  • D-backs must ‘be smarter’ on the basepaths

    If you’re tired of seeing Diamondbacks runners getting caught stealing, get in line. Nineteen times has a D-back been caught stealing, tops in the National League. However, the team has stolen 37 bases — third most in the NL — so there is something to be said for the aggressive approach. “It’s our responsibility not […]
  • Touch ‘Em All: D-backs take two of three from Brewers

    I would like to take a moment, before I start talking about baseball, to thank all the men and women who have served our country past or present. The moment of silence we took before each game this weekend to honor the fallen troops is one that should happen every day. I can’t thank you […]
  • From the deer stand to the pitcher’s mound: Wade Miley’s path to spotlight

    Wade Miley wears a lot of camouflage in the offseason. It keeps him covert up in the deer stand. But as hunting season came to a close this spring, when it was time for Miley to shed the camouflage uniform and don a Sedona red one, he remained hidden — not by a deer stand […]

  • Touch ‘Em All: D-backs lose series to L.A.

    Stick a fork in ‘em. That’s right, I’m calling it, the 2012 Arizona Diamondbacks are out of the NL West race. Yes, I know they won convincingly on Wednesday, but let’s be honest about that Dodgers lineup; four of the starters were playing in Triple-A on Opening Day, and Andre Ethier wasn’t in the game […]

  • D-backs GM Towers: ‘I’m tired of hearing about the excuses’

    The Arizona Diamondbacks are not anywhere near where they’d like to be, as they sit a good distance back of the Dodgers in the NL West and are struggling to find any sense of momentum as they sputter through the season. And, while the goal is still to improve and ultimately reach the postseason, GM […]
  • D-backs’ Putz gets vote of confidence from Gibson

    J.J. Putz was one of the biggest reasons why the Arizona Diamondbacks transformed from a last place team in 2009 and 2010 into a division champion. Putz registered a career-high 45 saves a season ago, and was nearly unhittable following the All-Star break when he converted all 24 of his opportunities and posted a minuscule […]
  • Understatement: Tuesday’s loss to Dodgers devastating for Diamondbacks

    Let us begin with a euphemism: “The Diamondbacks’ loss on Tuesday night was devastating.” By the end of the third inning on Tuesday night, I thought I was finally getting a glimpse of solid starting pitching combined with run support and defense. Josh Bell — the newly-ordained everyday third baseman — hit a 453-foot home […]
  • D-backs’ Gibson: Roberts has a lot to give to this team

    For the struggling Ryan Roberts, little has gone according to plan this season. So when Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson announced Josh Bell would be taking over the reins at third base, yet another blow was dealt to a player who showed so much promise last year. Roberts, a consummate professional, accepts his role as a […]

  • Wade Miley: One thing that has gone right for D-backs this year

    Throughout all the ups and downs this season has had to offer the Diamondbacks — OK, mostly downs — one positive has emerged: Wade Miley. The rookie left-hander entered the rotation April 23rd in place of the injured Daniel Hudson, has been a breath of fresh air for a team that has seen its pitchers […]
  • Disturbing trend: D-backs struggle against soft-throwing lefties

    Whether it’s due to being over-aggressive, a few bad days or something else, one thing has proven true about the Arizona Diamondbacks this season: They stink against soft-throwing lefties. Over the last week Arizona has faced Jamie Moyer, Bruce Chen and Chris Capuano, losing to all three, and looking bad while doing so. Moyer, who […]
  • Daniel Hudson pitches well in rehab start

    Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander Daniel Hudson returned to the pitcher’s mound Monday night for Triple-A Reno in a 10-4 win over the New Orleans Zephyrs. Hudson threw five innings, allowing two runs on five hits while walking one and striking out two. Hudson threw 71 pitches, 47 of them for strikes. The 24-year-old has been on […]
  • Home not where the wins are for D-backs

    Long road trips are a part of baseball that most would like to do without. Sure, in the big leagues, team personnel travel on chartered flights, stay in five-star hotels and eat in the finest restaurants, but there’s still comfort and relief in getting home. The Arizona Diamondbacks returned from a three-city, seven-game roadie to […]
  • D-backs’ Montero day-to-day with mild groin strain

    The injury bug continues to bite the Arizona Diamondbacks. Catcher Miguel Montero exited Monday night’s game against the Dodgers due to a mild left groin strain.

  • Rumor: D-backs prepared to shop Joe Saunders

    The Diamondbacks, for all their early season struggles, still have one incredibly valuable thing going for them: Outstanding pitching depth. Between Ian Kennedy, Daniel Hudson, Wade Miley, Trevor Cahill, Joe Saunders and Patrick Corbin, the team has plenty of capable big league arms, and that doesn’t include minor leaguers Trevor Bauer and Tyler Skaggs, either […]
