Why the Arizona Diamondbacks could be this year’s sleeper playoff team

Almost a month into the MLB season, it’s hard not to notice the Arizona Diamondbacks’ early competence. A team that lost 93 games a season ago now stands at 14-8, one of the best records in the league. With the NL Wild Card seemingly wide open, does the team have a real shot at playoff run? It’s a reasonable question to ask. After swinging for the fences in 2016, trading super...

Yasmany Tomas is an Arizona Wrecking Ball

This Diamondbacks team entered the season full of unknowns. There were far more questions than answers and while you could surely squint and see a path to success for the squad, it was a narrow path. It would require solid pitching from both the rotation and the bullpen, and some steady production from some flawed position players. The team could …

The Diamondbacks Might Have Found Two Good Relievers

We currently have them projected as the very worst group of relievers in Major League Baseball. The closer is 40 years old and has some of the most significant command problems of any pitcher in the league. The best 2016 ERA of...

The Diamondbacks are getting even more ambitious with this year’s ballpark food
