The Dimaondbacks would win 2-1 with 5 double plays on defense after their pitching would allow 2 runners or more 6 times.

How I Will Remember This Year

Oh boy. Bickley is back.

Looks like Dan Bickley got a job at AM Sports 620 and will have his own show. I can't count how many times I've heard him say or write something that was highly disagreeable. Not that I'm a saint, but it's going to be hard to listen to him.

Time to change the rotation?

There's not doubt that this last month has been a very bad one for starting pitching. No wins since the 7th of June. 20 consecutive starts without a win. The combined starters ERA for the month...

Heath's problems solved?

I believe this to be true actually, considering he had a similar "epiphany" early on in the season which seemed to straighten him out for a while. We'll see next time he comes in.

BREAKING NEWS! Hudson re-tear's UCL

The news isn't good for RHP Daniel Hudson. After complaining of some sore elbow stiffness a week ago doctors have confirmed that he has re-torn his UCL. He will most certainly not be available...

Here we are 1/3rd of the way into the season and the D-Backs are the surprise team of the league. Who would have thought they'd be leading the division over the WS Champion Giants, and the deep...
