Helton's Goatee Pays Off Bigtime

While playoff hopes are pretty much nil at this point, yesterday's double-header sweep over the Dodgers was pretty sweet. A picture perfect September afternoon for Game 1 (myself, Deathtruck, and Sammy Winder in attendance) followed up by perhaps the most dramatic game of the year for the Rox. Who doesn't like to see Helton get a little Sept drama? It was a complete team effort with major contributions from Holliday and Spilly, but Helton stole the spotlight with his 2-out, 1-2 count homerun off of the masterful Takashi (I drink to that) Saito. Todd's stage dive into home plate might need a little work, but his clutchness down the stretch has been undeniable.

Let's get another win tonight. Fogg has his work cut out for him tonight against Brad Penny.
Go Rox!!

Todd gettin' pumped! Did he even touch homeplate?
Maybe if they could beat the Pirates or the Marlins, the playoffs would be a certainty.
