The Rise Of Jake Lamb

At the beginning of the season, the discussion of the top third basemen in the NL included the names Nolan Arenado, Kris Bryant, and Matt Carpenter.

You Want The Lamb Souvlikey Or The Shish-Kabuy?

To understand Jake Lamb, I think it's important to go back to the 1964 Summer Olympics when his father's hero, Lambis Manthos, was competing for Greece in the 50 meter pistol shooting event.  Due to a clerical error, Lambis thought he was competing in the 50 centimeter pistol shooting event.  Lambis practiced shooting dinner plates from about 20 inches away.  At one point...

Jake Lamb on Being a Gap-to-Gap Diamondback

Jake Lamb is off to a solid start in the production department. The left-handed-hitting third baseman homered in Arizona’s opener, and he doubled in game two. There’s more where that came from. Lamb slugged just .386 in 109 games with the Diamondbacks last year, but he did so as a young player with a foot injury. In three-plus seasons on the farm, he slashed .321/.408/.552. Lamb...

Arizona Diamondbacks: Jake Lamb has arrived

One benefit to the Arizona Diamondbacks being so horrendous in 2014 is that young prospects get an early look at the major leagues. Most of the time elite prospects do not get called up in August on contending teams because they are contending for a reason and managers do not want to rock the boat by bringing up a young 20-year-old. Of course there are exceptions to this rule like...
