  • D-backs manager Kirk Gibson is happy with current roster

    The deadline for players to be eligible for Major League post-season rosters is Thursday, which means if the Arizona Diamondbacks are to add another player the move better come fast.

  • ESPN expert says Kevin Kolb is 18th best quarterback in NFL

    Being compared to Chad Pennington is probably not something Kevin Kolb was hoping for.

  • Towers, Gibson hope Upton can keep his cool

    PHOENIX – Arizona Diamondbacks star outfielder Justin Upton has been hit 15 times this season prompting people to wonder why doesn’t he charge the mound and send a message.

  • Ian Kennedy is best thing to happen to Daniel Hudson

    The Diamondbacks are in first place largely because of the way both Ian Kennedy and Daniel Hudson have pitched this season.

  • Trevor Bauer won’t be eligible for playoffs if Diamondbacks make it

    When the Arizona Diamondbacks selected Trevor Bauer there was a thought that the UCLA star could pitch for the big league club this season.
