Surprised Arenado visit is not a subject here--to boo or to applaud


There are two sides to this. Wanting to leave a team that is managed at the top like the Rockies is not a surprise. Story and Gray probably feel the same way.

But Nolan signed a big contract and not long after, seemingly, was in contact with the Cardinals. Here:


“The last year or two, (Arenado) would send me videos when he was trying to get traded over here,” Wainwright said.

Let’s stop here for a second. Um … wow. That’s quite the revelation. Let’s not be naive and pretend things like that don’t happen, but it’s still a bit surprising to hear.

“He would say, ‘Hey, show this to Mo,’” Wainwright said. “And he would be, in the middle of the offseason, taking ground balls down the third-base line and doing his little jump throw from almost the dugout, making a perfect throw, one after another after another.”

“Mo,” of course, is the Cardinals president of baseball operations, John Mozeliak.


So where does Nolan stand in your mind?
