The Colorado Rockies aren’t focused on the offseason and how they might have to restructure their roster given certain contracts. They have their eyes fixed on the top of the NL West in a tight race for the division title.
While I don’t see the Rockies making any trades at the end of the season, especially since they are in the running for the NL West title, we may not see some Rockies in purple next year to start the season. Let’s focus on “the big three” in this article.
Yes, Arenado will be a part of the team next season but his contract ends after that, meaning there is a lot to think about this offseason with that lurking.
Arenado has come out and said that winning is all he wants. If the Rockies don’t make the playoffs the next two years, they will have a hard time getting Arenado to stay for 2020.

This is the number one priority for the Rockies. Arenado is easily the greatest player the Rockies have ever had in their organization. To let him walk, would be a horrible mistake.
The Rockies took a step in the right direction in keeping Arenado by extending Charlie Blackmon’s contract to six years and $108 million. Keeping an All-Star player for the next six years will help the Rockies win and give Arenado a reason to sign an extension.
If the Rockies want the keep Arenado, they need to win and not only that but win in the playoffs.
