TODD HELTON RUMORS & GOSSIP

Colorado Rockies “what if”: Todd Helton

If you haven’t had a chance to read ESPN’s Baseball Tonight “What If” series, I highly recommend it; especially the Ken Griffey, Jr. special. Big names like Jayson Stark evaluate some pretty interesting things from baseball’s more recent history. Their work combined with the Colorado Rockies retiring Todd Helton’s number this week got me thinking about a different what...

Todd Helton’s ceremonial weekend was bittersweet

To begin, two important confessions: First, I am a fan of the Colorado Rockies. Despite their current record, perceived or actual ineptitude, or inability to win their own division, I will always cheer first, and loudest, for the Colorado Rockies. Second, I am a Todd Helton fan. Now that both of those truths are out in broad daylight, I offer the crux of this very column: Something...

Watch: Helton’s retirement ceremony

Not much to say here, other than that Sunday was the best day of Rockies baseball in a long time. #Retire17 went off without a hitch, people heard Todd Helton speak in public about how he was glad he spent his entire career with the Rockies (wonder shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was paying attention), and oh yeah, the Rockies won both of their games against the Cincinnati Reds. Drew...

As Colorado Rockies kick off Todd Helton weekend, get ready for the local hatred

Todd Helton takes far too much criticism.Some things aren't meant to be understood.For years, when Todd Helton was in his prime, I thought that the only thing that would hold him back from Cooperstown was the perception from national writers who discounted his Coors Field numbers. As Helton aged, however, the critics weren't coming from that national writers, but instead...

Todd Helton also thinks watching baseball is boring

Todd Helton loves Shark Week but who doesn’t? Helton joined the Press Box this morning to discuss a range of topics from Elk meat to shark week. He admitted to watching a few innings of Rockies baseball (bliss his soul) and that playing baseball is much better than watching baseball. It sounds like retirement has been good to the Toddfather. Take a listen. For complete...

Five best moments from Todd Helton's final five seasons

When I worked for the Rockies, we spent a lot of time talking about Todd Helton’s hall of fame candidacy. When Helton recovered from a hairy intestinal issue in 2006 to post the seventh four-win (or better) campaign of his career in 2007, the going thought was that if he was able to just to do that a few more times, he would be a shoo-in for the Hall. He stood at 51.1 WAR through...

Todd Helton will quietly finish his career next month.The next month will probably go just as Todd Helton would have planned it.As Denver and the rest of Colorado turn their eyes towards the Broncos and their chances of winning the Super Bowl, the Colorado Rockies will play out the final string of games with barely any fanfare.
