Campana grateful for new home with D-backs

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- After the Chicago Cubs designated outfielder Tony Campana for assignment on Feb. 10, he wasn't sure where he'd go next or how he'd stay sharp -- he ended up utilizing a local gym and a public batting cage. Now with the Diamondbacks following his trade to the team Monday, Campana still faces some uncertainty, but he's pleased to at least have...

Diamondbacks Acquire Tony Campa’s Base Stealing

The Arizona Diamondbacks outfield roulette continued today, as they announced they’d shipped a pair of low level minor leaguers to Chicago in exchange for Tony Campana. Yes, the Diamondbacks just traded for another outfielder, despite the fact that their OF is already one of the most crowded in baseball. With Adam Eaton and Gerardo Parra in the fold, it doesn’t seem entirely...

Crazy Legs Campana Headed to the Desert

Last week, the Cubs outrighted Tony Campana off thier 40-man to make room for Scott Hairston. Today, the Diamondbacks agreed to give up two pitchers for the speedster...RHP Erick Leal and RHP Jesus Castillo. Judging by the quality going out, I wouldn't expect much on the quality coming in, but maybe the Cubs unearth one of those diamonds in the rough. Leal, a 6-3" righty...

D-backs have by-example leader in Ross

PHOENIX Call Cody Ross a dirtbag and he smiles. It is the way he plays, and is it showing up already with the Diamondbacks. Ross and Adam Eaton went through outfield drills on the second day of full-squad workouts last week, and Eaton could not help but notice the pace. Ross seemed to be working about game speed, and Eaton asked him about it. Gotta get better, Ross answered simply...

Arizona Diamondbacks: 3 Up and 3 Down

The Arizona Diamondbacks went from 2011’s MLB darlings to 2012’s disappointment. A lot has to go wrong for a team to go from 94-68 and division winners by 8 games to 81-81 and 13 games out of first place just one year later. A closer examination of the numbers show that the D’backs actually scored 3 more runs in 2012 than in ’11 and only allowed 26 more. The big difference...

D-backs notes: McCarthy throws to hitters

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Diamondbacks right-hander Brandon McCarthy threw to hitters Monday for the first time since suffering a fractured skull and a brain contusion when he was struck by a line drive last September, and it went well. It honestly was completely normal, McCarthy said. There is that thought of, 'Is something going to happen?' The first time they swing, are you...

Courtesy of @CharlesBrewerAZ Heath Bell was acquired by the Arizona Diamondbacks last October in a trade with the Miami Marlins. And it appears as though the big right-hander is blending in just fine with his new club, literally.The D'backs held a Paintball Day as part of a team-building exercise at their spring training facility in Arizona on Tuesday, and as you can see, Bell...

The Trade of Campana Overshadows a Much Bigger Issue

In the midst of the breaking news about the trade of Tony Campana, the Chicago Cubs slipped a little bit of news into their press conference. Matt Garza, who left his first spring training outing with what was called a “minor strained lat” in his left side, is going to undergo an MRI. Now, if I were to ask you what the bigger deal was to Cubs Nation, you would undoubtedly say...

Chicago Cubs Trade Tony Campana

Today the hopes and dreams of Chicago Cub fans everywhere were crushed when multiple news outlets reported that the Chicago Cubs have traded away fan favorite Tony Campana to the Arizona Diamondbacks. Last week the speedy Campana was designated for assignment in order to make room for veteran outfielder Scott Hairston. Once the decision was made to designate Campana, the Cubs had...

Beware the Hype Machine: Paul Goldschmidt

Photo credit: Sports Crazy At the tender age of 24, Paul Goldschmidt batted .286/.359/.490 with 20 HRs and 18 SBs (against just three caught stealings). He scored and knocked in 82 runs in just 145 games. This followed up a somewhat impressive debut in 2011, during which he socked eight dingers in just 48 games. However, there is a reason Goldschmidt only played 145 games last season...

Three D-backs bid for last spot in rotation

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. In a perfect world, the Diamondbacks would break camp with two left-handers in the starting rotation, the better to match up against the likes of division lefties Carlos Gonzalez, Adrian Gonzalez, Yonder Alonso and even switch-hitter Chase Headley, who hits better from that side. But general manager Kevin Towers has made it perfectly clear that the competition...

Little bit of everything Cubs

I woke up this morning and for the first time all winter, I am suffering from a bad case of Offseason Blues.  Perhaps it’s because for the first time all winter, I had to pull out the shovel to clear away that horrid white stuff off my driveway.  Or perhaps it’s because the sub-zero windchill temperatures slapped at my face as I did so.  I just need a reminder that the crack...
