While I would love to see him manning the hot corner in STL with that defense...Buyer beware on Nolan Arenado for 3 reasons. |
1. .265/323./.476... those are his career splits away from Coors. At Coors, he is a .324/.380/.615 hitter. Those are DRASTIC splits from a big sample size.
2. That contract. Yes, it's big dollars (234 Mil left) but that is not what scares me because we all know the Cards have money. His opt out in 2 years scares me. We give up all these prospects for a guy that ends up leaving town.
3. Where does Carpenter play? If we can't get rid of him, will Mo really be able to stomach him sitting on the bench making $18 mil for the next couple years?
