Nolan Arenado, 27, agreed to an eight-year, $260 million extension with the Colorado Rockies. Several sources around the country have confirmed the the agreement. The deal makes the 2019 free agent class less exciting. But this is great news for Colorado fans. Teams were going to line up next summer to bid on Arenado. He leads all of baseball with 503 RBI and 336 extra-base hits. While he didn’t match Manny Machado’s total dollars, he did beat him in average salary. Arenado will be at $32.5 million and Machado is at $30 million. Zach Greinke is at $34.4 million.
