Does Todd Helton belong in the Hall of Fame?
We were having this discussion in chat, Does Todd Helton belong in the Hall of Fame? Will he get in?
He had 5 consecutive season with an OPS over 1.000. He also had 10 straight season with a .300+ average with 9 of those 10 being above .315. He doesn't have the counting stats to get in, (351 HR and 2,400 hits) but he ranks 51st all time in career batting average, 18th in on base percentage, 28th in slugging percentage, and 15th in OPS. His counting stats will hurt him in addition to playing in the steroid era in Coors Field.
