has gotten on base 10 out of his last 11 plate apperances (the one he didn't was a sac fly RBI)

I think he has turned a corner, and think he is fine for the rest of the way!

Like acs said though, don't expect huge power numbers. Somewhere in the 20s in HRs probably.

I think you can expect his final numbers to be what they were last year at the very least.

15 Hrs from a round 3-5 1b...that is great value for all the Helton believers that drafted hin round 3-5. What happened to all those people saying he would hit 340 with 25+ HRs because of his "Great" second half last season? Where oh where has the power gone? Possibly the same place Tex's and Michael Young's and Beltre's have.

so do you just accuse any player in a power slump of using roids?

I still think 25 homers is a very realistic goal.
