Rockies Reporter On Arenado Deal: "Both Sides Needed This"

	Colorado Rockies extend Nolan Arenado
	By		Drew Creasman

Arenado likes where he's at and the direction the Colorado Rockies are headed.

"Manny is a little bit younger than Nolan, so Nolan knew he wouldn't get as many years, but I think what Manny did was set the parameters there and certainly the Rockies feel really good about Nolan and feel better about him, frankly, than anyone else would feel about Machado at this point". "I really enjoy the fact there's a comfortability here". Only pitcher Zack Greinke makes more per season at $34.4 million annually.

"Hopefully it's not a factor but those sorts of situations are part of large contracts these days with the type of commitment", Bridich said. Bryce Harper remains on the market.

Machado only recently found a home, agreeing to a 10-year, $300 million deal with the San Diego Padres.

Of course it's a very hard place to go against a good side but I think with how we're playing we have a good chance to win. In the last 10 or 12 games you must be strong".

The Dodgers , while an appealing option on the west coast, would not make sense for Harper at this juncture on a short-term deal. San Francisco has been viewed as a legitimate contender for Harper over the last few weeks.

King wiped tears from her face as she accepted her award, thanking her mother who was attending the ceremony with her. Curtis tweeted out her support of Evans, praising him for his gentlemanly ways.

The length and structure of the deal was important to the Rockies. We have to make sure the term is something we can live with.

"Obviously, they wanted to keep a homegrown player with them", Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. "Our high price or All-Star players need to be on the field". Arenado's only concern was going into this season without long-term certainty and what a down season or even an injury could mean when free agency arrived. "There is risk in injury", Wolfe said. There are things that could happen. In his career, he has won a Gold Glove award every season since breaking into the big leagues and has hit at least 30 HR and 100 RBI in his last four consecutive seasons.

Arenado was scheduled to become a free agent after this season and had previously agreed to a one-year, $26 million contract to avoid arbitration. The $137MM mark at which they opened the 2018 season was already an all-time high for the team, but Arenado's new deal - depending on how the dollars are distributed - will likely bring Colorado's Opening Day payroll beyond $155MM (as outlined by Roster Resource's Jason Martinez).

According to ESPN, the eight-year extension is worth $260 million and includes an opt-out clause after three years, which will allow him to enter free agency in advance of his age-31 campaign. "I love playing with this group".
