The Tracker has been away for a few days and we've got a lot of catching up to do. Let's get to the trots! Home Run of the Day: Todd Helton, Colorado Rockies - 31.54 seconds [video] We'll talk about Helton's home run separately. In the meantime, enjoy the Manny Ramirez home run above. With continued thanks to Manny Does Taiwan, this was Manny's sixth home run in Taiwan. His trot was a bit tough to clock thanks to the camera angle used at home plate, but the trot clocked in at no slower than 26.92 seconds (and possibly even 26.3 seconds). That's a quick one for Manny. Slowest Trot: Todd Helton, Colorado Rockies - 31.54 seconds [video] Again, we'll talk about this trot in a separate post. We would be remiss if we didn't mention that David Ortiz had a 28.72 second trot on Tuesday night. That would be the slowest trot of the year (with five of the ten slowest in Papi's name) if not for what Helton did Thursday afternoon. Quickes...
