2011 Draft: Who Signed What?

The deadline to sign draft picks is typically 11:59pm on August 15th but the D-backs have stormed out of the gate to sign 23 of their picks by June 9th. Most importantly, they have already locked up three of their top ten picks in Evan Marshall, Jesse Darrah, and John Leanord.


Does a larger attendance make a difference?

Earlier today my pops was telling me how sad it was that he could change channels from the Diamondbacks game, one with only 18,000 fans in attendance, to the Red Sox game in Fenway with 40,000+ in attendance... which was in the 10th inning. That got me thinking about our attendance throughout the year and whether or not a smaller crowd has had any serious affect on the Diamondbacks play.

Diamondbacks 11, Astros 9: Nevuh Fuhget - The Pony Dome 08/09/11

Just another ordinary game that featured 31 hits, 20 runs, 10 doubles, 4 home runs, and... just kidding, it wasn't ordinary. Not to mention that it was the FREAKIN' ASTROS.

Diamondbacks Ups and Downs: July 21-July 28 (The Justin Upton) Edition

The D-backs went 5-2 and outscored their opponents 40-19 but failed to gain any ground in the division race. We've been stuck in second place since June 25th. Guhhhh. Anyway, onward to this week's Trends...

Diamondbacks 3, Padres 4: Winning a Series Never Felt So Crappy

The Diamondbacks went back and forth with the Padres today, swapping strikeouts and leads until a 6th inning two-out rally secured it for San Diego. It was another frustrating game to watch for the offense as they failed to take advantage of pretty much any situation, going 0-5 with runners in scoring position with only six total hits in the game.

Diamondbacks Ups and Downs: July 5-July 20 (Ouchies) Edition

The D-backs took a bit of a nosedive heading into the All-Star break with some tough break losses to the Cardinals but quickly recovered to take the "Beat L.A." series to start the second half. Barry Enright was recalled and promptly imploded, Zach Duke was relegated, and Aaron Heilman was told that he wasn't allowed on the team anymore. And that's just the tip of the iceberg...

How did the D-backs fare this past week? Tune in to find out...

Diamondbacks Ups and Downs: June 8-June 14 Edition

The Diamondbacks worked another winning percentage this past week going 4-3 against the Giants, Marlins, and Pirates. They outscored their opponents yet again, 39-30, and were a basehit away from stealing the division lead from the Giants. Ian Kennedy and Dan Hudson picked up more wins and Justin Upton continued to mash the ball. Read more at the AZSnakepit to learn all about this week's trends.

Diamondbacks 5, Giants 6: "One Morning I Shot an Elephant in My Pajamas. How He Got in My Pajamas, I Don't Know."

The D-backs fell into a hole early on and had to slowly scrape their way out of it to make the game interesting. Unfortunately, Brian Wilson (with a little help from the umpire) was just too much to handle in the end.

Diamondbacks Ups and Downs: June 1-June 7 Edition

The Diamondbacks went an even 3-3 to start the month of June, scoring 22 runs and allowing 28. They sprinkled in a couple of shutouts in between consecutive games of allowing 5 runs or more. Despite the regression in the bullpen, there's still a light of good things to take note of; read on to learn more...

Diamondbacks Ups and Downs: May Edition

Tim to examine the Diamondbacks' May performances. It was a fun month to watch as the Diamondbacks posted a .655 winning percentage, the best month they've had since April 2008. The D-backs went 19-10 and outscored their opponents 133-102. Read on to find out who got us there and who tried to hold us back...

Diamondbacks 2, Marlins 5: Don't Worry, the Giants Lost

Anibal Sanchez drove in as many runs as he allowed, which wasn't many. The D-backs winning streak ended but their lead in the West remained the same. What went wrong? What went right?

Diamondbacks Ups and Downs: May 18th-May 24th Edition

The Diamondbacks cruised to the tune of a 6-1 record over the past week. Although the bullpen looked a bit stale at times, the offense woke up and started to produce. The D-backs averaged 5.1 runs per game during the stretch but only outscored their opponents by two runs: 36-34. Find out more in our weekly "trending" article.

Diamondbacks Ups and Downs: May 11th-May 17th Edition

The Diamondbacks crawled to a 3-4 record during the past week and in doing so managed to stay out of last place for another day. Meanwhile, one guy was DFA'd, another keeps hitting home runs, and some dude named Ian keeps pitching like a boss. Check out this week's trends....

Diamondbacks 6, Padres 1: Puttin' On the Ritz

The D-backs move out of last place in the division, improve their record when not hitting a home run to 3-13, and Dan Hudson now officially owns the Padres. A recap of the 6-1 victory at the hands of Tim Stauffer.

Diamondbacks Ups and Downs: May 4th-May 10th Edition

Another six games are in the books and the D-backs saw plenty of action along the way. Barry Enright was sent to Triple-A, a four hour game was won against Colorado, and the Hudson/Kennedy duo outperformed the now renowned Haren/Weaver duo. Unfortunately, the offense could only muster 3.2 runs per game during the stretch and the team would ultimately limp away with a 2-4 record.

Diamondbacks Ups and Downs: April 27th-May 3rd Edition

The D-backs split the last six games with some impressive play. On the other hand, some disappointing pitching and a collective team batting avg. of .226 prevented any chance at posting a more appealing record. The offense outscored their opponents 28-25, but the Cubs proved to be to big a thorn to simply dispose of. So come and join us for a look at this week's trends...

Diamondbacks 4, Rockies 3: He who laughs last, laughs longest

The D-backs trotted out a lineup this evening that has been referred to as the "B-Team" as well as the likes of the not-so-fan-favorite Joe Saunders. As the Colorado Rockies stormed into town on a mission, bringing some of the sexiest looking pitching numbers we could only wish for, a lot of fans set they're expectations low for this game and the series. Not so fast...

Diamondbacks Ups and Downs: April 13th Edition

We saw quite a lot of action since last Wednesday with the D-backs going 4-2 since the last edition. Arizona scored 13 runs on two occasions and tallied a total of 45 runs during the six game stretch. Kirk Gibson almost turned into the Hulk and Juan Miranda hit his first home run with the team. I love baseball. Tune in for this weeks Ups and Downs.

Diamondbacks 5, Cubs 6: [Wordfind] Demel

A messy 7th inning for both pitching squads made for an interesting game but the D-backs still managed to let this one slip away. Despite a quality start (though it's debatable) from Barry Enright, the team couldn't piece together enough offense at the right times to salvage a victory.


Uni Watch!!!

  The 13th annual MLB preview was posted yesterday and it certainly has some goodies. It's somewhat of a tame year when it comes to uniform changes but it's still fun to look over all of the...

Fangraphs rates the D-backs farm among the top 10

Marc Hulet has a nice, and somewhat surprising, writeup of the farm's top ten prospects and rates the system an overall 10th out of 30. Krauss as the fifth best prospect seems like a hell of stretch, though.
