The Coors Field numbers are ridiculous.

Should Rockies be banned from the HOF?


There's a strong argument to be made.
strong argument to be made that they are already. Helton would already be in if he had played me anywhere else, right?


Go look at his road/home splits. They aren't even close. One might say they aren't in the same ballpark.
Wow just looked them up...his average road 162 games was .276 21 HR 80 RBI, which is a nice player. Hall of very good, Josh Reddickesque.

His avg home 162: .345 32 HR 122 RBI!!!

That's for sure why the voters are keeping him out right? He was never linked to Roids.

Alvarez might hit one to Boulder.

Doh, if he were playing...

He will when he pinch hits for the pitcher.

As much as I'd like to see him hit one 500' I can understand where they're keeping him out of LF. I was fully expecting that Brantley double to be caught by the CF but the gaps are yuge.

Who knows why they aren't voting him in. Voters are idiots. See Elvis, Fat.

And for the record I don't think Helton belongs in.

Yeah that's why I'm not worried about the knee.

I never expected him to play OF in Coors.

I don't mind this debut for your keeding. Coors is a hard place for any pitcher. Kid flashed some good stuff. Looking forward to what he can do in MMP on sunday

I love Berkman both as a player and as a human but I think he cost himself a shot @ the HOF because he didn't take better care of himself physically.

I think the bouncing from team to team towards the end of his career cost him.

Plenty of fatties in the HOF
I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

He definitely needed a couple of more years for counting stats to really kick in. I think there is a good argument for him. But like 5 total votes? Thats a joke.
Harry Dunne

True. But Berkman wasn't so much a fatty as he was someone that was renowned for not taking conditioning & nutrition seriously and he really fell off a cliff there at the end. He had a great career and I'm sure he has no regretsbut man 1 or 2 more good/healthy seasons would have probably gotten him in.

Compare Pumas and Edgar Martinez' numbers. Shockingly similar iirc

1st pitch should have been called strike since he "swung"

Come away with a lead after this inning and it's a huge win. I fully expect to be down 2 runs though

Walking in a run pisses me off to no end. I understand it's only one run but make them earn their runs at least.
