36-year old lefty swinging 1B Todd Helton finished 13th in the voting for the N.L. MVP Award. He played in 151 games for the Rockies last season and he was 177 for 544 (.325 avg, .904 OPS) with 79 runs scored, 15 homers and 86 RBIs. Helton has now played in 1,812 games in his 13 years with the Rockies and he is 2,134 for 6,506 (.328 avg, .994 OPS) with 1,222 runs scored, 325 homers, 1,202 RBIs and 36 stolen bases. The Rockies are glad that Helton appears to be over his back problems but he’s still unlikely to regain the power that once made him one of the most feared hitters in the N.L.
