so Goldschmidt led the league

In HR, RBI, OPS, SLG, OPS+, TOTAL bases and XBH. IF I'm not mistaken, the only Dbacks to lead the league in an offensive category are Gonzo in hits, Dellucci in triples in 1998 and Womack in SB....

Dbacks might not start a pitcher over 30 for another 5 years

Don't know if anyone saw this earlier this year but I thought it was an amazing stat:...

2012 Top Prospects from MLB.com

2

Didn't see this posted but MLB.com released its 2012 prospect watch: if you want to save time Bauer's #9, Bradley's #20, Skaggs is #21 and recently departed Jarrod Parker is #26. Matt Moore, Bryce Harper & Mike Trout are 1,2,3 FWIW Criteria is still rookie eiligible

Cahill strikes out Aaron Hill AND John McDonald

4

Watching a little Cahill on MLB's site and came across this one - Ks 7 in 8 innings including Hill swinging and McDonald BUNTING. Bonus footage of McDOnald as he was the final out.

Dbacks sign former MLB OF Jason Lane. . . . .as a pitcher

1

Always found crossover players intriguing. Hey, throw Hudson, Enright, Owings and Lane out there as starters and they would have the best hitting pitching staff, no question :-)

Just an observation on Cahill & Breslow and maybe KT

Was going over Dbacks stats in the wake of the trade and I think I noticed an interesting trend in current DBacks pitchers. It seems to me that KT greatly values pitchers who pitch better than...

Rob Neyer would have given the GG to all 3 DBacks OFers.

Mentioned at the end of the story - he felt Chris Young was the 2nd most egregious miss and would have voted for each of Parra, Young & Upton. FWIW

Do the DBacks target good hitting pitchers?

This seems like a good time to ask in the wake of Hudson's big day but I was playing with Fangraphs and noticed that the DBacks seem to have had a lot of good hitting pitchers lately. Notes: - I...

BA's Mid-season Top 50 - DBacks included!

5

Didn't see it posted anywhere but BA just came out with their mid-season Top 50 Prospects and 3 Dbacks are included: Skaggs at 19, Parker at 40 and GOldschmidt comes from nowhere to rank #50. Pretty impressive climb for Goldschmidt considering he wasn't even in BA's Top 10 for the DBacks at the start of the season: http://www.baseballamerica.com/today/prospects/rankings/organization-top-10-prospects/2011/2611157.html

Joe Posnanski Poscast - DBacks mentioned

+

1st probably 10 minutes of Joe Posnanski's most recent podcast is all about the DBacks. Not lots of analysis or anything but interesting commentary from some outsiders. FWIW

OK, I hate to be a negative nellie but. . . . . .

Just thought I would point this out - the Dbacks' major off-season acquisitions were JJ Putz, Zach Duke, Geoff Blum, Melvin Mora, Armando Galarraga, Xavier Nady, Rusell Branyon, Willie Bloomquist &...

Another analysis of the Haren trade, with numbers and everything! :-)

3

Another analysis of the Haren trade by Hardball Times. Short answer: the Dbacks came out behind on the deal but not by much. To me the analysis misses one aspect though - the cost savings. If the Dbacks use the savings next year (from both Haren & Jackson's departures) on a free agent, that has to be factored in as well.

Brief rundown of the DBacks arms acquired at the deadline

2

Pretty brief and doesn't include Skaggs since he's not official yet, but some analysis of each of the arms acquired by the DBacks (as well as several other teams)

Jeff Salazar sighting. . . .

7

Former fan-favorite Jeff Salazar managed to draw a walk off Stephen Strasburg last night, one of only 2 baserunners Strasburg allowed.

Sergio Santos makes the Show. . . .

3

Sergio Santos made the opening day roster for the White Sox. . . . .as a pitcher. White Sox converted him to pitcher last year and he's out of options and apparently they thought enough of his potential that they will break camp with the former DBacks' 1st round pick in the pen.

Interview w Chad Moeller

2

Rob Neyer linked to this in his column at ESPN but an interview in the NY Times with Chad Moeller about his favorite pitchers to catch. As you might imagine, DBacks figure prominently. Good stuff.

The Haren trade. . . .2 years on.

On December 14, 2007 the DBacks traded the 2nd Chris Carter, Brett Anderson, Aaron Cunningham, Dana Eveland, Carlos Gonzalez & Greg Smith for Dan Haren & Connor Robertson in a blockbuster trade....

SI ranks the farm systems. The DBacks are. . . .

5

. . . .not rated very highly: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2009/baseball/mlb/12/01/farm.systems/index.html I assume they aren't giving much weight to this year's draft crop since most draft reviewers are giving the DBacks high marks for this year's draft.

Chris Young - where from here?

The positive hype over Chris Young started virtually the day of the trade with the White Sox and included comments like perennial All-Star and so on. As of a couple years ago, he looked like his...

Mark Reynolds - fluke or the real thing?

Have been real up in the air about Mark Reynolds for awhile. Obviously the guy strikes out a lot but count me among those who think that Ks aren't THAT bad. OTOH, extreme strikeout guys don't tend...
