The Colorado Rockies traded away Nolan Arenado (for way too little) because they did not want to spend more money to try to keep up with the Dodgers. Trevor Story will end up leaving the Rockies because they did not want to spend enough to keep him. Today they signed Kris Bryant to a seven-year $182M deal. You figure it out.
On the other hand, look for Bryant to have some really nice hitting stats.
