Helton-to-Boston Talks are Off from

The Colorado Rockies announced Monday night that trade talks with the Red Sox about a possible deal that would have sent Helton to Boston have ended and “there will be no further discussions.”

“This is not a trade that we were anxious to complete, but we are always exploring ways to improve our team,” Rockies owner Charlie Monfort said in a statement. “Discussions like these regarding a player of Todd’s talent and character are never easy, and it’s not surprising we were not able to reach an agreement.

“Todd has been and will continue to be an important part of our franchise, and we can’t wait to see him with the rest of the Rockies in Tucson,” when the team reports to spring training in Arizona next month.

So for now, Opening Day will be a happy moment for me watching number 17 trot out to first base.
