Rockies must trade Helton to the Yankees ASAP.
Because then we can have our own enjoyable curse that will result in the same kind of scene played out in Boston last night.
Helton goes to the Yankees and plays another 10 years ... eventually going into the HOF in (Yankee) pinstripes and 3 championships + 1 WSMVP in tow. Just to add to it (and not break our usual trade policy) lets agree to pay half of Helton's salary for the duration of his remaining contract.
We get Kevin Brown ( It has to be a Goat from last night, Vasquez has similar Goat status, but we can't risk getting a good player for Helton ..or no curse ).
Kevin Brown would make Bret Saberhagens tenure seem like a eternity.
K. Brown is about 40 and a 100% guaranteed major injury waiting to happen before the all star votes are even halfway to completion.
IF Brown pitches well, Hurdle can instruct C.Johnson to start letting the hitters know what is coming .... and if all else fails, give K.Brown a corked bat without his knowledge and then tip off the opposing manager.
Instead of "writing off the next few years to gear up for a run" lets have some fun that will result in the genesis of a Curse.
We can do better than a Goat Curse. The Broncos, Nuggets, and Avs can satiate our hunger for winning while we get the whole curse thing rolling.
Lets do it for the local Ballteam. WS champs sometime after 2088 in the old and revered Coors - Rocky's Auto Emire - Pleasures Field
In 100 years it will allow you to die blissfully happy.
( if medicaid covers a cloned self for spare parts, most of us should make it, just watch out for speeding buses and strip club bouncers ).
I just thought of something unrelated .... i bet Nomar is pissed right about now and feeling awfully cursed. Hopefully if the Sox win it all they'll state a belief that the curse went with Nomar to the Cubs.
Sorry Cubs fans .... now you got 2 curses.
