For a five year period, Todd Helton was not just the best player for the Colorado Rockies but was one of the best players in the game. “The Toddfather” had five seasons where he never batted below .325, hit lower than 40 Home Runs, received MVP Votes and had an OPS less than one. Helton would also win four Silver Sluggers and three Gold Gloves. His 2000 Season would see him win the Batting, On Base Percentage and Slugging Title.
While Todd Helton would not have a stretch like that again, Helton was certainly a great player throughout his time in Baseball, which by the way was all with Colorado. Helton retired with 369 Home Runs, 1,406 Runs Batted In, and an impressive career 3/4/5 Slash Line of .316/.414/.539. Our real question now is whether the Hall of Fame will induct him. There are certainly a lot of people in Colorado who think that should happen!
