Todd Finally Gets It!

Can't tell you how happy I was to read this piece from Troy Renck the other day.

Todd Helton learns vital lesson from last year

In the article, Todd Helton admits that...

"I had nothing left at the end of the year."  
That's not much of an admission really.  Everybody watching could see Helton was laboring, particularly at the plate.
"That was partly my fault. I should have kept myself in a little better shape. You just get worn down from playing so much. I want to have more left in the tank when the games matter."
Todd Helton is a lot of things: a leader, gold glover, all-star, batting champion, potential hall of famer, all around nice guy.  Another thing he is, that may even surpass all of those descriptions, is stubborn.
