  • Arizona Diamondbacks sign 1B Lyle Overbay

    Xavier Nady suffered a fractured left hand on Friday night and by Saturday afternoon the Arizona Diamondbacks made a move to shore up the depth gap at first base. Former Diamondback Lyle Overbay was signed after being unconditionally released by the Pittsburgh Pirates on August 9. Overbay hit .227 in 103 games this season with […]
  • Ian Kennedy quietly wins 15th game

    The Arizona Diamondbacks, 4-3 winners over the New York Mets Friday night, have already surpassed their 2010 win total. Leading the NL West by a full two games, Arizona certainly has the look of a playoff team. You know, candidates for both MVP and Cy Young, timely hitting and a good bullpen. In fact, just […]
  • Inside the Box: Kennedy his usual self

    After every Arizona Diamondbacks game we’ll examine the box score and provide you with instant analysis. So it’s time to go Inside the Box for August 12, 2011: Diamondbacks 4, Mets 3 The Good: Justin Upton homered in the first inning and the Diamondbacks never looked back. It was Justin’s 24th long ball of the […]
  • Diamondbacks get down but they’re never out

    The Arizona Diamondbacks took three of four games from the Houston Astros this week, needing late rallies for two of the wins. Such has often been the case for the 2011 D-backs, as they’ve shown great resiliency on the way to taking over first place in the NL West. “Come from behind wins are probably […]
  • Chris Young, Diamondbacks still earning respect

    Chris Young’s walk-off homer Thursday night against the Astros was his first home run since July 2nd. That alone would make it a refreshing moment, but the fact that the Astros disrespected Young by leaving a lefty in to face him made it even more satisfying. “I hadn’t hit a home run in a while, […]
  • The Arizona Diamondbacks are looking to add a bat

    The Arizona Diamondbacks are 12 games over .500 and in first place in the NL West but can they get better? If team president Derrick Hall has his way they will. Derrick Hall D-Backs President just told us they are looking to add a bat by the Aug 31st waiver deadline and will invest in […]
  • Inside the Box: Goldschmidt, Young homers win it

    After every Arizona Diamondbacks game we’ll examine the box score and provide you with instant analysis. So it’s time to go Inside the Box for August 11, 2011: Diamondbacks 8, Astros 5 The Good: Holy comeback. Just when it looked like the D-backs were going to split the series with the Astros, Paul Goldschmidt stepped […]
  • Gibson: ‘We want to be there the last day of the season’

    The Arizona Diamondbacks woke up August 11th atop the NL West standings. Forgive them for not being excited. “Obviously you want to be there,” Manager Kirk Gibson told reporters Thursday. “It doesn’t really mean anything. “We want to be there the last day of the season.” There are a lot of games left between now […]
  • Justin Upton, the Diamondbacks’ legitimate MVP candidate

    Justin Upton is having a good season for the Arizona Diamondbacks. A .300 average, 23 home runs, 72 RBI, 75 runs scored and 17 stolen bases are certainly numbers worthy of an All-Star appearance, but an MVP award, too? Upton hopes so. “I want to play well, I want our team to win this division […]
  • Not crazy to think more fans should go to D-backs games

    The Arizona Diamondbacks’ attendance woes are no secret. The Houston Astros have not helped things, but overall the D-backs just don’t draw as well as they’d like or, really, like a first place team should. Arizona ranks 21st in the Major Leagues, seeing an average of 23,962 fans each night at Chase Field. Sports 620 […]
  • Cardinal sin? Another receiver is off the market

    The Arizona Cardinals have maintained that they are fine with the receivers currently on the roster, but it’s anyone’s guess as to how truthful their claims are. If, in fact, the team is in the market for a wideout, their number of options took another hit Thursday. Former Jets WR Jericho Cotchery will agree to […]
  • Countdown is on for D-backs to sign Archie Bradley

    When the Diamondbacks selected pitcher Archie Bradley out of Broken Arrow High School they were getting a guy with great stuff — and an offer to play quarterback at Oklahoma. There was some thought that the D-backs may have a somewhat difficult time signing the 6-foot-4 right-hander, a task the team has until Monday to […]
  • Arizona Diamondbacks still willing to add a piece

    The Arizona Diamondbacks are in sole position of first place in the NL West for the first time since June. If you told most people back in March they would be in contention this late in the season, let alone in first place, they probably would have laughed at you. While expectations weren’t exactly high […]
  • Collmenter steps up in big way for Diamondbacks

    It was an important start for Josh Collmenter. The D-backs rookie, pitching for his job (at least, in the eyes of some), had given up 11 runs over his previous two starts, throwing a total of six innings. Wednesday night he went seven, and wow did the Diamondbacks need every one of them in their […]
  • Gonzalez remains optimistic about Marquis, Goldschmidt

    Nearly two weeks ago the Diamondbacks made a few moves, including trading for pitcher Jason Marquis and calling up first baseman Paul Goldschmidt from Double-A Mobile. Neither has had much success since donning the Sedona Red, with Marquis posting a 12.38 ERA in two starts and Goldschmidt struggling his way to a .192 batting average […]
  • Putz showcases athleticism in win over Astros

    The tying run is at second base with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning. J.J. Putz is in to close the game, one in which the D-backs rallied from six down to take the lead. A win against one of the NL’s worst teams would be huge, while a loss, especially now, […]
  • Gibson gave Upton permission to ‘have a blow out’

    Justin Upton was not pleased with the way home plate umpire C.B. Bucknor was calling the game Tuesday night. Having recorded just two hits in 16 at bats prior to the game, the right fielder was frustrated. And the umpire wasn’t helping. “C.B. kind of eye-walked him all the way out to the outfield, and […]
  • The time was right for the Diamondbacks, Goldschmidt

    It was time for Paul Goldschmidt to become a Diamondback. After tearing up the Double-A level there was really nothing left for the man to prove in the minor leagues. “Goldschmidt has crazy raw power and a pretty good idea of the strike zone,” ESPN MLB insider Keith Law said. “What he lacks is…he doesn’t […]
  • ESPN MLB insider: Give Upton time

    Sometimes we forget the fact that Justin Upton is just 23. Already a veteran of four Major League seasons, Upton’s tenure with the Diamondbacks is surpassed only by Miguel Montero and Chris Young. “We get thrown off by the rare position player who gets to the big leagues before his 20th birthday because then they’re […]
  • Don’t overreact about Jason Marquis’ first two starts

    If Jason Marquis keeps it up he may earn himself the nickname ‘two face’. That’s because he’s been a drastically different pitcher than he was in Washington before the Arizona Diamondbacks acquired him. Prior to being dealt to the desert at the trade deadline Marquis had put up stellar numbers. He had an 8-5 record […]
