We Stand In Support Of The Arizona State Selfie Squad @ Chase Field

Some sorority sisters in Arizona decided to go to a baseball game. And now, in the midst of the postseason schedule finally coming into focus, all anyone can talk about is ZOMG SULLLFEEEEEEEESSSSS! The announcers are not amused, because – tradition. Or something. If you’re also annoyed by this… STOP. The Diamondbacks are 77-81 and not close to a playoff berth. They’re playing...

D-backs slip past Rockies on Gosselin's walk-off single in 11th

PHOENIX -- Robbie Ray found his mojo after a rocky start, the bullpen was brilliant and the offense was just good enough for the Diamondbacks to squeak out a 4-3, 11-inning victory over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night in the first game of a season-ending six-game homestand. Reserve infielder Phil Gosselin, acquired in a midseason trade with Atlanta, delivered the game-winner...

Peter O'Brien tells D-backs he's open to return to catching

PHOENIX -- Peter O'Brien has told the Diamondbacks he's up for another shot at catching. Manager Chip Hale said Tuesday that O'Brien, who had 26 home runs among his 70 extra-base hits at Triple-A Reno this year, approached the team about getting back behind the plate -- perhaps in spring training 2016. O'Brien was in the catching mix during 2015 spring training but asked to concentrate...

Arizona Diamondbacks impact prospects in 2016

Which prospects are going to make a difference for the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2016? Whether or not it’s a realistic goal, the team will be aiming for the playoffs, which isn’t surprising considering that’s been the strategy since 2011. The D’Backs will obviously receive contributions from usual stars Paul Goldschmidt, AJ Pollock, and Patrick Corbin, just to name a few...

Who is leaving the Arizona Diamondbacks this off season?

Sometimes addition by subtraction is the best move a team stocked with depth can make, and the Arizona Diamondbacks are in that situation (actually, the real best move would be to sign an ace, but we’ll see about that one). Contracts expiring after this season include those of Jhoulys Chacin, Jarrod Saltalamacchia, and David Hernandez. Additionally, the team has a 1.8 million...

Diamondbacks Bullpen Battles LA Heat With Tarp Tent

Despite the calendar nearing October, weather continues to be disgustingly hot in LA with temperatures in the mid-90s — this is not okay with some members of the Arizona Diamondbacks’ bullpen. Away from the friendly confines of their desert dome (with pool), Diamondbacks players made themselves a makeshift tent during today’s afternoon affair against the Dodgers: Happy campers...

2015 Farewells: Arizona Diamondbacks

It is that part of the year when pennant race positioning becomes the priority for some, while an early look to the next spring is the forced reality for others. It is a chance to book better winter destination vacations for some, emptier seats for most and a chance for reflection for all. The tides are beginning to turn in the MLB Farewells series that has been running over the...

End of season post-mortem: 2015 Arizona Diamondbacks

The first year of the Tony LaRussa/Dave Stewart regime in Phoenix provided plenty of comic relief for snarky baseball bloggers, but more importantly it also provided a step forward for a franchise one year removed from a 98-loss season. The Diamondbacks were over .500 as late as August 23, and while they likely won’t finish with a winning record this year they showed enough on...

Meow: Tony La Russa mugs for camera in photo-op with ‘Grumpy Cat’ (pic)

Tony La Russa isn’t as highly visible in his role as Arizona Diamondbacks Chief Baseball Office compared to his managing days, but anytime he shows up at the ballpark he attracts attention … especially when it involves an absolutely and absurdly comical photo-op with a feline and Internet phenomenon known as “Grumpy Cat.” The Diamondback held a “Grumpy Cat” promotion...

Rubby De La Rosa sails pitch over catcher for weird balk

Rubby De La Rosa is enjoying a pretty decent season with the Arizona Diamondbacks, and he continued that success with another solid outing Tuesday night. Well, if you ignore that time he randomly stepped off the mound and chucked the ball over his catcher’s head. De La Rosa toed the rubber in the first inning of Arizona’s contest against the Colorado Rockies and was about to...

JABO: The Diamondbacks’ Hidden Star

A few months ago, someone asked me who the most underrated player in baseball was, and after kicking around a few names, I settled on Arizona outfielder A.J. Pollock. Pollock got to the big leagues as a speed-and-defense center fielder who hit well enough to justify a regular gig, and then had his breakout year derailed last season when Johnny Cueto hit him in the hand with a fastball...

Paul Goldschmidt lined a double that got stuck in the wall

We see balls get stuck between the pads of the outfield wall every so often, but they usually get stuck after a bounce. On Tuesday night, Paul Goldschmidt hit a screamer of a line drive against the Cardinals that got stuck between the pads without even bouncing. That’s a ground rule double. Goldschmidt would score the Diamondbacks’ only run of the night later in the inning on...
