We got a blockbuster trade in the MLB happening. Nolan Arenado is arguably one of the best third basemen in the entire MLB. With that being said, his trade availability was very much in the question. Arenado has been traded to the St. Louis Cardinals in a mega deal.
Names possibly going to Rockies include LHP Austin Gomber, 1B Luken Baker, OF Jhon Torres. Return also might include RHP Jake Woodford or RHP Angel Rondón. Exact package not confirmed. https://t.co/QJaMyyxLwP

As a result of the trade, the Cardinals are getting a superstar at the third base position. Cardinal nation will be super excited for this trade, Not only is Arenado stellar on defense, he is rock solid at hitting too. The Rockies are sending significant cash with the trade.
Arenado’s contract is a bit on the steep side. With his amount of talent, Arenado is well worth his contract value. He will thrive with his new team and make a big difference real quick. This is up there with the Mookie Betts trade. He now leaves a team that is going nowhere to a contender for the title. Good for Arenado.
