So....did you hear the one about the Arizona Diamondbacks being the hottest team in baseball?
It's not a joke, it's a fact: the Arizona Diamondbacks, with nine straight wins, are the hottest team in baseball.
The D-Backs now lead the National League West by six games, with about a month left to play -- and they're friggin' hot.
But how long can that flame burn?
The Milwaukee Brewers aren't lookin' to shabby, and the Philadelphia Phillies are the Philadelphia Phillies. Not to mention, the D-Backs have two more three-game series with their down-and-out division rival San Francisco Giants.

But we want to know what you think: are the Arizona Diamondbacks a World Series team?
