Todd Helton steroids or no steroids?

Postby AussieDodger » Tue Jun 19, 2007 6:07 pm

He kept his exceptional eye for walks/OBP etc , but his power is way ,way down.
The thing that makes me suspicious is that he had "intestinal parasites" just like Jason Giambi had when he came off the juice.
I don't think the humidor would do that much to someones home run record.
This year , he's not hurt , he's not that old (33) and he's hit a measily 6 HR and only 24 XB hits.
What do you guys think?

I'd say theres a 65% chance he did. Both he and Larry Walker posted some pretty impressive numbers for a while in Colorado. Maybe a lot of that power had something to do with roids as well as the thin air.

I'd guess not. Not for any particular reason though

I suppose the decline in production might indicate it.
Honestly, I've lost all interest in the "who did steroids" conversation.

Exactly. I could care less about whether or not he did it. I don't know much about him besides he's a good baseball player and he seems like a nice enough guy so I'm not going to accuse him of anything.

I think he is a nice guy too , and I hope I'm wrong. I was just curious because I drafted him in a keeper league last year expecting a rebound and got an "enormous" 15 HR and .880 OPS out of him. During which time he got "intestinal parasites" and lost a lot of weight. I still have him and to be honest , I don't know what to do with him or who to deal him for. The sight of a 6 in his HR column is not the most fun to look at. :C

I think that he did although it doesn't bother me if he or anyone else did for that matter.

How did you arrive at 65%? Is that based on something or just out of your ass?

I hope you didn't draft him too high with it being a keeper league.
