About the only thing left to enjoy then, besides the last days of sunshine at Coors...

Why no one talks about Nolan Arenado even though they should

The Colorado Rockies best kept secret is only a secret if you don’t watch the Rockies play. There aren’t many infielders in the game of baseball today that bring the package that Nolan Arenado does. While he has quietly become one of the best third basemen in the league today, perhaps the scariest thing about Nolan Arenado is that he’s 23 years old. There are a lot of reasons...
