Nitty Gritty Talk:
Second baseman Jamey Carroll is a slick fielder and can turn over the double play with the best of big leaguers. Relief pitcher Brian Fuentes is generally the first Colorado player to arrive and start his daily routine of workouts.
One of the best line drive hitters in the game, Todd Helton extended his streak of .300 plus seasons to nine straight 1998-2006. Although his .303 last season was his lowest since he hit .280 in 35 games in his first year with Colorado, 1997.
