Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there. That's as much of a preview as you get though because I am doing my own Father's Day stuff today. I'm sure you'll get over the disappointment.
BEST OF MAXIM
ANAHEIM, Calif. Part one of the grand reunion played out Friday, when the Diamondbacks beat former teammate Dan Haren.
Birthday boy Joe Saunders will attempt to make it 2-for-2 when he turns 31 on Saturday.
And while Haren and Saunders, the principles in the D-backs' 2010 trading deadline deal, will take the mound within 24 hours of each other this weekend, Trevor Cahill ...
Arizona's Joe Saunders hopes his first start against his former team goes a bit better than Los Angeles Angels right-hander Dan Haren's did in the series opener.
Saunders looks to help the surging Diamondbacks move over .500 for the first time in six weeks Saturday night in his return to Angel Stadium.
In their first trip to Anaheim since 2001, the Diamondbacks (32-32)...
Ervin Santana tossed a one-hit gem against the visiting Diamondbacks on Saturday night, while carrying a perfect game deep into the seventh inning.
To say that the performance is a surprise to fantasy owners would be an understatement, as Santana entered the outing with a 3-7 record to go along with a bloated 5.74 ERA. Santana gave up seven earned runs on eight hits in his previous...
The Arizona Diamondbacks have not scored in 21 innings, but they are hoping a return home to face the pitcher with baseball's worst road ERA can wake up their slumbering bats.
The Diamondbacks have also lost seven straight meetings with the Seattle Mariners heading into Monday night's matchup with Hector Noesi in the opener of a three-game set.
Arizona (32-34) finished...
Los Angeles Angels ace Jered Weaver will be activated from the disabled list on Wednesday, when he will make his first start in more than two weeks. Weaver suffered a strained lower back in the first inning on May 28 and has not pitched since. He felt good during his bullpen session on Sunday, and is scheduled to pitch Wednesday against the Giants. Angels manager Mike Scioscia...
ANAHEIM, Calif. Ervin Santana was not perfect Saturday, but he was close enough to leave the Diamondbacks perfectly miserable.
Justin Upton had the D-backs only hit, a solid single to center field with two outs in the seventh inning, and the D-backs suffered a 2-0 loss to the Los Angeles Angels on what has become a feast-or-famine road trip to the land of the designated hitter...
Trevor Cahill pitched three-hit ball into the eighth inning, Aaron Hill hit a three-run homer, and the Arizona Diamondbacks slowed the Los Angeles Angels' roll through June with a 5-0 victory Friday night.
Jason Kubel had three hits and drove in an early run for the Diamondbacks, who earned their ninth win in 12 games and got back to .500 (32-32) for just the second time since...
The Los Angeles Angels have designated David Pauley for assignment, MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez reports. The move creates room for infielder Andrew Romine who was recalled from Triple-A.
Pauley went 0-1 with a 4.35 ERA, 0.9 HR/9, 2.6 BB/9 and 3.5 SO/9 in 10.1 innings with the Angels this season.

ANAHEIM, Calif. The pitcher and the manager agreed on two salient points Friday night.
The pitcher felt good, and the pitcher made one critical mistake.
Sometimes that's all it takes. Dan Haren knows that as well as anyone.
The Angels right-hander threw a pretty good game against the Arizona Diamondbacks in the opener of a three-game series at Angel Stadium. The one pitch...

We can split up the season in relatively rough, but surprising close, thirds:
First 20 games: 6-14 (.300)
Next 23 games: 12-11 (.522)
Last 21 games: 16-5 (.762)
This was of course before last night's 5-0 loss to the Diamondbacks, but it doesn't change the fact that the Angels just keep getting better. They won'...
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Ervin Santana took a perfect game into the seventh inning before finishing with a one-hitter, and Mark Trumbo hit a two-run homer in the Los Angeles Angels' 2-0 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday night.
Santana (4-7) bounced back from several rough outings by retiring Arizona's first 20 hitters before Justin Upton's two-out single...

PHOENIX (AP) -- Aaron Hill hit a solo homer in the seventh inning to become the fifth Arizona player to hit for the cycle, lifting the Diamondbacks to a 7-1 win over the Seattle Mariners on Monday night.
Hill hit a single in the first inning off Hector Noesi (2-8), added a triple in the third and a double off the Mariners starter in the fifth. He finished it off in style, hitting...
Again last week, my picks were nothing better than sub-par. That being said, the picks I gave you were much better than last week. I rolled the dice with three of my picks last week (Richards for two, Matusz and Millwood). Luckily, I went with three whose performances were not too horrible (my points H2H league does not consider hits allowed).
Also last week, if you grabbed...
