40 year old Todd Helton will not be returning to the Rockies next season, as he has announced that he will be retiring at the end of the season. Helton has had a good career, and has a "shot" to make the Hall of Fame.
So, do I think Helton will get into the Hall of Fame? I honestly believe that it's up to the voting, and who's nominated on a year to year basis. In weaker ballots, yes I think Helton would be voted in. In stronger ballots, I think he wouldn't. But, his .317 career batting average has me sold. I think he should be in the hall.
