    as for your question of whether todd helton is hof material. I say no . he's pretty good but not spectacular. as for your question of what you would change if you were commissioner of baseball. my first rule would be that the batter has10 seconds to prepare yourself for the first pitch. anything over the time would be called a strike. ifthe pitcher does not pitch in that time frame it would be called a ball. thanks john s
