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.

It was then reported that he would not require a trip to the DL. I held him...
