Drama Escalating Between Nolan Arenado, Rockies, According To Reports. (1/20/19)

Nolan Arenado. You can pretty much ask any sports fan in the Denver-area and they will be able to tell you that he is a baseball player for the Colorado Rockies.

Arenado has been a staple in the Rockies franchise for quite some time now. Drafted in 2013, the five-time all star has won seven golden gloves and four silver slugger awards. He was ranked third in the 2018 National League MVP voting and has continued to show incredible finesse at Coors Field and elsewhere in his seven seasons on the Colorado Rockies.

Recently, there have been many rumors spreading about other teams reaching out to the Rockies with trade offers for their best player — and some drama has came from that. But according to Arenado, he believes that the worst drama is coming from the locker room.

Even though he appears to be on their roster for spring training, Nolan Arenado has publicly voiced his displeasure with the Rockies organization:“There’s a lot of disrespect from people there that I don’t want to be a part of. You can quote that,” Arenado said to MLB.com Surprisingly, Arenado did not explain what made him feel this way, but he did acknowledge that the trade talks to the Braves and Cardinals did not bother him.

These comments came shortly after the Denver Post had published an article that the Rockies had decided to move on despite other teams’ interest in trading for Arenado.

It will be interesting to continue watching Nolan Arenado and the Rockies’ relationship going into the next season. Will this drama distract the franchise so much that Colorado will see a departure from the MLB’s #3-ranked player?

We will just have to wait and see.
