Protection for Helton

Postby TriplePlay » Thu Dec 16, 2004 1:57 am

With the Rockies team looking like its going to be real awful again, how does everyone think Helton will do numbers wise. Obviously playing in Coors is always good for hitters, but now that it looks like hes going to have no protection, how will this affect him? Who is going to protect him? Or will he constantly be pitched around?

Isn't Preston Wilson still there? He's decent protection if he can stay healthy.

There is talk that the Rockies are getting ready to put Helton on waivers...

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

What is his contract like? More than what Sexson and Delgado will get?

You think they're looking at Mo Vaughn as a possible replacement??

Either way Helton is good for .335-30-100-100+

He's really consistant and i'd take him any day on my team

Yanks would pick him up if they do that. Or else the Mets. Two high payroll teams both looking for a 1B. If Delgado wants $16M per, Helton's $16.6M per would be a much better gamble.

I'm sure there would be more than a couple teams interested if that happens.

What do you guys think his stats would look like outside of Coors field?
