That doesn’t help

Although if it makes us feel any better, his career slash away from Coors is .263/.322/.471, 79 OPS+

If only we could count on that, but it's been well documented that the wildly different things the ball does in Colorado screws with guys when they're away from Colorado, so he'll probably be awesome.

I just don't think a career .349 OBP from a 3B hitting in Coors says says "superstar." Lindor would have been a better move

MEH

I liked the 2020 draft with Walker, Wynn, and Hence much so hopefully they traded those guys

People usually become better when they put on the Cardinals uniform for whatever reason

So, I guess this means StL has the best 3rd basemen in the NL Central.

This is very good news. If Arenado's still a superstar he won't be there the full term.

The hauls the Cardinals have given away for Arenado, Goldschmidt, Rolen and McGwire have been so crappy, Andrew Friedman is jealous.

I'm sure someone STL has given away in one of these trades since Dan Haren in the Mark Mulder deal has turned out to be pretty good, but I don't remember any of them.

He makes $31 million and nobody is getting that money anymore

I mean good for them, they see a time when they actually have a chance to be better than the Cubs on paper for the first time in like 5 years. But if you come at the king you best not miss. Especially with how that contract will look if he doesn’t make the post Coors adjustment.

Yup. That 5 years was just a huge chunk of history when you think about it.

I’m not sure how old you are, but based on the demographics of this board, there’s a decent chance that you remember a grand total of one more WS title for your team than I do for mine.

besides the current economic situation in baseball, hard to believe those opt outs happening right before or right after either the players get screwed in the new CBA or there's long terrible lockout and then the players get screwed in the new CBA

The Rockies are reportedly kicking in 50 mil for the mostly middling prospects.

I know this is a Cubs board, but the Cardinals just horsefeathering stole him.
