Third baseman Nolan Arenado, in particular, continues to showcase his Gold Glove touch. In the third inning of Colorado’s 5-3 loss to the Giants on Wednesday afternoon, he robbed Giants starting pitcher Ty Blach of a single. Blach hit a shot into the hole on the left side of the infield, where Arenado dove and snared the ball, but it squirted out of his glove.

While it may fill our prisons, it won’t “make America safe again.” First, let’s set the record straight. The …
