Where is the Depth ?

One would think that in trying to assemble a team as the D Backs have, they would at least have good depth, and reasonable options off the bench. However other than Eric Chavez, there hasn't been...

Fangraphs Ranks D Backs Rotation 24th in MLB

2
The loss of Pat Corbin hurts a lot, and exposes why the D’Backs spent so much time this winter shopping for an ace. Without Corbin at the front of the rotation, this group is pretty similar to the Brewers, with a lot of good-not-great starters at the top end and some real questions at the back end.

The link in the title is to a Grantland story on the reporting history of PED use. Fascinating article. Really strongly suggest a full read. And for a lighter touch, Keith Olberman's Worst Person in the Sports World was pretty funny.....Ken Gurnick, the MLB writer gets drilled You Tube

Attendance actually DOWN over 800 per Game

3

Following up recent discussion on Attendance, game over game from last year, not incuding Sunday's game with Milwaukee just before the break, attendance down 829 per game. The most recent homestand was not well attended. The team will have to stay in this race and hope for a good walk up in September to have any kind of meaningul increase over last year.
