It was interesting to notice this change in the lineup after seeing Helton in the 3-hole for so many years. Atkins hitting third tonight with Holliday hitting cleanup. It will be interesting to see if this continues or whether it's just short term thing given Helton's poor numbers since the break. Could be a lot of RBI opps for him if Atkins and Holliday continue to hit well.

Something will happen. If the Rockies want to contend, they need to move that contract. Some team will be willing to take a chance on Helton; the Rox may need to pay some salary, but a change of scenery could benefit Helton.
