Not only is Todd Helton still playing, but his backup is the even more undead Jason Giambi.
According to the Mayo Clinic website, a hip labral tear involves the ring of soft elastic tissue, called the labrum, that follows the outside rim of the socket of the hip joint. The labrum acts like a socket to hold the ball at the top of the thighbone (femur) in place.
Symptoms typically included hip pain and a "catching sensation" when sudden movements are made.
Looking at the Rockies BB-ref page... holy cats, that red-green bar graph looks horrible. Since the All-Star break they're 5-16 and have a team ERA of 6.51. They are 9-22 in blowouts, and three of their blowout wins somehow came on three straight days (May 30-June 1 - only two were against the Astros).
A catching sensation? I know Wilin Rosario has been good this year, but he still looks like, at best, the next Miguel Olivo.
According to BBRef's WAR, their best player is Matt Belisle. Ouch.
Cuddyer is the highest-paid Rockie this year.
BBRef's WAR is useless. Carlos Gonzalez and Dexter Fowler are both having very good seasons, even if BBref has them an inch behind Belisle.
Still, something seems wrong with the Rockies have a starting 1B who hasn't hit more than 20 HR in a season in 8 years.
I never noticed the "positional starters" page before.
I know Wilin Rosario has been good this year, but he still looks like, at best, the next Miguel Olivo.
I believe he's actually tied with Jorge de la Rosa, who hasn't pitched in a game this year.
If Helton doesn't make it back, we may have seen the end of Vlad, Abreu, Damon, & Helton all in one season--all fringe HOFers (though none of them are officially retired yet.
Moyer's ERA+ would make him the 3rd best member of that rotation. Yowsa.
I guess I never really though of Vlad as a guy that would sail in, but man I forgot his numbers were that good.
In the eyes of the voters, Vlad's .318 average, big power edge, 200 hit seasons, and MVP award (and several other top 10 finishes) will give him a big leg up over Abreu's candidacy.
