Nolan Arenado has started on a tear. He must start at third for the Rockies this season. We're talking stick.
Do the right thing, Rockies. Take Arenado home to Denver with the team. Play The Kid.
With his Wonderboy-like bat, Arenado has blistered the ball with back-to-back-to-back home run games. He has four homers — and two doubles — in six games. All the other Rockies hitters combined have accumulated one home run. Arenado smacked another home run in the fourth inning Monday. He also doubled against the Mariners in Peoria, Ariz.
He is hitting .412 (7-for-17) with 20 total bases and eight RBIs.
Arenado, 21, is a natural. Nolan can rake at the plate. He can vacuum at third.
With Troy Tulowitzki healthy and back at shortstop, and Carlos Gonzalez still playing all-star ball in left field, if Arenado took over at third base, the club's left side on its defense would be the Rox of Gibraltar. With CarGo, Tulo and NoDo hitting 3-4-5 in the lineup, the Rockies might produce three .300 hitters and an aggregate of 300 RBIs and 90 home runs.
It's time, Rockies.
