Diamondbacks read your mean tweets about their awful uniforms

Most people (myself included) think that the Arizona Diamondbacks’ new uniforms are pretty terrible. Let’s take a look at them (Note: These aren’t actual Diamondbacks players): Woof. And the pant leg for the home uniforms would make you think Paul Goldschmidt and company were in a horror movie: Well, the Diamondbacks are well aware that you probably hate their uniforms, and...

Zack Greinke unveiled baseball's most awkward base hit celebration

Zack Greinke is a straight-faced ace on the mound for the Arizona Diamondbacks. He doesn't often display emotion or show that he actually enjoys making millions for playing baseball, but he has his moments. Monday night was one of those rare instances where Greinke had some fun on the diamond, and it wasn't after striking out a batter. It came after he laced a single past the third...

What should we make of the Diamondbacks?

The Diamondbacks were baseball’s most entertaining team this winter by a long shot. The huge signings, the weird trades, the insane uniform redesign – everything they did made you take notice. It was the kind of offseason baseball writers dream about, where a team decides to throw everything they have against the wall and hope it all sticks. But would they be any good once the...

You Want The Lamb Souvlikey Or The Shish-Kabuy?

To understand Jake Lamb, I think it's important to go back to the 1964 Summer Olympics when his father's hero, Lambis Manthos, was competing for Greece in the 50 meter pistol shooting event.  Due to a clerical error, Lambis thought he was competing in the 50 centimeter pistol shooting event.  Lambis practiced shooting dinner plates from about 20 inches away.  At one point...

What’s Up With Greinke’s Slider?

Zack Greinke goes to the mound today after giving up 13 runs in his last three starts, something he didn’t do at all last year. So we’re all trying to diagnose him. He is, too. We couldn’t figure it out together, really. Sorry to spoil the ending. The slider is getting hit hard. Of his pitch types, it has the second-worst exit velocity so far this year, and it’s suffered...

Are the Reeling Arizona Diamondbacks Already Done in the NL West?

Arizona Diamondbacks Stumble Out of the Gate

The Arizona Diamondbacks spent the majority of the offseason revamping their roster. Add an ace pitcher, subtract a shortstop prospect, add another arm to the bullpen, and continue the equation until you get a World Series ring. At least that’s the plan, right? The moves that were made throughout the offseason sent a clear message that the D-Backs have every intention of contending...
