Todd Helton announces retirement following 2013 season

When the Colorado Rockies arrive to their spring training facility in Arizona next Februrary, they will do so without the greatest player in franchise history. After 17 major league seasons, Todd Helton confirmed to the Denver Post’s Troy Renck on Saturday night that he’s set to retire following the 2013 season.

“Yes, this is it. It just seems like it’s time. It’s a young man’s game. I am 40 years old. I am looking forward to doing something else besides baseball. Whatever that may be. I am not sure yet,” said Helton, sitting next to his wife, Christy. “I am going to start a new chapter not only in my life but our lives. It will be different. It will be difficult, but it will be exciting.”

Helton, 40, hasn’t been the same sbobet player since 2008. That’s when his chronic back issues really began to take hold. It’s those back issues that have sapped the majority of Helton’s strength and productivity, but it has been through sheer will and determination that the five-time All-Star has been able to extend his career even to this point.

Pirates will enter September in first place after upending Cardinals

Saturday was a banner day for the Pittsburgh Pirates. It started with general manager Neal Huntington bringing in some reinforcements by acquiring first baseman Justin Morneau from the Minnesota Twins. And then it ended with Pittsburgh all alone in first place in the National League Central after knocking off the St. Louis Cardinals, 7-1.

Perhaps inspired by another Canadian (Morneau) joining the team, Russell Martin muscled up for the game’s biggest hit, a three-run homer in the third. He then spoke about the addition following the game.

From the Associated Press:

”Everybody knows we got better with the addition of Justin,” Martin said after the game. ”He’s an ex-MVP. He knows what he’s doing out there. He’s going to give you a productive at-bat and he lengthens the middle of the order.”

One person who will appreciate that is A.J. Burnett, but it really didn’t matter who was behind him on Friday. He was in full control, cruising through seven innings of four-hit ball to pick up his seventh win.

Ivan the Great: Following another uneven outing from C.C. Sabathia on Friday night, the New York Yankees were hoping for a quality performance from Ivan Nova in their quick turnaround game on Saturday afternoon. He gave them quality, and then some, throwing his first career complete game shutout in their 2-0 win over the Baltimore Orioles.

Nova gave up just three singles in the outing and one walk. He also hit two batters and struck out five while lowering his season ERA to 2.88. Needless to say, he’s quietly having a terrific season, but his August has been especially good (4-0, 2.07). Oh, and speaking of guys having terrific seasons, Robinson Cano was the Yankees lone source for offense with a solo home run and RBI double.
