Diamondbacks edge Marlins to complete 4-game sweep

  The Arizona Diamondbacks scored the run that put them ahead to stay Thursday thanks to a walk, a bobbled bunt and two infield singles. "It wasn't very conventional," manager Chip Hale said. That's the way it works when things are going well for a team -- or in the case of the Miami Marlins, not going well. A.J. Pollock drove in the go-ahead run when he barely beat out a hit with...

Closer Report, Week 7: Goodbye Mr. Happy, and a Snake Committee?

Big changes since last week kibitzed away and lot's of rankings went up and down.  The regions in the south seem to be upping the border patrol in regards to the save situation, as both Texas and Arizona are forming committees.  For this week, I would rather focus on the desert instead of the burbs of Arlington.  So with the demotion of Addison Reed and a full on committee type...

Revisiting The D’Backs Young Rotation

This spring, the Arizona rotation was a fascinating mix of imported and home-grown youth, and Josh Collmenter and Jeremy Hellickson. Each of the youngsters gave us a point of emphasis this spring, and now that they’ve each had a few chances to show their work, we could give out some first semester grades. And maybe […]

Hard-throwing rookie Enrique Burgos got his first career save on Monday for the Diamondbacks, closing the door on the Marlins in the 13th inning. On Tuesday, Burgos notched a more traditional save, whiffing two Marlins while allowing a hit and a walk in the ninth. Monday's outing could have been a fluke, and Tuesday's might have had something to do with Brad Ziegler being unavailable...

Arizona Diamondbacks: Bullpen provides no relief

Oliver Perez A bullpen for a Major League organization is so critical for success, and a bullpen is what the Arizona Diamondbacks lack. One game after another, the relief pitchers find someway to add a number in the loss column as they alone have a 4-7 record to the Arizona total 14-17. Some of the names in the D-Back bullpen include Oliver Perez, Evan Marshall, Brad Ziegler, and...
