It's not that Todd Helton, apparently, does a dead-on impersonation of Alan Embree's windup. It's that the article about the Rockies' possible interest in the free-agent lefty implies that that's as good a reason as any to sign the guy. Here I always thought of Helton as kind of a straight man type. I wonder if Todd's Embree is as good as Mark Grace's Mike Fetters.
Real news...real news...well, there isn't any. As a recent MLB.com mailbag indicates, the big questions about Colorado in '06 is where guys like Ryan Shealy, Omar Quintanilla, and Jorge Piedra are going to find playing time. Not exactly the sort of thing likely to cause sleepless nights.
That's it for this post, since I promised myself I wasn't going to pile on the Orioles any further.
