Arenado homers for 1,000th hit, Rockies rally past Nats 7-5

DENVER (AP) — No. 1,000 was nothing new for Nolan Arenado.

Arenado hit a tiebreaking homer for his 1,000th career hit and the Colorado Rockies rallied to beat the Washington Nationals 7-5 Monday night.

Arenado also doubled twice and drove in two to help the Rockies win for the seventh time in eight games. He is the ninth Rockies player to reach 1,000 hits, getting there with a solo shot off Wander Suero (1-2) in the seventh to make it 6-5.

Wondering who the other eight Rockies in question are…

Cubs and Rockies stars let out frustrations with ump-charging meltdowns

After meeting in the National League wild-card game last season, the Chicago Cubs and Colorado Rockies have both gotten off to disappointing starts in 2019.

On Saturday, the frustrations of both teams seemingly boiled over as Cubs outfielder Kyle Schwarber and Rockies All-Star third baseman Nolan Arenado got into heated confrontations with umpires over perceived missed calls.

Schwarber was the decisive batter during Saturday’s Angels-Cubs game at Wrigley Field. With the bases loaded, two outs and the Cubs down by one run, Schwarber stepped to the plate against Angels closer Cody Allen in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Schwarber worked the count full, then attempted to check his swing on a pitch in the dirt. The struggling Cubs slugger thought he held up. Third base umpire Gabe Morales disagreed. Morales rang Schwarber up on the appeal, which sent Schwarber into a fit of rage.

Do you think that these players would be brave enough to charge a RoboUmp?

For Nolan Arenado, it’s about more than just the money

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Mid-morning, the fog that was low and warm lifted. Filtered and grayish since daybreak, the sun’s rays hit him square across the shoulders and neck. The infield, otherwise smooth and glossy, was, a few steps to his left, a few steps back, chopped and pitted and worn.

“Right down that line, dawg,” he shouted.

And so all that stuff that looks made up in the moment, that looks impossible until it isn’t, that can only be a gift of intuition and providence, began with a two-hopped fungo hissed over the third-base bag. With a backhander that carried him into the grass. With a throw that out-raced an imaginary runner.

Is it about the pie?

Nolan Arenado discusses contract negotiations | Colorado Rockies

“I’m not going to sit here and say there is a deadline,” Arenado said. “As a collective group between me, my agent and the Rockies, I think we’re going to have a quiet deadline. There’s a time and place to focus on ball. They have a job to do, too. They’re trying to help us win games, also. I think they’re more worried on helping us win games than trying to get this contract done at a certain time.

“When serious games start, there’ll probably be a silent deadline. I’m not sure. But at the end of the day, I’m open to anything. It’s been fine. There’s no hard feelings. We can talk whenever.”

Report: Rockies’ Nolan Arenado Signs Record $26M Deal to Avoid Arbitration

The Rockies avoided arbitration with All-Star third baseman Nolan Arenado after agreeing to a deal on Thursday, the club announced.

Per The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal, Arenado and Colorado settled at $26 million, setting a record for an arbitration-eligible player. He initially reported that Arenado requested for $30 million and the Rockies countered with $24 million.

The previous record was set last year, when Josh Donaldson agreed to a one-year, $23 million with the Blue Jays.

So, what do we suppose this means in a broader sense?

Report: Yankees could be in on Nolan Arenado

The Yankees appear to have moved on from free agent Manny Machado this winter, but could they be turning their attention to Rockies superstar Nolan Arenado? That’s the idea floated by Andy Martino of SNY, who hears that GM Brian Cashman has been involved in recent discussions concerning the third baseman. No official comments have been made to the press yet, though, and it’s not clear whether the Yankees would prefer to pursue Arenado prior to the 2019 season or partway through it.

They also are trying to figure out if the Rockies management will just hand him over like the Marlins would, or will actually want something of value.
