Helton's salary was an albatross around this team's neck for the past 3-4 years. We should finally be able to recoup some depth with his money gone, although honestly they're still going to be paying his contract for some ungodly 20 years or something. How O'Dowd signed that deal and is still around, I don't get that one either. The Rockies pride themselves about being smart, precise, and calculated and then they hamstring the team with that one. Weird.
What was Helton's contract again?
