Nolan and CarGo keep killin’ it
Nolan Arenado and Carlos Gonzalez are currently fighting it out (also with Paul Goldschmidt) for the NL lead in home runs. Nolan also has taken the NL lead in RBIs. It’s a fun contest to watch.
For Nolan, there’s already some history that’s been made as a third baseman in the Colorado Rockies’ organization:
And some still to go:
CarGo won’t catch Nolan for the RBI lead, but he may well win the home run race, which would spoil a potentially special season for Nolan, but give the Colorado Rockies a second massive offensive weapon… on a team that might finish 30 games under .500.
