TODD HELTON RUMORS & GOSSIP

Rockies have figured out pitching and defense, and it has them in first place

Common wisdom holds that for the Colorado Rockies to excel while playing home games at mile-high Coors Field, they have to lead the Major Leagues in runs scored. They have to out-bash every other team and win a bunch of 10-9 games on their way to a 900-run season that eases the impact of a pitching staff full of bloated ERAs.But as of Sunday, Colorado is 41-24, with the best record...

One-on-one with Todd Helton

Todd Helton is the Colorado Rockies. He’s the only player in franchise history with his number retired (apologies to Jackie Robinson, but he never played in Colorado). He is the best “receiver of the baseball” Jim Tracy has ever seen. He’s funny. He respects the game. And, he knows it was his responsibility to give back to the game. His numbers are Hall of Fame worthy, and...

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...

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...
