Nolan Arenado has put together yet another impressive season, leading to Cooperstown member Pedro Martinez glorifying his play. Martinez is so impressed with Areando’s game that he went as far as to say that he should be the MVP of the National league.
I believe the NL MVP has to go to Arenado! This kid is hitting consistently at home and on the road.

Areando is hitting .286 so far this season. His 34 homeruns and 108 RBIs lead the National League.
Nolan is a fan favorite around the league and can be considered one of, if not the best, third basemen in the game today.
Year in and year out, Arenado has put up stellar numbers, but has never won an MVP award. Today, he is on track to eclipse his batting average, homerun and RBI totals from last season, which would make 2016 the best year of his career.
