Is Nolan Arenado the Best Third Baseman in Baseball?

For the past few years, the Colorado Rockies haven’t had much go their way. They’ve finished in last or next to last in all of the past five years and in their entire team history, they’ve never finished in first place in their division. They’ve won one NLCS, which was in 2007, and went on to play the Boston Red Sox in the World Series and were swept. Sorry Rockies fans....
