Barajas, 37, saw his first regular action as a big leaguer with the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2001 — the year the team beat the New York Yankees in the World Series. Even though he only batted .160 in 51 games as a backup catcher that season, Barajas went 2-for-5 with a home run in the thrilling seven-game series.

So far on the countdown, the only team that I was down on that some have disagreed with is the Milwaukee Brewers. The pitching is going to be a concern and I do see them taking a major step back this season. Really, from here forward, most teams are more evenly matched. However, I have the Diamondbacks next on my list, ranking them #23 on the 30-1 MLB countdown previews. Arizona...
