With a home run off José Ureña on Friday, Nolan Arenado passed the century mark for RBI. And he did it by muscling it out to the opposite field. He currently leads MLB in RBI, as he did each of the past two seasons.

Whistle Sports and MLB.com's Thomas Harding teamed up with Charlie Blackmon to deliver the story of how the two-time All-Star outfielder converted from pitcher to hitter prior to his senior year in college. This is awesome.

That was a no doubter by the Gray Wolf, who to this point has carried the Rockies in each of his two starts since returning from the DL.

Nolan Arenado is now capable of landing himself the starting spot in the 2017 MLB All-Star game. As recently as June 12 he was down over 300,000 votes. Now, he's less than 40,000 away. Who will be the starting third baseman for the NL? Outfielder Charlie Blackmon remains in a starting spot and now has the third-most votes between both leagues, behind the Nationals' Bryce Harper and the Yankees' Aaron Judge.
Where were you when Nolan hit his walk-off?

Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon remains in second place in National League All-Star voting for outfielders. In fact, Chuck has moved into third place behind Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper and second baseman Daniel Murphy for overall vote totals in the National League. Nolan Arenado has closed the gap on Kris Bryant of the Cubs for the starting third base spot. DJ LeMahieu and Carlos Gonzalez are the only other Rockies to show up on the list.

Charlie Blackmon remains in good position in second round of All-Star Game voting
Charlie Blackmon remains in line to start for the National League, holding a 500,000 vote lead over the Cubs' Jason Heyward in third place. DJ LeMahieu has risen from no. 5 to no. 4, but still has just over a tenth of the votes of Daniel Murphy. Nolan Arenado remains in second place, though the gap is widening between him and leader Kris Bryant. No other Rockies player was listed on the vote totals. Maybe you should get out there and #VoteRockies
Dinger ranked 38th of 70 mascots according to Deadspin
There is perhaps nothing more divisive among Rockies fans than Dinger, the team's dinosaur mascot. Some people believe he is an abomination worthy of total destruction. Some people think he is merely an annoying mascot, like most other mascots. Correct people recognize Dinger's greatness. Apparently Deadspin is NOT among one of those people. Oh, and the Phillie Phanatic wasn't first, which is also criminal.

If things hold like this, Chuck Nazty will start the All-Star Game for the first time in his career. Elsewhere, Nolan Arenado is second among third basemen, DJ LeMahieu is fifth among second basemen, and Carlos Gonzalez comes in at 15th among outfielders. Mark Reynolds, one of the Rockies' best players to this point in the season, is not listed -- mostly because he's not on the ballot in the first place.

The Phillies were threatening--two on, no outs--when pitcher Vince Velasquez came to the plate to try to lay down a bunt. Not on Nolan's watch
A Brief Note on Gerardo Parra and Raimel Tapia
ROS proj (per 400 PA), via @steamerpro:— Hayden Ringer (@hjrrockies) May 16, 2017
Gerardo Parra: .274/.316/.415, 76 wRC+, -0.3 WAR
Raimel Tapia: .299/.332/.414, 81 wRC+, 1.0 WAR
The Rockies are electing to start Gerardo Parra over Raimel Tapia. The astute reader may desire a quantitative perspective on the issue.
