The morning after Nolan Arenado makes another phenomenal play against the San Francisco Giants, we figured we’d better check… yep, still as entertaining as it was the first thousand times we saw it.
Just wanted to double check because, you know, it’s been a whole day. Is Nolan Arenado still a good baseball player? Can he still field pretty well? What’s that? Yes, he can? Oh, ok.
MLB.com’s Cut Four calls Nolan Arenado a baseball magician. Come one, come all, step right up, as this man will magically turn no outs into two outs, using just the glove on his hand and the quickness of his throwing arm and feet! It’s magic.
I mean, it is though. It’s stupid good. Watch this again, and again (come on, like you haven’t already a thousand times).
I feel for the Giants, man. This is two series in a row Nolan Arenado has done something stupid against them that defies logic one way or another. But man is he fun to watch. Who knows what he’ll do next!
Here, have some more fun, knock yourself out:
Coors Shield, baby.
