If anybody on the Rockies deserves a World Series ring, it's Todd Helton.

But baseball is not a game of fairness, and at age 38, the best player in franchise history is stuck on what could go down as the worst team in franchise history.

Would he like to be traded to a bona fide contender?

"No," Helton replied Thursday, without a second of hesitation. "I'm committed. I'm here."
