Nolan Arenado might be doing something that no Rockies player has ever done before. Nolan Arenado might be the best power hitter in baseball, and this isn't getting as much attention as it should. Arenado has now homered in four off his last five games, he leads all of baseball in home runs (11), total bases (66), and RBI (25). He's also coming off a season in which he tied Bryce...

Is a hot dog a sandwich? It's a divisive topic, and on Wednesday the Colorado Rockies sparked a spirited debate on Twitter with one very well crafted and troll-ish tweet.

We’ve gotten to see many sides of Nolan Arenado over the past two years. The maker of ridiculous defensive plays. The hitter of a multitude of home runs. The effusive trotter of the base paths.
