Possible lineup and rotation this time next year

Just random thoughts, since i've had writer's block the last few weeks, but thinking about how the team could look a year from now has got me really excited We could have a lineup that looks like...

So how does Upton compare to other right fielders? Upton’s 3.4 fWAR ranks 3rd in the MLB among right fielders, after Jose Bautista (who’s in the AL and in a class of his own) and Ben Zobrist (also in the AL). His .395 wOBA ranks 6th among outfielders in the MLB. Out of all batters, Upton ranks 8th in OPS, 9th in OPS+, 4th in doubles, 10th in SLG%, 5th in total bases, and 6th in hits. He’s doing all of this at the age of 23, and for the low price of $6.75 million, even though Upton has already produced 15 million dollars worth of production according to Fangraphs.

So long and thanks for all the fish

I've recently accepted an offer to be the Diamondbacks writer for SportsHaze Phoenix, so I will be leaving the snakepit as an author as of the first of the year. I may still comment on articles,...

Dbacks talking to three teams about Mark Reynolds.


"The Diamondbacks are discussing possible Mark Reynolds trades with three teams, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports . The Orioles, Padres and Blue Jays are interested in the third baseman, though he can block trades to Toronto. The extent of the Padres' interest is unclear, according to Rosenthal."


Fixing the dbacks: An Offseason Plan

It appears the Diamondbacks will try to contend next season, but to do so they will need to make some changes. We need to fill the hole in left field/first base (fixing one is simple as plugging in...


The Chris Young bet

Before the season began, I made a bet with BattleMoses that Chris Young would post a better OPS in 2010 than in 2007. The loser would have to pay 50 dollars to a charity of the winner's choice....

Who's the Diamondbacks' top offensive prospect?


With the way four of our offensive prospects are doing, it got me thinking. Who is the best offensive prospect in the Dbacks' farm system? Is it Marc Krauss? Paul Goldschmidt? Brandon Allen? Or...

With all my buddies and fellow teammates breaking camp to long season teams, I've found myself in unfamiliar territory. It was good to have all those guys around during spring training to take my mind off the grind of my current rehab. Things have been going real good in my current throwing program and have not had any complaints following my surgery! I am currently throwing at 120 ft and starting to work in throwing change-ups at 60 ft as i finish my long toss. That is the main point to my throwing program, finishing up the long toss program and building endurance in my elbow and shoulder. Im really looking forward to my mound progression which begins in early May, as long as this rehab has been I am beginning to see the light at the end of tunnel.
