Rockies Win & Win & Win & Then Win The Pennant!

Mendoza 5280 says it perfectly:
"... if we're tied or losing and there are 2 outs and runners in scoring position and Rockies are at home and it's the later innings, Torrealba is who you want up. He's one of those rare players who you can really see getting better if the crowd is behind him; it's quite a thing to witness in baseball actually because it's rare (more of a football thing perhaps). I could care less if the stats agree or not, Torrealba's the man in that situation...

"However, if it's a HUGE
MUST WIN game (like 9th inning in the 7th game of World Series or a wild-card tiebreaker) you probably couldn't go wrong with Helton. Helton's got the ultra-rare 'super-star' gene which allows him to steal your breath away in an ultra-rare 'must hit or lose' situation by getting a hit that no one sees coming, except of course Helton."
Check out Mendoza 5280's Rockies baseball blog here. He saw this coming seven months ago during Spring Training.

Congratulations Colorado Rockies, Rockies fans, and Todd Helton. Your dream begins now!

My hat is off to the Rockies and I truly hope that they win the World Series.
As a die-hard Yankees fan, I remmber the days in the late 90's and early 2000 when we could always count on a Derek Jeter hit in a "clutch" situation.
Helton is a winner and as Gene Hackman said in The Replacements "Winners always want the ball when the game is on the line".
Go Rockies over the Indians after the tribe ruins the hopes of those !@$#! chowder-heads in Bum-town...
