The Colorado Rockies have certainly been Arenado’s team for the last couple weeks — but is that true going forward? Has the baton already been passed?

I thought of the idea for this poll earlier this morning when I read 5280 Magazine’s recent posts on Nolan Arenado asserting himself as the leader of the Colorado Rockies (go here and here to read those).
It’s certainly an interesting point of view — I won’t say whether they are right or wrong in this post because I don’t want to affect your votes, duh — and it’s something very topical in light of how hot Arenado has been over the last couple weeks (and, really, all year).
So before we go any further pontificating and posturing about whether Nolan or Troy Tulowitzki runs the show here in Denver, let’s get right to it:
And, of course, you should tweet us your thoughts about this one: @RoxPileFS for the site, or @BobbyDeMuro for me, personally. Actually, it’s not that you should tweet us about this, it’s that I’d love to have a good ol’ Twitter debate with y’all over this, because I think — very broadly — both sides have a case to be made.
Anyways, we’ll see you tonight for the Diamondbacks game, and maybe Nolan will hit two home runs (again) to assert his position in Denver and stake his claim as an early MVP candidate in the National League.
