4.  Nolan Arenado is a St. Louis Cardinal with MVP cred

Nolan Arenado is a St. Louis Cardinal. And he continues to amaze fans around the league.

Arenado played 148 games for the Cardinals, hitting .293/358/.533 with an OPS of .891. He hit 42 doubles, 30 home runs, 73 runs scored, and 103 RBI. Arenado completed his seventh consecutive season with over 30 home runs and 100 RBI. And each night, he dazzles with spectacular plays at the hot corner.

To top things off, he got to play this season with his favorite baseball player, Albert Pujols. And, Arenado became a first-time father in August when his wife gave birth to their daughter, Levi. Arenado has quietly and professionally stood by and performed to the highest caliber next to teammates like Pujols, Yadier Molina, and Paul Goldschmidt.  He could be an MVP candidate. He will undoubtedly win another Gold Glove and should be considered for many other honors.

Arenado is just a tremendous athlete, and it’s fantastic to see what he can do at third base and the plate. After being on a team that won the NL Central, playing deep in the postseason was his next goal, and here’s hoping he has a fantastic postseason run.

Nolan Arenado is a St. Louis Cardinal. And don’t you forget it.
