Rockies Basically Paid Nolan Arenado About $650,000 to Beat Them This Week


If you're a Colorado Rockies fan, you already know how bad it hurt to lose one of the best players in baseball, and how one-sided the trade was. However, finally seeing him on the other side this weekend was pretty hard, and even harder when you look at it like this.

The Rockies traded one of the best players of our generation and also gave the Cardinals $50 million to cover a portion of Arenado's $199 million contract, including all $35 million of 2021. So if you do the math, Nolan made $648,148.14 (before taxes and union dues) from his former team, to beat them all three times they played this weekend...

OUCH!
