Around The Web: Stadium Upgrades, TV Contract, HGH Testing, Quotes Of The Year

Todd Helton – One last ride

Colorado Rockies veteran first baseman Todd Helton has decided to make 2013 his last ride. Helton had a horrendous 2012 that was riddled with injuries, a bothersome hip and a torn labrum. That’s a lot to comeback from regardless of age, let alone when you’re 39 like he is. Even so he’s still got that desire to play and wants to give it one last go round. “I am back baby...
