Nolan Arenado is mad, bro. The Colorado Rockies’ best player thinks the general manager has treated him with “disrespect” and it’s increasingly looking like this situation isn’t going to end amicably.
For Wednesday’s WISE Sports Radio baseball segment, Pat Ryan and I recapped how Arenado and the Rockies got here. Also, will MLB umpires be mic’d up like NFL referees this season? Is Ryan Braun retiring after this season? Why does it matter that Kris Bryant lost his grievance with the Chicago Cubs? And the new manager of the Houston Astros is… Dusty Baker?
What wasn’t official while we were on the air is official now: Dusty Baker is the Houston Astros’ new manager. Oh, the Astros’ new era approach and Baker’s old-school philosophies will make an interesting partnership. I might sign back up with MLB.TV just to watch. (If the Detroit Tigers signed free agent outfielder Yasiel Puig, I would definitely re-subscribe to MLB.TV this season.)
