Todd Helton For Oliver Perez - Take a Look

Todd Helton will turn 37 during the 2010 season.
He is due $16.6M in 2010, 19.1M in 2011,  plus a 4.6M buyout in 2012.
TOTAL DUE IS $40.3M over 2 years
Oliver Perez is due $12M for 2010 and 2011 totaling $24M over the 2 years period.

Extra cost to Mets is $16.3M over 2 years ($8.15M per year).

In 2009, Helton hit .325 , OBP- .416, OPS - .904, 15 HR and 86 RBI.

I feel that Oliver Perez will not make the starting rotation next year.  So basically with the salary exchange, we'd be paying $8.15M next year for a 1st baseman.  The question is does Helton have enough left in the tank to help the Mets.

Would the Mets/Rockies be interested in structuring some kind of deal around these players?
