Somebody Talk To Todd!

Excerpts taken from Thomas Harding's piece on the Rockies official homepage.  
Rockies first baseman Todd Helton said his back and legs felt good after a three-day injury rehab assignment at Rookie-level Casper, but he hasn't heard from the club whether he'll be activated Tuesday.
Somebody talk to Todd!
He returned to Denver on Monday and met with doctors, but said he had yet to consult with the club about whether he will return for Tuesday's start of a key two-game series with the Giants at Coors Field.
Somebody talk to Todd!
Helton said the decision would come after a discussion with the team.
Seriously... Somebody talk to Todd!

Am I off base in thinking it's strange Helton hasn't had a conversation with Dan O'Dowd or Jim Tracy or Keith Dugger or Dinger or somebody with a little say in the Rockies organization?

He's your greatest player ever.  Communicate with him.

I can't believe they didn't have conversations right away last night or even early this morning.  I don't get it.  What's the hold up?
