BEST OF MAXIM
A year ago, the Arizona Diamondbacks were baseball's surprise team, going from worst to first to win the NL West.
This year, the surprise will be if they aren't contenders again.
A strong young rotation, vastly improved bullpen and a gritty style that led to a major league-best 48 come-from-behind wins propelled the Diamondbacks to the division title and a near-miss in...
Sometimes baseball players make so much money that even the people delivering the checks don’t know what to do with them. At age 23, Diamondbacks outfield prospect Adam Eaton is not yet raking in the big bucks — by baseball standards of course. Since he has yet to play beyond Double-A, you can understand why Eaton was surprised when he received an envelope from the MLB Players...
After winning the NL West in 2011, one would think the Arizona Diamondback would have a lot of quality players on their team. And they would be right. But how many of them are potential keepers?
Let’s take a look:
SP Ian Kennedy broke out in a big way last season, leading the NL with 21 wins to go along with a 2.88 ERA and 198 K’s. His numbers are projected to regress a little...
JUUUST A BIT OUTSIDE
The Milwaukee Brewers will honor Hall of Fame broadcaster and actor Bob Uecker with a statue located in Home Plate Plaza alongside the statues of Hank Aaron, Bud Selig and Robin Yount.
Hall of Fame Broadcaster Bob Uecker is going to be honored by the Milwaukee Brewers this summer with a statue outside Miller Park.
The 77-year-old Uecker became a household name as a comedic actor who often made fun of his career as a light-hitting catcher. He's been in the Brewers' radio booth since 1971.
His statue will stand next to those of Hank Aaron, Robin Yount and...
PHOENIX They were once Harvey's Wallbangers. Then they were the Prince and his Court.
Regardless of the moniker hung on the Milwaukee Brewers, the one thing it seemed they were known was the heavy lumber in the lineup.
The Brewers just might have the deepest pitching staff not only in the NL Central this year, but in the entire National League, which is why the...
Don't let my social awkwardness, my obsession with stand-up comedy, the list of two-letter Scrabble words I've committed to memory, the TWO fact books I own, the drunken conversations I've had about AP Style changes, and my mere participation on this baseball blog fool you... I am not cool in the slightest. In fact, I consider myself to be something of a nerd. Furthering...
Prince Fielder is gone. Hope for the Milwaukee Brewers to win the NL Central and make another playoff run remains very much in place.
Yes, the Brewers will miss Fielder and the way his presence in the middle of the lineup made opposing pitchers sweat. But the team expected him to leave as a free agent all along, so it wasn't a shock when he signed a $214 million, nine-year contract...
Gerardo Parra hit a two-run homer off Barry Zito and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Francisco Giants 4-3 on Tuesday.
Zito threw 83 pitches in five innings, his longest outing of the spring. He allowed three runs and seven hits while walking four and striking out three.
Three of Arizona's top prospects figured prominently in the game.
Trevor Bauer, drafted No. 3 overall...
