As Todd Helton goes, so go the Rockies. The 2007 and '09 versions of the veteran first baseman played in at least 150 games, batted above .300 with .400 OBPs and slugging percentages approaching .500. In both those years, the Rockies won the NL wild-card race. In 2008 and '10, Helton showed his age and the effects of back problems, missing at least 40 games in each year, batting under .270 and slugging under .400, and the Rockies missed the postseason. If Helton's body won't let him be That Guy, the team has to find a first base replacement. Jason Giambi is back, although he, too, has lost much of the power he had in his heyday. Ty Wigginton, who mashes lefties, can serve as one half of a platoon, and the team could use Jonathan Herrera, who has some on-base skills, to form the other half, with Ian Stewart playing some first and Herrera at third. The eventual solution could even involve a trade. Loyalty is powerful, but hits and home runs are more so, and the Rockies have made it clear over the past four seasons that they need productivity from their first baseman to compete.
