you're obviously a Rockies fan and your homerism showed through a little bit here and there, but a good read nonetheless. You should have mentioned his 41 doubles in 2010

I've got Arenado in my keeper league and I'm hoping he'll get promoted early 2012.

as for expectations, 290-20-100 and maybe 30 homers a season in his peak.

amazing contact skills, in 1208 Plate appearances he has 123 K's

Looking like 3B will be his for the taking by midseason-ish if he mashes in AA. Per rotoworld:

According to Troy Renck of the Denver Post, Casey Blake is unlikely to make the Rockies' 25-man roster.
Blake is just 3-for-20 this spring with no walks and seven strikeouts, and there are lingering concerns about the health of his neck. So the Rockies are likely to cut him loose before Opening Day to avoid paying his $2 million salary for 2012. Jordan Pacheco and Chris Nelson will keep the hot corner warm until top prospect Nolan Arenado is ready.

Maybe its just me, but I don't understand why the Rockies don't play Cuddyer at 3rd, and platoon Colvin/Young Jr. in RF. That pairing would produce a much better offensive output than Pacheco/Nelson would. Cuddyer has played a significant number of games at 3rd in his career (~150+ starts).

But as an Arenado owner, I'm not complaining that the Rockies continue to logjam their OF and keep 3B open (assuming neither Pacheco/Nelson break out) for Arenado to be recalled at some point this year.

I think Pacheco will do pretty well but even so I still see Arenado up in the bigs by June or July. His plate discipline is so well advanced for a 20 year old. He should mash AA pitching.
