2017-01-18 20:00:00 (link to chat)Ryan McMahon was just listed by Christopher Crawford as one of the 10 biggest prospect fallers from 2016. What's your take? Do you think he's going to be the Rockies long term answer at 1B - something they've been longing for since the days of Todd Helton or is he more likely nothing more than a Mark Reynolds lite?
(Truganini from CO)
It certainly wasn't a great season, but he played a full season in Double-A at 21. Too early to give up on him, and I think there's a good chance he's the starting first baseman in Colorado at some point in 2018. (Bret Sayre)
2016-11-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)Is Ryan McMahon the Rockies long term answer at 1B that they have been seeking since Todd Helton retired?
(matzabal from CO)
The Ryan McMahon bandwagon came to an abrupt halt this past season. Too early to write-off, and Coors does help a lot if he gets there, but he might just be a guy instead of a Guy. (Jarrett Seidler)
2015-06-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's up RJ. How high are you on guys like ( and specifically) Anthony Alford? Is there any track record of extremely athletic, baseball limited guys becoming truly successful? Or do most of them just because lost heart throbs? Thanks
(ssauve25 from SF)
1) I don't have any opinion on Alford.
2) Yeah, absolutely. I don't know how their stories compare to Alford, but Carl Crawford, Todd Helton, Gabe Gross, Tony Gwynn, etc. were all multi-sport guys. Teams like multi-sport guys because it's a sign of greater athleticism and/or competitiveness. Heck, I just read last week about how the Red Sox became sold on Jacoby Ellsbury based on him dunking the ball during a random basketball session.
3) I would guess most of his ilk bust, but that's true of all prospects. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-12-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)Can you explain why Chase Headley wasnt taken in the first round? The guy was an all state two sport athlete in high school, in college he broke Todd Helton's record for walks in a season at the U of Tennessee. Do GM's not understand that although not one of the five tools a good eye at the plate, i.e, drawing walks is a key component to a truly great and complete player?
(Daniel F from NY)
Headley certainly had outstanding credentials, Daniel F, but one possible concern at the time was his injury history. He had knee surgery during his sophomore year at Tennessee, and that may have dimmed his otherwise soaring draft stock. I'm sure that plenty of GMs and draft decision-makers regret passing on him now. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-10-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Scott Rolen looking to play another yeat? It seems like he retirement announcement was imminent, but nothing happened. What should the Reds expect from Todd Frazier next year?
(Tommy from Flowmont)
I don't know, but I hope not. I drafted Rolen in a Scoresheet league when he was in A-ball, so I have fond memories of him coming up with the Phillies back in the day. It's tough to see his career crumble at the end. Same with Todd Helton. Or Brian Giles a few years ago. As for Frazier, he'll be as good as Dusty Baker lets him be. (Geoff Young)
2011-04-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will Carlos Pena be making a comeback from his thumb injury soon? Batting .182 with 5 RBI's isn't exactly helping my team.Any suggestions for a commonly available fill-in at 1st for the time being?
(NightmareRec0n from Boston)
Michael Street just wrote about a few today for Value Picks. Todd Helton, Kila, LaPorta, and others all seem to be available in most mixed league formats. (Marc Normandin)
2009-08-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Todd Helton -- Hall of Famer?
(Dan from Boulder)
See Jay Jaffe's piece on this today. My personal perspective is that he is and probably should be. Here's my view of park effects: Does every player who goes into Coors Field turn into Todd Helton? Does every player who goes into Fenway become Jim Rice? Taking advantage of your home park is a skill. Sure, we should take this stuff into account, but we shouldn't be totally dismissive. (Steven Goldman)
2008-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are there any good comps to Todd Helton's back surgery and rehab? The man knows his strike zone, but is there a chance any of that power returns?
(jlewando from dc)
Rafael Furcal is a pretty good one. Hardly the same player or type, but showed that a player can come back to level pretty quickly. Helton's fast becoming Sean Casey, which isn't a bad thing, just not what he's being paid to be. (Will Carroll)
2008-08-15 15:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Ian Stewart maintains his success into next season? What does the move to 2b do to his value?
(shamah from NYC)
I don't think we'll be seeing Stewart stick at second; the experiment was fun, but Atkins is a bad third baseman, and any questions of who plays where will almost certainly have to wait on how Todd Helton's back comes along. Which is to say I think Dan O'Dowd's in the unhappy position of having to wait this out over the winter, but if there's one source of solace, it's that Stewart's for real, and will keep doing what he's doing. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-05-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are the chances that Todd Helton can hit the pace of his PFM projection the rest of the way (.309 95/16/82). He hasn't shown much power and the Rockies have fallen down around him too.
(davelamb from san leandro)
Well, I'm not too impressed with the forecast in the first place, so I'd look elsewhere for first base help. Carlos Pena is starting to pick it up again, for those who gave up on him early. I just slotted him back into my lineup after patching it up with Casey Kotchman for a time. (Marc Normandin)
2008-05-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is there any solution to the Mets' currently gaping hole at first base?
(Jessica from NYC)
I'd imagine that you could get Dmitri Young pretty cheaply. Todd Helton. Maybe even Adrian Gonzalez, although he's going to cost you a fortune. But quite a few of the teams that look like they might be selling have a viable option at first base. (Nate Silver)
2008-04-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Marc - In a 9X9 league heavily weighted towards all the hit categories, would you trade Justin Upton to get Todd Helton? Helton was a top 25 player in this league last year. Thanks!
(Jeff from Chicago)
That's the wrong guy to ask me about getting rid of. Upton is a beast. What are the cats? (Marc Normandin)

2009-10-12 15:00:00Phillies/Rockies Playoffs RoundtableI'm always surprised to see that Todd Helton has never pitched in a mop up game. I'm pretty sure he's still the career saves leader at Tennessee, and if he never swung a bit, he would have still been a late-first round guy as one of those college relievers who can make quickly type.

2009-10-12 15:00:00Phillies/Rockies Playoffs RoundtablePeyton (Indy): Does Todd Helton get in the HoF?

I took a look at this question this summer at
http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=9369
and
http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=9381.

When it finally arrives, Helton's Cooperstown candidacy will be built upon numbers compiled under the most optimal conditions ever afforded a hitter over an extended period of time. Once we correct for that using advance metrics like WARP and EqA which adjust for the park and league context, it's clear he makes for a decidedly below-average candidate at present, at least according to JAWS, and having just turned 36, he ain't getting any younger.

He'll hit the ballot at the tail end of a crowded cohort, most of the members of whom will have higher home run totals compiled under less favorable conditions, for one thing.

(Jay Jaffe)
2009-10-12 15:00:00Phillies/Rockies Playoffs RoundtablePeyton (Indy): Does Todd Helton get in the HoF?

Jay probably has a better answer to this, but my feeling is that he should. As I wrote in a recent You Could Look It Up, being able to take advantage of pre-humidor Coors to the extent that he did seems to me to be a legitimate skill. (Steven Goldman)
