  • D-backs’ Upton: ‘We did nothing but get better’

    The Arizona Diamondbacks won the NL West in 2011 with a roster made up of few stars. After all, for every Justin Upton and Miguel Montero there was a Ryan Roberts and Gerardo Parra.

  • Roberts, D-Backs won’t change outlook to season

    Ryan Roberts quickly became a fan favorite last season with his clutch hitting, fiery attitude, and “Tatman” nickname.
