The easiest player to pick was Todd Helton, who is, without a doubt, the best player on this team.

The Rockies short existence is the biggest factor to why this team isn't very good compared to the other teams. Most of the newer teams are at a disadvantage. 

Teams that formed at the beginning of the National and American Leagues obviously have an advantage, due to their longevity.  

Not much else to say about this team. All in all, not one of the better all-time teams.
