DENVER (AP) A certain Colorado Rockies player struck it rich this spring: Leadoff hitter Charlie Blackmon .
Although, All-Star third baseman Nolan Arenado didn't fare too bad, either, with his eight-year contract worth $260 million. Blackmon profits through Colorado's experiment to bat Arenado in the No. 2 spot - a plan that could spill into the regular season.
That means even more juicy pitches for Blackmon in what's become a loaded lineup with the addition of Daniel Murphy . After back-to-back postseason appearances, the Rockies are setting their sights even higher this season - the first NL West title in franchise history.
