Helton has Sunday off

Rockies manager Jim Tracy looked at the schedule and saw, well, a lot of games. this is the seventh game of an 11-game, 11-day road trip. when the Rockies dome home, they play three with the Mariners before finally getting their first day off since May 28. So, Sunday is as good a time as any to sit first baseman Todd Helton, who was 1-for-6 in the first two games with the Cardinals. Sunday is Helton’s first game out of the starting lineup since May 17 at Pittsburgh.

Here are Sunday’s lineups:

Rockies

Dexter Fowler, CF

Clint Barmes, 2B

Brad Hawpe, RF

Garrett Atkins, 1B

Ian Stewart, 3B

Carlos Gonzalez, LF

Troy Tulowitzki, SS

Paul Phillips, C

Ubaldo Jimenez, P

Cardinals

Skip Schumaker, 2B

Colby Rasmus, CF

Albert Pujols, 1B

Rick Ankiel, RF

Chris Duncan, LF

Yadier Molina, C

Joe Thurston, 3B

Brendan Ryan, SS

Joel Piniero, P

Thomas- With Spilborghs getting some serious bench time, and Gonzalez looking good in the outfield (thus far), what are the chances that they’re going to trade Spilborghs? I also read an article about including Brad Hawpe in a deal. Would the Rockies really give away one of their best sluggers plus a favorite in Colorado?
