2015 season preview: Arizona Diamondbacks

In 2011, the Arizona Diamondbacks won 94 games and the NL West division crown before falling just short in the division series.

Player Profile #3: Paul Goldschmidt | 1B | ARI

If you are lucky enough to have a top three pick in your draft you sure can’t go wrong with taking Paul Goldschmidt — unless, of course, you have the first overall pick. For me Mike Trout remains the clear cut number one and the only real debate is whether or not to go with Goldschmidt or Andrew McCutchen. However, if you take position out of the equation, the clear-cut choice...
