  • Should the D-backs want the Phillies in the first round?

    PHOENIX – The Arizona Diamondbacks pretty much have the NL West division locked up and heading for the playoffs.

  • ESPN insider says Kennedy may get wins, but not Cy Young

    Ian Kennedy is in the conversation.

  • Gibson goes Sheen route when talking Kennedy and Hudson

  • Success validates Diamondbacks, Gibson

    Kirk Gibson took over a team that, to put it mildly, wasn’t very good. The team was 31-48 when he replaced A.J. Hinch, and was well on its way to a 97-loss season. Needless to say things had to change, and Gibson made sure they did. “The thing that we’ve done well is to overcome […]
