D-backs' farm system rich ... and staying put

When general manager Kevin Towers passed on trading deadline deals that would have thinned the Diamondbacks minor league system, the recent performance of Patrick Corbin was the sort of thing that informed his thinking. Corbin has made two quality starts since returning from Class AAA Reno to the rotation Aug. 1. He beat the Los Angeles Dodgers with six shutout innings that day...

Lyle Overbay: Sneaky Stretch Addition?

Lyle Overbay is available. The 35-year-old was designated for assignment July 31 by the Diamondbacks, a move that set him to clear waivers Friday and become a free agent should no team take him off Arizona’s hands. It’s understandable why the Diamondbacks let Overbay go. He only mustered two hits in his final 25 at-bats for the team as Paul Goldschmidt established himself as...

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Arizona Diamondbacks – Game 110

Corbin, D-backs try to evens series vs. Pirates

Pittsburgh's Jeff Karstens hopes this start against the Arizona Diamondbacks goes better than his first. Based on how he's been pitching lately, his dominance at home and his previous success in the series, he would seemingly have better luck in the rematch. Karstens tries to win his fifth straight decision and help the Pirates move 17 games over .500 for the first time...

Kubel homers twice as D-backs down Pirates

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Jason Kubel homered twice, Joe Saunders pitched seven effective innings and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-3 on Thursday. Both of Kubel's home runs immediately followed hits by Aaron Hill. Wil Nieves also hit a two-run homer in his Diamondbacks debut. Saunders (6-8) retired 14 consecutive batters in the middle innings. He allowed two...

Kennedy, D-backs edged by Pirates

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Neil Walker homered and drove in five runs, Kevin Correia won his seventh straight decision and the Pittsburgh Pirates overcame four errors to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-6 Wednesday night. Walker hit a three-run homer in the first -- his career-high 13th of the season -- and added a two-run double in the fifth to give Pittsburgh the lead for good. His 65...

GIFcap: Paul Goldschmidt Found Out About Starling Marte’s Arm The Hard Way

About halfway to second, after he saw the path of the throw, you know he just wanted to turn around and head back to the dugout already

OPS Fantasy Leagues: Cry Me A River

Justin Upton – This year his season has been tearing up my heart. He’s posting the lowest OPS of his career since he was a rookie in 2007. Since that time, he’s oscillated between great years in 2009 (.899 OPS) and 2011 (.898 OPS) and merely good years in 2008 (.816 OPS) and 2010 (.799 OPS). Currently, he’s producing a .756 OPS, but there are many signs pointing to a potential...

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Arizona Diamondbacks – Game 109

Huge win last night.  Mostly because of the start by Bedard.  What a start, eh?   First Pitch: 7:05 PM EST Where to Watch:  Root Sports, MLB.TV, FS-A   Patrick Corbin, LHP (23) Yeah, you saw that right. Another lefty. The Diamondbacks seem to be overflowing with lefties. Hell the Pirates are slated to see [...]

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Arizona Diamondbacks – Game 111

I would be lying if I said these last few games instilled a ton of confidence.  Maybe the bullpen is just going through a bad stretch, I don’t know.  Still two more runs allowed by the pen is at least slightly concerning and something to keep an eye on.   First Pitch:  4:05 PM EST [...]

In SUPER YES-MO, we are watching the world collapse

Every day, a new capillary bursts. It's like living in Bill O'Reilly's nose. Last night brought the sick revelation that Austin Jackson is a better CF than the star swoosh- machine we traded him for, which means the two most meaningful prospects our farm system developed in the last 10 years - Ian Kennedy and Jackson - were jetisoned in a trade. Ahh, but that'...
