Todd Helton can still swing it--every now and then.The Toby Keith song says it perfectly. "I ain't as good as I once was, but I'm as good once, as I ever was."No truer words could be spoken about Todd Helton. The former slugger with Hall of Fame credentials has been a disappointment in what is assumed to be his capstone season. With a batting average hovering around the Mendoza line, Helton's spot in the everyday lineup has been questioned by some of his most ardent supporters.In the 9th inning, Helton gave his fans another opportunity to remember what he used to do on such a regular basis. With a runner on and the Rockies down by two runs, Helton fouled off pitch after pitch from Dodgers closer Brandon League before launching a game-tying second deck blast. The home run tied him with Yogi Berra on the all-time home run list.The comeback was something that has eluded the Rockies for the last week of baseball. However, one thing that hasn't eluded the Rockie...

Fowler delivered for the Rockies on Saturday.It would figure that the Colorado Rockies would start the 10th inning with two outs before getting two runners on, when Dexter Fowler lined the first pitch he saw down the first base line, allowing Yorvit Torrealba to score from second base.The Rockies have had a tough week at the plate. Since Monday they have seemingly had runners on...
Colorado Rockies closer, Rafael Betancourt, has officially been placed on the DL. Rex Brothers will close in the interim. If you play in a legitimate roto league and have less than four closers, add him now.
I added Brothers to all my rosters minutes after Betancourt first left a game injured 11 days ago. It was then reported that he would not require a trip to the DL. I held him...
You can only pitch through pain for so long before something gives. It will either be your body or your talent. In this case, the Colorado Rockies and Rafael Betancourt did not want either to happen. So they placed him on the 15-day DL.
Betancourt goes on DL for.Rockoez. Brothers figures to close. Call up will be made Sunday.

Juan Nicasio has talent, but it is unrefined.Don't let the highs get too high and the lows get too low.That is a saying that most managers will utter to the press at least four times per season. For Walt Weiss and his Colorado Rockies, it was one of those nights. Unfortunately for those who cheer for the Rockies, it was a night when they had to remind themselves not to get too...
