The Denver Post is reporting that the Colorado Rockies and Boston Red Sox are discussing a possible trade involving Todd Helton.

According to the article, Helton -- who has six years and $90.1 million remaining on his contract -- has a no-trade clause, but would consider waiving it to go to Boston.

The Boston Herald reports that the Rockies are driving the trade talks.

Helton's power, which made him such a valuable fantasy player at the beginning of the decade, has disappeared. He has hit just 35 homers over the past two seasons. Prior to 2005, Helton managed at least 30 HRs in six straight seasons.

In 2006, he hit .302, his lowest average since he was a rookie in 1997.
