Ziegler unfazed by trade talk, line drive to ribs

PHOENIX -- Brad Ziegler had good cause to be distracted Wednesday. His name has been mentioned in trade talks this week, although there seems little chance he is going anywhere. And after being struck in the rib cage by a line drive Tuesday, he was unable to pitch in the final game of the Detroit series. He was still in some pain, but at least he could chuckle about it. He knows...

Tony La Russa needs to give Diamondbacks a complete overhaul

With a great poker face, Tony La Russa has been evaluating the Diamondbacks for two months. We don't know many details, except he can barely stand to look at his manager.

Ziegler survives shot to the ribs

PHOENIX -- It hurt to walk, but Brad Ziegler could laugh about the line drive that hit him squarely in the rib cage Tuesday.

The jarring makes everything kind of vibrate in the area. It makes it tender. Talking...

WATCH: Paul Goldschmidt crushes another huge home run

Your browser does not support iframes.   Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Paul Goldschmidt crushed another monster home run last night. These majestic bombs are becoming quite routine for the two-time All-Star, who just continues to produce like a machine. The homer marked Goldy’s 18th home run (6th in the N.L.) and 64th and 65th RBIs (tied for 1st in the N.L.) and why he...

One particular Arizona Diamondbacks fan was so excited for the second half of the season to begin that he ran onto Chase Field on Friday night. During the ninth inning of the Cubs-Diamondbacks game, this fan wanted a selfie with Gerardo Parra so he took to the outfield—cell phone in hand.

Arizona Diamondbacks: the Daniel Hudson story

Ladies and gentleman we’ve arrived at the worst part of the sports year. There have been no professional sporting events happening since Sunday, unless you count the dreadful MLB All Star Game which was essentially three hours of Harold Reynolds spewing romantic poetry about Derek Jeter.
