    I loved Larry Walker but I don't view him as that important to have his number retired. If anyone it would be Helton for this franchise to date and that may still happen at some point.

    2 game win streak now and solid pitching.

    I know nobody wants to hear it but .500 would be an improvement for this team.

    How bout John Axford coming in and getting the save with back to back strike outs! Hopefully are bats wake up against lowly SF who just swept LA!

    They retired Heltons number last year against the Reds. Tulo or Arenado are the next possible choices if they finish with Colorado.

    At one point I would've put Cargo up there. But he has been aweful at the plate the past few years. And can't stay healthy.

    I may be crazy on this but wouldn't we put Vinny Castilla in a prestige spot before Larry Walker? He may have been a little smaller in terms of stats but didn't he play longer for the Rockies?

    Walker played 1-2 more seasons and has better #s

    Well the Rockies officially can't dip below .500 during April.

    Getting close to time to find out what May brings.

    Was just coming to say the same thing. It's time to dump this fool. His opening day start was a fluke.

    I did not say retired I said no longer issued. There is a galaxy of difference between the two. During his time at Blake street he was;
    4 All-Star (1997–1999, 2001)
    NL MVP (1997)
    5 Gold Glove Award ( 1997–1999, 2001, 2002)
    2 Silver Slugger Award (1997, 1999)
    3 NL batting champion (1998, 1999, 2001)
    NL home run champion (1997)
    NL East Wild Card winner

    Pretty impressive nine year run to me.

    There is not a galaxy of difference between the two at all. No longer issued might as well be retired. It may not be hung up in a plaque on just no longer issued. But why discontinue issuing it and not retiring it? Seems like a waste to me.

    Also not arguing he was a stellar Rockie. But obviously the organization doesn't agree it's worth eliminating his number from options.

    To me if you aren't in the hall you shouldn't have your number retired. That stuff is reserved for legends.
