Helton - What's Up?

Postby bobbing_headz » Fri Jun 01, 2007 11:58 pm

I know Helton has been slumping a bit but after looking at his stats he's really sucking. Counting tonights game (although it isn't quite over) he has only 2 measly RBIs in his last 18. Heck even Taveras has more than double that and he bats lead-off. What's up? Is this just the product of a slumping Rockies offense or should I be concerned about Helton?

the dearth of rbis has coincided with many hitless games during that span. he wasn't going to hit near .400 forever, so i suspect this was him just coming down back to earth. HOWEVER, i still believe he is going to have a huge comeback year so i expect him to pick it up again, hitting for a high avg unlike 2006.

In leagues that have OPS and K's as categories he is VERY valuable, but yes the HR's are not coming back.

I have K's as well which is nice..but my bench spot has the same amount of points he does and I could be getting mauer

Yeah, Helton is only batting .300 since his torrid April. What a bum. ;-7

It's not so much about the HRs that I care about, I knew he wasn't gonna hit more than 15 maybe 20. I'm wondering where the RBIs and even runs have gone? I mean right now he's essentially a one-tool player, he gets a high average. Frankly I don't want the next Freddy Sanchez as my first basemen.

Hmmm. Pretty interesting.

Helton is only on pace for 14 HR's, 67 runs, and 79 RBI's.

I had a feeling about the HR's, but I was surprised to see how low his pace is for runs and RBI's. Hopefully he will score more as Atkins picks it up.

That might be the problem. Without the 2006 Atkins behind him he may not be getting many pitches to hit. How do his walk numbers look?

Very good overall (on pace for 120) though down a bit recently (only 2 in the past week).
