Nolan Arenado ‘Sandblaster’ t-shirt now available

Nolan Arenado most certainly is “The Sandblaster” Nolan Arenado is entering the final week of his assault on the rest of the National League. The Colorado Rockies’ third baseman has emerged as a possible—perhaps, depending on who you ask, even probable—MVP candidate as a result of good, timely hitting and his usual brand of out-of-this-world defense. Arenado’s value has been fully on display this month; the superstar is hitting .307/.429/.547 through 23 games in September, helping to carry the Rockies to a multi-game lead over the two closest teams behind them in the Wild Card...

Rockies go deep three times in 4-1 victory

Rockies go deep three times in 4-1 victory

Arenado, Story and Desmond homered in the win. For four innings on Friday night, it seemed like the Rockies would never score again. Jordan Lyles, of all people, hadn’t allowed so much as a baserunner through the first twelve batters he faced. Then the bats finally woke up to the tune of three home runs in a 4-1 victory that preserved a 1 1⁄2 game lead over the Cardinals in the NL Wild Card. Jon Gray pitched well and earned his ninth victory of the season. In the bottom of the fifth, Nolan Arenado finally broke the 24-inning scoreless drought (and broke up Lyles’s perfect game) with...

Who should be the National League MVP?

Who should be the National League MVP?

We’ve presented the case for our guys. Now who wins it? This week we published the arguments for Nolan Arenado and for Charlie Blackmon for the 2017 National League Most Valuable Player award. Personally, I think the authors made excellent cases that are pretty hard to argue with but now we want to hear from you. We took a quick survey of the Purple Row staff—writers, editors, and moderators—and came up with the following results. We followed MLB’s voting procedures (14 points for a first place vote, 9 for second, 8 for third, 7 for fourth, and 6 for fifth), though we limited it to...
Kiszla: Who’s the real MVP of the Rockies’ playoff push? Sorry, Charlie. It’s Nolan Arenado.

Kiszla: Who’s the real MVP of the Rockies’ playoff push? Sorry, Charlie. It’s Nolan Arenado.

A heartfelt message to the Rockies: Hey, fellas. Relax. It’s only baseball. And so long as you have Nolan Arenado on your side, why worry about such trivial nuisances as the Cardinals, Brewers and playoff pressure?
