Arenado traded to Cardinals

Recommended Posts

Good. It's about damn time Colorado made some moves. They need to sell off, badly. 

If I were them, I'd sell Arenando for literally anything. Just get his contract out of the way as they aren't going anywhere. I'd trade German Marquez for an absolute haul (hopefully to the white sox). I'd play the youngsters, see whaat I have, and then try to find a way to break the SP gap at Coors.

I wouldn't give Colorado much more than a lottery ticket for Arenado. He's good but teams could have had him when he was a free agent. It's like the Bears trading for DeShaun Watson.

Agreed. His contract makes him about even. Getting his contract off the books for Colorado is all that should matter for them. 

 

The one tough thing is that Nolan has an opt-out I think after this year. So any team trading for him has to consider that risk.

You can't give them much not only because of the contract but also the opt Outs. The opt outs mean if he is great he might opt out and if not you are stuck with the contract so you only get the downside of the big contract

The Arenado thing has seemingly dragged on for five years.  IMO They really missed the haul they were looking for when they didn't deal him right before they signed that large extension

eh.. knowing the cardinals and how cheap they've been this offseason, they will likely give up a good prospect for colorado to cover some money 😛

The only way the Cards take the entire contract is if the Rockies take back a bad contract (Carpenter, Mikolas). That's why the Mets deal fell apart.

The Arenado to the Cards thing is a rumor that happens basically every year and never materializes.  Highly, highly doubt something comes of it.

This time it feels real tho. That tweet is brand new... players are talking to each other, Arenando seems to be OK with voiding the no trade clause.

IMO this looks like it happens. It makes way too much sense for the Rockies... they are going NOWHERE looking up at Dodgers + Padres

It looks like Colorado is finally committing to a rebuild. 

Don’t rebuilds involve getting prospects back?
