Do the Colorado Rockies have a National League MVP at third base? Probably not… but there’s a chance, and we make the overly-optimistic case for him today!

It’s not likely that Nolan Arenado will win the National League’s Most Valuable Player Award for the season he’s had with the Colorado Rockies this year, but it is certainly possible, and he’s without a doubt on a short list of candidates.

Bryce Harper is the presumptive winner, and he probably should win (since, you know, he’s far and away the best player in the NL right now), but this isn’t a Bryce Harper website, this is a Rockies’ website!

So let’s make the MVP case for everybody’s favorite member of the Rockies!

Again, he has little chance of winning, but… there are a couple of things that could push the vote his favor, I suppose. To the argument…
